news sources

when I learnd online that the state court finally declard Franken winner of last year's election I made the mistake of turning on CNN. on what used to be a news show there was nothing but nonstop Jackson trivia. I had to go back to the computer to get news feeds of Franken's longcoming victory speech.

& did anyone catch yesterday's White House reception for gay leaders on network news shows? nope. no time on a half hour program when half of it is devotd to discussion of pills & wills.

all 3 network morning news shows today (tues) began with Jackson. one wd expect that from "Entertainment Tonite" & its clones but the morning shows? esp when we've got Franken & Sanford & those naughty Fort Worth cops beating gay folk & a teenager surviving a plane crash.

enuf with all this MJ stuff....

I know. I've pretty much given up on network news, although love David Muir and will watch him forever and ever. ABC would do well to put him in the driver's seat and get rid of the guy who does the network news now. Can't even recall his name, charles sonething? I've also stopped buy the New York Times everyday since they raised it to $2.00.
