Lessons from CNN and Fox News

Posted in Celebrities, News, Politics at 2:52 pm by Captain Morgan

I stayed up until way too late last night watching CNN and Fox News, and I learned a few things.

1. Nancy Grace is the funniest fake newscaster since Jon Stewart. What, oh she's serious? Oh well. She's still funny as heck!

2. While I may agree with some of Bill O'Reilly's politics, he's kind of mean. Plus he wears more makeup than RuPaul. 

3. Anderson Cooper is cool, but he doesn't do much. Mostly he repeats whatever everyone else says.

4. Between what's going on in the main screen, and reading the ticker on the bottom, you have to be an expert multi-tasker in order to fully get the news.

5. We need 10 people to communicate 1 story to us.

6. Sometimes, in an effort to be "fair and balanced", the news is boring.

    Hey captain. You are a very good writer. These lines are creative. I especially love this one…While I may agree with some of Bill O’Reilly’s politics, he’s kind of mean. Plus he wears more makeup than RuPaul.
