FOX keeps repeating that crane accident
in NYC is reminiscent of 9/11 because there is so much smoke. The anchorbabe must have said it 15 times...

What's her point? Oh I get it...it's New York, it's a dust cloud, it's sensational!

...and maybe it's terrorism...

Meanwhile, back at the ranch...the anchor just didn't seem to understand how a crane structure could possible do this much damage...to that I can only say:

Force = Mass x Acceleration

This coverage is so insipid it's beyond belief....has to be seen to be believed.

3. Actually, I was watching FOX because...
they were the only statiion covering the Atlanta Tornadoes LIVE. Even CNN and the Weather Channel were off on other subjects or in commercial.

I apologize for watching FOX...may I stay at DU? PRetty Please?

2. I'll let you watch it for me.
The part about the anchor's cluelessness regarding the destruction is all too indicative of so much that is wrong with network news.

8. I heard about it on the radio 4:00pm news complete with sound effects,
the airhead reporter screaming at the top of his lungs. It's entertainment time.
