Damn how I hate what the media has become. CBS This morning is

doing a story about the October surprise. They talked about the Iran hostage crisis. They explained the break down in negotiations between Iran and Carter. What they failed to mention is why negotiations broke down. Nothing about the republicans committing treason by counter negotiating with Iran to benefit Regan. Not to mention the story they did about most people now get the news from social media and how ultra partisan cable news has become. No mention of Fox news and RW hate radio. Again Everybody does it. The best was the interviews with the God chose trump to be president couple and the coal miners daughter nursing student who knows people who wore a mask etc. and still got covid get their news from Facebook and the like.

1. ABC's new show at the time "Nightline" did a ton of damage, too pounding every

day about the hostage crisis never having any focus on all the good President Carter did.

Oh and yeah the treason. I guess that's no biggie.

7. Charles Gibson

made me so mad I couldn’t see straight for days ... he culled all of his “experts” from the American Enterprise Org and the Heritage Foundation ...

He once had Studs Terkel on and he (Gibson) was just hateful to him. Said that Terkel’s opinion did not matter because “he had always been a lefty” and no one should pay attention to him.

8. Turn that noise off forever.

My own life is much better without it.

The television in our house plays Netflix and DVDs. That's pretty much all it does. No cable, no satellite, no broadcast, and maybe best of all, no commercials!

I quit television news and opinion shortly after 9-11-2001. The repetition and hyperbole got to me.

My wife and I quit traditional television entirely more than a decade ago. We read all our news and opinion.

It's a funny thing, once you've quit traditional television for awhile it becomes intolerable.

Television feeds our anxieties to sell us shit we wouldn't ordinarily buy; everything from politicians to pharmaceuticals.

Television made Trump. Television needs to die.

11. I usually like CBS this morning Sunday.

They do good human interest stories and nature stuff, but when they do political stories they lose me.
