    Yep, that’s what it sounded like to me when I was a kid, and now that I am grown I see that is all it is now as well.

    News on TV is either all Bad News or all Bullshit News.

    And what is worse: talk to people old enough to remember the Glory Days of Broadcast TV and (even from progressives who should know better) you’ll hear that it was all Murrow taking on McCarthy and Cronkite having had enough of Viet Nam. The 99.44% that was propagandistic b.s. went down the memory hole.
