I have lived in five major cities and I used to travel 35-40 weeks a year for business and I must say that in every city on every station, the local news sucks so bad it makes you want to vomit. They all are horrible, horrible pieces of journalistic crap. I’m so tired of these “create your own news stories” that these idiots run every other day. “The 10 most dangerous intersections in Detroit” “The Dirtiest Restaurants in St. Louis”, blah, blah, blah.
What ever happened to reporting the F-ing news? Just tell me what happened, tell me what is going on in this city and shut up. Quit running three minute pieces on animal abuse, and barely mentioning five innocent inner-city youths who got blown away when a drive-by went wrong. Have some godamn priorities.
Also, stop running five-second promos at 6:30 like “something every mother should hear about the safety of your child” to scare people into watching your pathetic newscast and then ending the newscast by saying something obvious like “every child needs oxygen or they will die, Good night”. Spare me you sick bastards.
Does your local news suck? If it does, what is the alternative? The internet? NPR? National News? PBS? Newspapers? Somebody vent with me!!!
The power of accurate observation is frequently called cynicism by those who don’t have it.
