CNN and Fox News are stupid

I've been on hiatus for the last month as you may or may not have noticed. The truth is after four years of doing this blog I needed a little bit of a break. And since I'm my own editor, publisher and editorial assistant, I decided what the heck.  For those of you following me on Twitter and Facebook, you've likely seen that I haven't been completely radio silent. I basked in the excitement that is the forthcoming cinematic wonderment that is Raging Bull 2 and the return of Popeye to the big screen.

But my new favorite thing (outside of Nikki Finke being unable to beat out Celebuzz in the category of entertainment journalism at the LA Press Club awards) is the monumental gaffe at CNN and Fox News (among others) for the whole Obamacare/Supreme Court Ruling.

They say a picture is worth 1000 words.  If that's the case, then a video is worth 1000 cringes?  Laughs?   Questions about editorial oversight?

Here's all the fun as it happened.

"We're doing the best that we can," says one anchor at one point, something which obviously doesn't include learning the facts before reporting on them.

Good to see you back. Thought finke won. Everybody always wants to part two rbull. It never goes anywhere because it always comes out lame.

When I have enough money to hire an assistant or two, I'm going to hire you to oversee the assistants. You're fucking brilliant and I can't figure out why no one has given you a job!
