No news isn't really good news

Posted By on Wed, Apr 2, 2008 at 11:04 AM

Well, it’s pretty pathetic when you watch ABC World News at 5:30, and then have to watch BBC News at 10:30 on AETN, just so you can see what’s been left out, or been glossed over.

I’m not singling out ABC, though they have the hubris to still have “World” in their title, even though they give the rest of the world short shrift. The other networks are just as bad.

Too bad we don’t have some sort of version of BBC News for local news!

More news, less inane giggling!

  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
  • Lynchings hidden in the history of the Hot Springs Confederate monument

    Hot Springs twice erupted into the kind of violence that has its roots in the issues left unresolved by the Civil War, and both times, it happened right where that monument to Confederate soldiers stands today.
