That is my mantra. I am done with TV news, I have no idea how they even look themselves in the mirror, for all the flipping and flopping....
Since the election, I want to smack: Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, MSNBC for putting Greta VanSustern on there (UGH PLEASE), everyone on the TODAY show. Shit, Brian Williams is actually relief from the madness.
I have been reading online news a lot more - good stuff, not Fake News - and also watching some things on YouTube, like good old Olbermann.
But there is so much out there, and the noise is deafening. The only cable network I can stand to watch any more is TCM. Yes, I have my favorite shows (Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Homeland, Shameless) - but since they aren't on all year round, I have no need of regular TV.
A friend says, it's an escape! What am I escaping from? Stupidity? Horrible shit? That's on TV. All over the place. It's more of an escape to turn the thing off.
I wish I could convince the rest of Amurrika that regular TV is half the problem. Maybe more.
