Action Cool News!, News

John Gibson is an idiot.

This is what I hear on the afternoon news, right before a commercial break:

"Child Welfare Services paid another visit to Brittney Spears's residence yesterday. Why? It had something to do with her baby. (More on this after the break, yadda yadda yadda...)"

No shit. Really? Thought they were there to repave the driveway or walk the dogs. Ah well, I suppose it's a good thing at least that they weren't there for Brittney, herself... *rolls eyes*

In less humorous news news, Shep gets on his program, bitching about how there's evidence that those "Mobile WMD Research Labs" were bullshit months and months before anyone else ever found out. Whether or not they were bullshit wasn't the point - everyone knows they didn't have anything to do with biological weapons now, but the question was when, the evidence now pointing that the White House knew this long ago and hid it, still claiming them to be a threat months and months after the report came out. He gave the exact dates, when the report was written, and a few times much later when Cheney kept talking about them and calling them a threat.

Three hours later, as if no one still remembered that, Brit Hume gets his stuffy ass on the air. Whereas Shepard Smith gets a little emotional and his style of reporting is more like an informal conversation with his audience, Brit's the old guy that sits there and lectures you without seeming interested in the topic at hand. He starts blathering about how "two respected news organizations" had problems with that and were reporting stories about how apparently they were accusing the White House of labeling these alleged documents "secret" and hiding them away. There wasn't much emotion in his voice, but just the faintes hint of superiority, as if whatever so-called decent channels made these idle accusations had no idea what they were talking about.

It's times like these when I need a good "SMACK!!!" icon to represent my mighty Backhand of Justice. (Dumbass.)
