NBC SUCKS

Post by GTP »

I know I'm just an out-dated FOG with old opinions and am not in any desired political or merchandising demographic but something NBC did today just stikes me as all wrong.

Since going into forced retirement early this year, I get up each day to "fast" walk my three miles. I eat breakfast and watch TV before going on my walk. Normally, I watch the "Today" show to get a little news and weather information. I turned off of that show this morning--

They advertised they were going to have Jane Fonda on live later in the morning to talk about her new movie or project or whatever. I would have turned it off anyway because she was going to be on but to have her on the show on the anniversary of D-Day just strikes me as absolutely wrong. The "powers that be" at NBC either don't know the significance of the day and her past actions, feel like that's old news and not worthy of consideration now or did this on purpose and, if questioned, would most likely be shocked it bothered someone and would justify her being on the show.

Maybe I'm wrong but to have a traitor on their show on the anniversary of a day when thousands of service members lost their lives is, again in my opinon, just wrong.

All the "major" networks suck.

I seriously doubt any of the wonks at The Today Show even were aware it was the D-Day Anniversary. Or Traitor Bitch Cunt's activities in Viet Nam. Last time I was subjected to that show I wanted to kill everyone else in the dentist's reception area for actually paying attention and discussing their blather.

All of them, and a whole lot of other dunderheads, simply cannot, and do not, grasp the concept that they are only able to spout their shallow inanities because hundreds of thousands of US military have died fighting to preserve the nation and system that allows them to preen themselves and believe in their precious egos, freely criticizing and looking down on all the 'little people'.

They make me physically ill.

GTP,
It shows they are struggling that they have to go all the way back with a story about one of their very old commie buddies (Fuckfacefonda) especially since the Dems lost in Wisconsin. They need old scumbag heroines to make themselves feel good. This is like a slight of hand to make you focus on Jane & not one of their scumbags of today.

RangerX,

I never go to a waiting room to be at the mercy of their own programing. I always bring my own radio/cassete player, headphones & puzzlebook for my own sanity. I say fuck 'em all - I ain't letting them in to fuck up my day.

Think about this instead how Michele put down their good buddy Oprah by saying something degrading about her weight who endorsed her husband in 2008.
Oprah is now losing control of her own network & there is gossip about why, that is because her viewers turned their backs on Oprah after learning she heself was not as fair as she talked about all these years.

I read that Rachel Maddow (of a NBC affilate) said, "Our ratings improve if we do not mention the elections." Duh.

It was a story about that America Lacks Talent contestant that lied about his service on national TV.

But yeah, you should be surfing porn instead of news sites on the government's dime.

The Clinton News Network(CNN) in May suffered its worst month for ratings in nearly 20 years, according to Nielsen figures, and has lost 50 percent of its audience in the past 12 months.

The cable network pioneered 24-hour news in the 1980s and for years was the top-rated news channel, but it has lost audience to Fox News and MSNBC in recent years and now lags both competitors in attracting viewers.

CNN’s average audience in May fell to 388,000, with only 113,000 in the 25-54 age bracket that advertisers covet. Fox’s average was 1.65 million, and MSNBC’s was 658,000.

CNN anchor Anderson Cooper has lost a quarter of his viewers in the past 12 months, and ratings for Wolf Blitzer’s two-hour “Situation Room” are down by more than half.

Couldn't have anything to do with it's liberal news bias. Perhaps folks are getting tired of the same ole pitch
