    I'm traveling at the moment and it gives one perspective how bad US television news is. CNN is brain-numbingly bad compared to BBC, Euronews, al-Jazirah, etc. CNN international has a little more news than the domestic version, but it still makes you just want to bang your head against something.

    It's yet another sign of US decline, and it doesn't need to be that way.  Nowhere is the infotainment decay more profoundly on display than on local morning shows across the US.  A performance artist embarrasses them (and himself) here:

    For those of you who can't watch video, this guy bills himself as a "yo-yo champion" and goes on various morning shows, where he procedes to wreck havoc.  Pretty funny.

      is my new hero!  Man that was funny!

      We need more like him, to expose the vapidity of what we call "news" in America.  This guy needs to team up with Sacha Baron Cohen.

      F***ing brilliant!
