Rundfarsing day 5
Lookit the bubbles
As one person said: we read the New York Times so you don't have to:)
Update: The Young Turks have a wonderful piece on both the HuffPo and their own site about Rita Cosby, and as I thought about it, it occured to me this horrifying thought. Crazy Nancy is, well, crazy, but she's serious. She really cares about the missing kids, things like Enron piss her off. There is the same scary face your high school principal used to remind you that you were working below your potential. Nancy Grace may think everyone is guilty, but it's an honest opinion, honestly held, and is usually, give conviction rates, more right than not.
Rita Cosby has a TV show. The most interesting thing about it is which shade of lipstick she'll wear. I think she's hotter with the reds, myself, but that's just me. However, her opinion means shit to me. They're just stories to her. And with that God awful voice, like 300 too many smokes, what is the point of her show? If I was MSNBC, I'd have the brains of Comedy Central and follow Countdown with the Rachel Maddow show, followed by the Ed Schultz show, toss all the conservatives into the drink, leave the crime to Crazy Nancy and the idiocy to Glenn Beck.
Why does Rita Cosby have a show? So some old exec can imagine her naked, or done up in that infamous getup Gwyneth Paltrow wore in Esquire? Because it can't have anything to do with News.
This just pissed me off to no end. Why is American "journalism" a joke? Why do the Rita Cosbys of the world get to do bad, imitative TV and call it news? At least with the blogs, we actually treat our readers like intelligent people.
