Why is DU filled with these frivolous news stories
Too many post about Egypt and not enough Charlie Sheen with Porn Stars stories for my taste. Get it together people, how is this site going to be taken seriously?

4. Just tune to FOX, CNN, or MSNBC.
I saw lots of hard news this morning, including stories on:

fewer Girl Scout cookie flavors
the dirtiest hotels in America
American Idol results
lottery winners in Canada
Charlie Sheen
Tiger Woods dropped the "F" bomb on the golf course.

12. I was so pissed off last night.
I came home from work and as always I put on the TV. It was tuned to CNN (or should it be called entertainment tonight?) and they were talking about sarah's comments on Obama speech. I immediately switched to MSNBC and what do you think they were talking about? the same shit. sarah palin

WHY OH WHY do we need to hear HER opinion. Needless to say I tuned out and watched a movie I had recorded. I just can't stand it anymore. The stupidity of it all has really got me down. They might as well interview Bozo the Clown.

and yeah,
Charlie Sheen
the Kardashians
bristol palin
tracy morgan
taco bell
woman who fell into fountain

UTTER STUPIDITY
