Or Fox News which ALWAYS has an ALERT. They abuse that word. Also the thing I am getting tired of with all newscasters is when they report a study of something and they say YOUR tax dollars, or YOUR this or YOUR that! It’s THEIR tax dollars as well as with other things and when they say YOUR the tick me off becuase it is talking DOWN to the viewers.
Same with holding a story saying NEXT when it takes two segments later to see it. Well, we don’t WAIT for the story. We move on or most of the time we come to our computer and click on FREE REPUBLIC who is head and shoulders above everyone else along with Drudge for the up to date news.
The cable and network news is all about glitzy, obnoxtious backgrounds of color and movement and all that crap on the bottom of the screen...sometimes three lines of info plus a ticker moving along.
You buy and pay for a large screen TV and then they put all this JUNK on it. Same with the football games... all this crap on your screen. It’s TOO MUCH about glitz and nonsense anymore. Two people on every set to chat. No wonder they run out of time when talking to guests...they have to have their time to chat before and after the interviews about silly stuff. Also back to you so and so and so and so and so and so. Is it really necessary to say back to you to ALL THE PEOPLE? For heaven’s sakes. Also when they intro someone they just about give an entire bio on them and it’s constant CHATTER. We BARELY watch anymore. FR is the place to be. The rest is all NOISE AND REPETITION. It gets sickening.
Hence my abandonment of TV per se, and of Fox News in particular. Would like to watch, but so little of it is what I’ve turned it on for, what with content diluted by distractions and irrelevancies. Here’s $10/month, give me NEWS: rotating mix of top & lesser stories, sidelined when there is REAL breaking news & alerts, straight factual delivery without glitz & ads.
