Breaking News About Justin Bieber . . . ?

So in addition to drag racing and drunk driving, he also farted?

In PMSNBC’s defense, the Bieber story is sort of news, as opposed to the 24-7 politica-talk that the big three (CNN/Fox/MSNBC) usually carry nowadays. Like the drivel they were engaging in when the ‘news’ happened.

I was more than a little perturbed last night when watching the news. The time and energy devoted to this story was ridiculous. I got a little angry last night and asked my wife, “What the hell is wrong with this country? Why is this news?” (She keeps up more than I on these issues). To which she responded, “People are afraid of what they are calling the ‘Bieber affect’.”

Apparently, our nanny society is afraid that this “Teen idol” will influence our children into thinking that renting a Lamborgini at 19, drinking and doing drugs is ok because their hero does it. As a nation, we are now too stupid to govern ourselves as evidenced by the jacka$$ we elected president for two terms.

Just so. They know that their remaining audience would far rather hear the latest about the Justin Bieber scandal!

Can not believe the coverage this punk is getting ... even on Fox News.
On the other hand, this story FINALLY pushed "Bridge-gate" off CNN for awhile.

I have no doubt that a story — any story — about Justin Bieber is more newsworthy than listening to Jane Harman drone on about the NSA.

Of course its more important to discuss the antics of a Canadian/Canadien juvenile delinquent. Why question that?

The media going nuts over actors is not new.

I remember when the MSM was falling all over itself to tell us of the latest escapade, sickness and near death of ELIZABETH TAYLOR while filming CLEOPATRA back about 1963.

I remember a TV GUIDE cartoon from that time showing a TV set jumping toward a family with the words “FLASH!” on the screen while the family, including the dog, recoil in terror! The flash was for some silly thing of no importance.

Well, to be fair it WAS Jane Harmon. If I were the Producer in charge of the control room I’d have probably done the same thing.

Bieber needs to make as much money as he can and as soon as he can, because that 15 minutes is almost up.

Did FoxNews do the same? They used to be horrible about Hollywood news. I don’t watch them after the morning headlines any more.

When Anna Nichole Smith was the news, FoxNews ran FoxNews Alerts for at least 28 days in a row regarding Smith. I kept a running account of the daily Alerts regarding Smith. I quit watching after the 28th day of such pablum.

Our enemies laugh at us.

Why invade us when they can just sit back and let the whole thing collapse under its own weight of indifference and idiocy.

If I pay the impound fees, can I have the Ferrari or the Lambo?

Good heavens. These magnificent machines are wasted on these self-absorbed imbeciles.

I am also tired of people referring to a 19 year old as " just a kid who doesn't know any better."

We have 19 year olds who were wounded in Afghanistan and Iraq. The only thanks they get is to have their military benefits attacked by Washington DC.
