    News that isn't news.

    The news networks are insane, if nothing happens they have to find something to report anyway just to keep the advertisers happy.

    I just noticed this story.

    05/01/2007 -- Today, a dump truck rolled over and all the dirt came out. The truck rolled onto more dirt. It was hard to tell all the dirt apart. There were no injuries.

    They've devoted a whole web page to this, with video!!!

    Enough is enough, this is insane.

    ... And they report all of the news that is fit to be reported even if they have to make it up.

    Reminds me of the old George Carlin routine:

    I just revisited it to see if it was still posted, this time I actually watched the video.

    Has anyone ever heard anyone talk that fast?

    Boy, she didn't even try to make that any less surreal than it already was.

    You should try working with these types of yahoos. Reporters are the lowest form of life on the planet.

    I rue the day I got into television broadcasting. At least I am on the technical side of it and not the "news" side.

    Mike, if I could wave a magic wand for you then you would wake up tomorrow working on Guns and Ammo TV or Personal Defense TV.

    I mean it.
