What's in the News? Crap...All crap.

When did network TV get their priorities so screwed up? Why do we need a two part interview with the "Runaway Bride"? What could that bug-eyed twat have to offer that would make any difference in the real world? Do people really care?
Network TV has sunken to new lows...Meet Your New Mommy. WTF? I thought buxom chicks eating bugs and puking on Fear Factor was enough but I guess the powers-that-be think otherwise. It's sad when the folks that made Jerry Springer famous decide what the average Joe wants. At least I have my soaps still....They get more and more like porn every day.

........and the thing that gets me about the Runaway Bride is that she is suddenly a half a million dollars richer! There is nothing I could do that would be interesting enough for ANYBODY to offer me a half a million dollars to tell about it! That biotch is going to have to make up a load of crap just to make it half interesting....and at some point she has to dump that boyfriend.....cause all us girls know she only left to get away from him anyway! You know it was some damn man that gave her the half-mil!

So, Zeke, here's my question, since you are 'in the biz', as they say... I personally believe that a big part of the reason we continue to see such colossal bullshit in the media (not just 'news' coverage like this, but tv/radio in general) is tied to the ratings system. I'm curious to hear what sort of pressure you perceive/receive with regards to ratings, or have over the years, anyway? (Don't want to put you on the spot...)

I guess it just seems really obvious to me (and most everyone, I think, OUTSIDE of Los Angeles county, CA) that the shows with the highest ratings aren't necessarily the ones to emulate / copy / drive into the ground... Sometimes they just suck the least.

Thank you for indulging my rant / questions... Keep up the good work - I can't tell you how refreshing it is to hear a DJ just being themselves and digging good music.

TV sucks for the same reason everything else vomited forth by the mass media sucks: the folks who make the decisions are clueless, braindead, cocaine-tweezed rug munchers.

You've got more talent than any ten of 'em put together. Actually, make that about fifty.

Can we sue the "reality" TV clowns for false advertizing? Lawyers oughta be good for something (since there's far too many of them these days) and that crap has no resemblance to reality whatsoever.

Oh, and I do NOT want to be a Hilton.

At. All.

I would, however, like to have check-writing privledges on their accounts.
