  •  I want MSNBC "Prison Porn" (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    I never thought I'd beg for that.

    Really, it's going beyond the point of ridiculous. I know this is a big story, but MSNBC has gone way overboard. "BREAKING NEWS" is permanently pasted on the screen, whether there's anything breaking to talk about or not.

    The host just now asked his guest "I don't want to encourage you to speculate..." and then when on to encourage the guest to speculate. And the guest willingly did so.

    Then the following report was about the vast amount of misinformation that has been broadcast. Well yeah, you guys have been going on pretty much nonstop with every bit of rumour you can find, verified or not, so some of that misinformation broadcast has been by you.

    Weekend prison porn would be a welcome relief. Meanwhile I am turning the TV off anyway.

    Psst! Meet me at the Electoral College campus. The baggers will never find it!

    •  BREAKING NEWS: Cliff negotiations ongoing... (0+ / 0-)

      It really is a ridiculous abuse of the term as used these days. Can't wait till our screens are fully "digitized" to allow dynamic updates to different parts and layers of the screen that users have some control over. E.g. you'd be able to decide whether you want to see a ticker and if so which one.

      Of course, this will also mean the end of being able to DVR and FF recordings, since everything will be on demand and under the control of broadcasters. It will also mean on-screen ads that you can't easily block.
