Faux-News In-Depth reporting of Hulk Hogan..Submitted by ecorob on Tue, 05/27/2008 - 11:45
If this weren't so pitifully true it would be sad...it is sad! I was a Faux-News Junkie. I watched it at least 3 hours a day for 8 years...I know, I know, but I'll be OK. I swore off of them and told them so when they excluded RP from the New Hampshire debates. I have not watched 5 minutes of them since then...except for the one debate where they let Dr. Paul sit on the stage with them.
Anyway, this morning my curiosity got the best of me and I switched it over just to see what they were reporting. For several minutes they played a tape of Hulk Hogan's wife talking to their son and crying about an impending lawsuit that the son is involved in about a car crash that left another seriously injured.
This is news? No, this is the continued "dumbing down" of America. This is what we here at the DP are fighting against.
So please, my point is this, lets stay focused on the issues here, OK? Let's don't "dumb down" the DP. I believe anything we talk about here concerning our, and other's, Civil Liberties is relevent. Anything relating to our values...gold/silver standard, State's issues, world issues, rallying points, and on and on are truly relevent to what we believe in and are fighting for.
Let's keep it "real" here at the DP!
