There will not be film at 11. Shuddup and take your Soma. It's a freaking cable network, wallpaper for the boob tube. If you don't like it, change the channel.

Stop the press, huh? Sounds like a pretty good idea.

Funny how not that long ago that would have been the cry of the anti-intellectual, and now it is the cry of those who feel no further need for centralized media.

I was very slow following your rotation of the phrase -- too many years of this, I guess.

"wallpaper for the boob tube"

Your gift for the felicitous turn of phrase is showing again.

I'm stealing, and filing for the TM on that one :-)

Granted it wasn't a master stroke to make Douglas Adams blink, but it seemed opportune :-)

It worked.

I might have tried it in one step, that "Stop The Presses" had gone from being a blazon for breaking news to a bedraggled banner for news irretrievably broken

While FOX has presented a few real klunkers, randomly pick 100 reports from FOX and 100 from any other cable network, and check them all for accuracy. Fox will win the accuracy test by more than 30%.

Those who say FOX viewers are uninformed fail to say in comparison to whom.
