Why I Hate the Media, Part Umpty-Million
Because they are stupid as shit.
Two unfinished wars, the greatest economic cratering in generations, a climate change crisis of apocalyptic proportions, a government completely broken and near bankrupt because of the idiocy of the last eight years of W, major manufacturing industries near collapse, and I don't know what all else near the breaking point. A major media figure scores a one-on-one interview with the President-Elect, the nation's first black President – and he wastes his time asking him stupid shit like this.
Fuck you, Brokaw. I used to think you had some kind of respectability or credibility, but you're just another "news" asshole.
I wonder if he managed to slip in a question about what kind of dog the Obama family is considering. Probably.
And then this is how Yahoo! frames it. Tiny print "economy 'to get worse'" with big ass print about a non-existent "issue," and Obama's "addiction."
You could take 90% of the media and drop them in the ocean and I'd shed not a tear.
