Why wouldn’t details of his meal on the way back be anything other than “Breaking News” on Fox? The American public’s addiction to hype and general ignorance is their bread and butter.

Although to be fair, what other cable news outlet is running anything OTHER than JonBenet all day and all night, these days? It’s taken over cable news. They can’t be bothered with starving children in the world, or 12 year old children who are forceably conscripted into the military to fight in war, as they are in the Congo. No, the JonBenet case is the only thing that is really going on in the world. If you want to see how far down CNN has gone, just turn it on at any random time of the day today, and you’ll have your answer.

I have to really thank blogs such as this one, as well as Salon.com, and programs such as “Democracy Now” with Amy Goodman, who have been reliable in helping me to appreciate the volume of other important news going on in the world.
