CBS Makes Me Wanna Smoke Crack
I've gone so long without watching TV news, I've completely lost my tolerance for it. I can't believe how self-absorbed and theatrical these people are - not that we didn't already know that.
CBS' The Early Show is on the TV in the breakfast room. They just ran a gigantic fluff piece on the war in Iraq, complete with footage of laughing, well-scrubbed urchins and jocular soldiers surrounded by smiling Iraqis. "This is the side of the Iraq war that the mainstream media won't show you," they huffily declare.
Omigod. That is, like, so 2004.
