I hate the local news in LA. I think it is among the worst in the country, and I’ve seen lots local news in places like Lima, Ohio. Yesterday I hated it even more because not once but twice I had to go diving for my remote as they began to, without warning, give results from that day’s Olympic events which had not yet aired. Now I realize I was watching ABC and the Olympics are on NBC and why would ABC want be watching another network, but really?
As of 3 minutes ago, I also hate the LA Times, at least online. As I enjoyed a bowl of Fiber One (try it, it’s actually pretty good!) and visited various news sites this morning, I went to latimes.com and was alerted, through the headline and a large color photo, of the recent women’s gymnastics results. Granted it must be a slow news day, since cnn.com’s main story was a re-telling of how John McCain became a POW. Sorry that whole Hurricane Fay thing didn’t pan out, newsfolk; looks like you’re struggling a bit to find something to talk about today.
