Okay...if I'm off-base, then flame me. But DH and I are fuming this evening to come home from work to learn that Fox News spent the 6-7 PM NEWS hour with Shep Smith crying over Michael Jackson. UN-FRICKIN-BELIEVABLE! There is so much crap going on in this country, the world, the economy, 10% unemployment, Congress/Obama getting ready to shove cap-n-trade down our throats, he and the big-she having a laeuiu at the Whie House...what in the hell is going on! The whole damn world is in fire! I'm so ticked off to not hear the Bret Baer news hour....what a frickin joke on the part of Fox News! And they want to be taken seriously?! Geesh! Enough already!
It’s understandable that this story is getting wall-to-wall coverage. It’s the biggest news story in the world. If Fox doesn’t cover it they’ll be the only ones.
I know, sheppie has been going on and on about how old he is (42) and how him and his little high school buddies back in ‘82 around the time of their high school graduation just couldn’t wait to get home and hear the new Thriller album by freakzoid MJ or some such garbage. BARF. I knew MJ was barf way back when he came out with that 123, easy as ABC, song in about 1968. BLECH BLECH. MJ was a loser.
I know you’re right, but doesn’t this say a lot about ourselves & where we’ve gone as a nation?
We are in such a hell-hole in this country anymore. I’m so disgusted, sick with it...and feel so utterly, completely, totally powerless to do anything about it. What is RIGHT is WRONG, and what is wrong is right. Nearly everyday I say to myself and often out loud: “God help us; God have mercy on us!” What else can I do? What else can be said. It’s all so surreal...
Thank you. You are exactly right and said it well.
I share your frustration. I want coverage on the Cap and Trade fiasco that Congress will vote on tomorrow. Can we get coverage of that, please?
Now a music video channel....
Just a random thought...
With MJ’s passing, it means that Patrick Swayze is okay for now....
If a nuclear World War III starts today would Shepherd Smith even notice?
Call O’Reilly’s show? He’s up next, right?
I remember during the Clinton/Lewinsky debacle saying to my dad that the only thing that could knock the story off the front page would be if Frank Sinatra died...and wouldn’t ya know it...he did!
Smith said they'd be obsessing over it "well into the wee hours of the morning".
Good thing there's nothing else happening, I guess.
Yes, right here at FR-
Mary Jean..you best turn your TV off for at least three days, because it will be all Michael Jackson, all the time.
>>With MJs passing, it means that Patrick Swayze is okay for now....<<
I wouldn’t be so sure — we had at least one FReeper predict MJs movin’ on...
One makeup wearing freak crying about another makeup wearing freak.
Yes it does, ChrisInAR....definitely...and it’s not pretty; it’s downright scary.
It is sad that he passed...but it just goes to show you what the MSM consider important news.
What’s right is wrong and what’s wrong is right. Sad days my FRiend...sad days.
>>At least we have Free Republic to get the real news of the day.<<
I dunno — after telling the 20th or 30th thread originator that the Jeff Goldblum Dies story is a hoax...
