On Air Personalities In a Tizzy
News personalities (anchors, reporters, whatever) do a pretty good job at feigning emotion to get what they want from us: our very precious attention. This time though, I almost found their emotion believable.
Here's a little news. We don't actually need TV anymore. Yeah, I said it. Least of all, network TV. Oh Phel, you're just being dramatic as they are. No, not really. Most of what's on TV is useless to most people, and the news is 80% spin. If you really want to know what's going on, you can turn on your computer or much, much worse: listen to talk radio.
At best, TV is background noise and some days, it can't even serve THAT purpose very well.
