    my sisters and I used to joke that at the Emmy Awards there should be a category for news, the "Most Tedious Coverage of a National Event" award.

    But, we were joking then.  Looks like the MSM is actually trying to compete for just such a prize these days...only the coverage is not just tedious now, but inane.

    The decline in cable news really disgusts me too - I really used to count on being able to get a quick rundown of the top stories on Headline News 15 years ago - what has happened since then??  Bimbo news readers with low cut necklines and flatulent buffoons like Glenn Beck - and where did the news go???That was the promise of the 24-hour cable news channels - up to the minute news available when your schedule allowed...but not any more.

    Television news is so awful these days....I watch Olbermann because he does get some interesting discussions going, but otherwise - jeeze - I hit the internets if I want any news.
