news is hell and i can't take it anymore

I am a news junkie- CNN, CSPAN, MSNBC etc... I can't seem to stomach FOX anymore after reading a year's worth of their news coverage before the war in Iraq for my masters thesis- but that's beside the point. Anyway. I am going through serious news withdrawal. I like to wake up and drink my coffee while watching the news. But, I can't watch anything now or I might vomit from the unbelievable REWRITING of history going on- every channel, every freakin' second of the day. I mean, come on folks. Reagan was the beginning of the end with his revival/creation of radical cowboy conservatism . Like Chomsky said in an interview with Amy Goodman (I love that I can listen to Pacifica on itunes)- the most intense, aggressive people in bush's admin come from Reagan. Ugh. So, quit sugar coating everything. There are other things going on in the world right now. I could go on and on, but I won't. *Puke* is all I have to say. Another irritating thing on the news is watching OJ talk about Nicole on the anniversary of his murdering her. Give me a break- he is so guilty and got away with it b/c of his rich, football fame. Good news: My hooded sweater is now downstairs blocking!! I have to check on it soon to see how it is doing. I'll post a pic today I promise. And I leave for Maine/NYC tomorrow!! Yippie!! Yesterday Jo and I were flipping through the channels (trying not to watching crap about Reagan) and we came up with this idea for a blog entry... Jo & Wendy's Levels of Hell (from bad to worse) 1. Line Dancing 2. Karaoke 3. Being the only car on a road full of huge SUVs and Minivans 4. Repetitive news coverage focusing only on Reagan 5. Constant coverage of Bush's speeches 6. a 1984-type TV in everyone's houses where we would be forced to watch Bush's speeches and tributes to Reagan's life 24-7. 7. Water Parks (these are just totally hell) The levels of hell thing really started b/c of the commercial that came on for Noah's Ark Water Park. Tons of people in bathing suits floating around together on donuts. Totally frightening.
