Network

Friday AMC showed the brilliant 1976 film Network. Its been years since I saw it for the first time. I can't believe how prophetic a story it was. Everything the character Howard Beale warns us about mirrors what the FOX network has become, and all this a decade before its creation.

Now, now, you're just not used to "fair and balanced" news. Unlike the other channels, Fox gives both sides of the situation. They show both Brittany and Oprah.

Only thing worse than CNN is FOX noise.

CNN Airport is the worst. Hands down, the worst. Why? Because you can't escape it.
