Reading lessismore's recent post about unplugging from social media, I remembered this episode from Conan illustrating my disdain for two things: local news media and fb...
There should be some actual reporting in local news, but there is not. It's almost like one guy wrote a crap story and sold it to a bunch of networks to get his dog website some traffic. I don't want to sound paranoid, but I can hardly believe this was an accident -- however funny and potentially embarrassing.
For the first 5 or 6 years that we lived in Denver we noticed that no evening news broadcast was complete without a "Columbine" story and a dog story. The Columbine thing has finally died out, but the dog material just keeps on giving...even after a local anchor was bitten on the face while oochie cooing a traumatized dog up close.
