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!
You think anybody else is doing any different? The first part of “TV news” is TV, their job is to get people to watch commercials, if they can do that while reporting real news fine, if not that’s OK too.
I bet there will be diddly-s#*t about that on tonight’s news...yet alone some damn infomercial in ABC/NBC/CBS, etc. Oh, God help us; have mercy on us!
“Amazing how much reporting and crying over a pedophile!”
The man was a sick pervert. Its disgusting how much some worship him. Then again its amazing how some people love Slick Willie.
Fox sees the international money and ratings rolling in. This will be bigger outside the US than inside and most of the world doesn’t care about MJ and small children... they just see fame. :0/
Now we are in line for a solid week of funeral crapola! The best thing is that maybe those poor little kids might have a chance to get free.
I agree, I watched some of Shep and you would have thought his brother had died.
When he said Jackson was the greatest entertainer in the history of the planet that was enough.
Me thinks Shep had a secret Man Crush on Jackson and wanted to share that bed himself.
Jackson’s death will suck all the air out of TV programming for the next few nights.
I even saw Lester Holt waxing tears on Jackson on NBC and Brian Williams wasn’t far behind.
What a disgusting joke.
Let Shep get his queer on ...leave him alone!
the Oreilly factor starts in 5 mins at 5pm here on the west coast. i wonder if FNC will pre-empt it because I think its recorded earlier.
I had to change the channel, too, but waited a little while to see if Shep would start actually crying! He just blubbered on and on.
what the hell is he talking about now? the internet slowed to a crawl win Jacko died??? Free Republic was running fine here.
As for Shep ‘weeping’ over Jacko, again, it fits the pattern.
I mean if FoxNews was serious conservative news and journalism would they have ever hired Geraldo Rivera-?
THIS is what is IMPORTANT to the majority of Americans! Dunces, fools, ignoramuses!
Has Hollywood stopped to think that when we have all lost our livelihoods and buried in taxation --- we won't be able to support their adulation habit any longer? How are they going to make money from a Third World America?
FOX Loves Celebrity gossip stories, and will push ALL other stories aside for them. How many hours did we get of OJ?
I was thinking the same.
There’s no much bad shit in Congress right now with the vote tomorrow on ‘cap and tax’, and some valuable time is being WASTED on this coverage.
I know it’s a big story, but it shouldn’t have ‘wall to wall’ coverage like a major earthquake or something of the like.
Yep. I agree with your prescription.
This is a big story. And it JUST happened. It’s a shock. Smith just said something about the internet being inundated. I’m not surprised.
He was a celebrity. He was also controversial.
So who had sharpton on the TV whore pool?<<
Fat Al placed himself there with the willing complicity of the New York Media(Fox included).
Shep MTV/VH1 and the like DJ-ing on FNC now....
