What It Used to Be Was News

I suppose I’m dating myself. So be it. There was a time each day when the TV stations transmitted actual, real news. As times have gone by, not so much.

We get ten minutes of weather, ten minutes of sports and ten minutes of propaganda. Somewhere in there, we get a minute or so of traffic.

Somehow, they get away with calling that news. Now that is just crazy nuts.

Oh! And by the way. Ten minutes of really stupid advertising is distributed through it all. Sometimes, if were lucky, we actually get two or three minutes of news out of 30 minutes of what they call news.

In a way, this just might say more about the viewers than the NEWS programing. I’ll let you judge.
