2. CNN has been doing promos all morning for something called
26 hrs of terror, about that hostage sitch in Georgia last year. I think it's a special on this weekend --(i have only been watching while listening to Al Franken--

But it won't stop ! They keep interviewing everybody who was involved and going to the room they were held hostage in and so on. I don't know.

I'm intolerant I guess, cuz it's driving me nutz!!!! I have to watch the cnn all week for my job, and ...

well, TGIF!

4. Remember how they ignored the 2002 campaigns because of constant "sniper"

coverage for months?

I always distrust the motives of corporate media when they let serious issues of national consequence for our daily lives be obscured by hyped up events of limited interest or effect.

3. Terror is the most overused term in the country
Woman kidnapped - terror. 50 people killed in an explosion - terror. Traffic backed up on I-95 - terror. Too much spam in my inbox - terror.

The word has no meaning anymore. Kind of like using the words integrity and congress or honesty and president in the same sentence.
