One of the most depressing activities one can do is flip on the morning news. You will be innocently sipping your fresh, dad-made coffee on your couch, with a fire flickering in the background, and kitties snuggled on you happy as can be.
Then you turn on the TV:
-Missing girl’s prosthetic leg found in forest
-Notre Dame student dies in freak tower toppling over accident
-American mauled to death by a jaguar in Belize
CURSE YOU TODAY SHOW! I tune in to see dancing cats, the best halloween costume ideas, and Al Roker’s smiling face–not tragic news!
It seriously makes me sick to my stomach. I want to be informed about what is going on in the world but lately the only form of news that I can stand comes in the form of humor.
Steven Colbert and Jon Stewart have long been my heroes, but at this point they are my sole way of getting news. I realize that it is incredibly biased through my own personal viewpoint–i.e. democratic and utterly disgusted with the notion of a Sarah Palin TV show on TLC—
Seriously click it, I just threw up in my mouth a little bit. Considering boycotting TLC when that airs, even if they do show documentaries about pregnant 70 year olds..
Anyways, Colbert is the love of my live for so many reasons but a large one is his ability to make fun of Glenn Beck. Not that Beck makes it so difficult.
