Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

My rant about our horrible local television news - I just posted this

on my local CBS affiliate's Facebook page:

I knew there was a good reason I had stopped watching your channel during the invasion and occupation of Iraq in 2003. I happened to have my TV tuned to your local news tonight at 11 p.m. and was flabbergasted to see your reporters presenting the presidential race as essentiallly still too close to call. What exactly are you smoking? Romney leads in only 1 battleground state, according to the latest polls. His surrogates (Rove, et. al.) have already started assigning blame for his coming defeat. So to present the race as still too close to call means you haven't changed one iota from 2003. You all are liars, plain and simple. Obama is headed toward a landslide on Tuesday and his eventual triumph will leave Angelenos with even less reason to watch your pathetic drivel.

I usually don't watch local news because it is so dreadful. Happened to leave it on CBS when the Mentalist ended at 11 p.m. Thank God for DU (and DailyKos) is all I can say.

2. Thanks. I call it a 'rant' when I don't even catch my own typos before posting. FB won't

 

allow me to edit my post after the fact, but I have corrected a couple of the egregious typos here.

CBS' reporters just blithely trot this stuff out, as though the audience has no clue. I had already taken their measure back in 2003, so only happened to see this report by accident tonight.
