CNN = Crappy News Network?
CNN.com recently updated their home page's format to make room for their Pipeline live video thing, and their new layout now maintains a list of 12-13 "latest news" headlines adjacent to the lead story photo. Since that change, there are consistently 5-6 useless topic headlines in that chunk of prime real estate, usually including Paris Hilton, Brittney Spears, American Idol, crazy animal stories, and things you used to see as "news of the weird" or on a Fox TV video "caught on tape" show.
As we speak:
Dashcam shows SUV flipping, rolling off road
Lawyer: 3 kids tossed in bay as sacrifice
Tape shows wife on fire, husband pouring gas
Atheist sues Catholic Church for proof of Jesus
SI.com: Jeb Bush for NFL commissioner?
Prankster finds giant hamster wheel in his room
There was one yesterday about a dog too fat to walk from being fed donuts and beer. Ha ha, cruelty is so funny that I don't care anymore about Iraq, NSA spying, fencing the border, or melting glaciers.
I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired.
