I'm not going to tell you what that topic was, but I will tell you a huge story they did NOT report.

The backfiring town halls being held by GOPer Congresscritters.

But then, there's a million fucking things ABCNews is working on to keep us all informed. And all of them are in London ... for the balance of April.

According to the NYT poll, only 6% of us even give a shit about anything in London this month.

Just how many fucking hours of this *news* are we in for?

2. For accuracy, the poll said 6% are following closely
....6 percent of respondents have been following news about the wedding "very closely," and another 22 percent "somewhat closely."

I imagine some won't admit interest, especially men.

3. Have they ever talked about town halls?
Very rarely I would say.

4. The were all over them for the last two years...
...when the Tea Tories (or rather, their sponsors) were organizing their people to attend and disrupt them.

But hey, the teabaggers got a bunch of wingnuts elected in 2010, so, Mission Accomplished. Because we all know news organizations can't cover anything if PR firms aren't lobbying them to cover it. You expect them to just find things out all on their own?
