Local Morning News Makes You Stupid

I don’t know if it’s because there are a billion different features on “stuff for your kids to do!” or the standard local-news-everything-can-kill-you sensationalism or the fact that the local Fox affiliate “interviewed” the “director” of the Sarah Palin movie (and treated the “director” seriously instead of the slackjawed laughing-stock that he is), but I have come to the conclusion that we’d all be better off – and more knowledgeable – watching old Bugs Bunny cartoons instead.

(The Onion News Network’s “Today Now!” program absolutely nails the local morning news vibe, by the way.)
