Lying Media Bastards

World News Yesterday

As a response to the death of ABC News anchor Peter Jennings, I decided to link to the song “Rocked By Rape”, a song that uses samples of Jennings’ more bizarre news phrases over the years.

Until I realized that “Rocked By Rape” does not have samples from Peter Jennings, it has samples from Dan Rather.

Which reminded me that I’ve always gotten the three network news anchors confused–three serious-looking white guys with brown/gray hair–, until I realized that Dan Rather was the one with the speech impediment.

Did I say Dan Rather? I meant Tom Brokaw.


Peter Jennings, he will be missed by all.

  1. This is the best post regarding this celebrity’s passing I’ve read thus far.

  2. I didn’t know there was any difference between the newcasters! Did you ever read: “Into the Buzzsaw” ed borjesson Basically it’s a bunch of Bourgeoisie investigative news reporters explaining how they were censored by the “free media.” The thesis is good, although I wasn’t surprised by the findings as many folks would be.

    The thesis is this: The media ain’t liberal (in a democrat) sense and it ain’t conservative (in a republican) sene; instead, it’s a market controlled commodity geared toward generating readers and viewers. So basically, if OJ gets viewers, then we ignore real news for ratings.

    I’m off, I think there’s a story on about girls missing in aruba…say, isn’t there a war going on?
