The 10:00 news teaser the other night for channel 5 was something to this effect:
PUFFED UP NEWSGUY: "A local town declares a state of emergency as 72 people get sick from drinking water. We'll show you where at 10:00."
WHAT? You're so desperate to get people to tune into your 10 pm newscast that you would jeopardize people's health? What if I lived in that town and was drinking a tall glass of tap water at that very moment? I'd have to wait until 10 FREAKIN' O'Clock to know if it's my town - that is, if the explosive diarrhea didn't get to me first!
This is why I hate TV news - any kind of it. Just plain annoying. Power to the presses!
