labels are important

Now that Terri Schiavo and the pope are dead and Prince Charles and his favorite nag are wed, CNN Headline News can get back to covering REAL stories.

Like almost four hours of non-stop coverage of a silver Honda in New Jersey containing a distressed and unknown man who, after earlier shooting (fortunately not life-threatening) the father of his child's mother held that young child and the child's mother hostage while still armed, and later released them without further violence.

The mainstream media has completely lost its relevance and its mind. Our primary check on government excess is completely non-functional. This is the best they can do to sift through events in our turbulent time and present us with the crucial bits of information with which to build a reality-based worldview?

I hope they are proud.

But, remember, they are journalists. I'm a mere blogger...
