I know, complain, complain, complain. Me so bad.
What's distressing is that to get actual NEWS, you pretty much have to go outside the US. I find even the BBC's news coverage of our activities to be more accurate that what I get from the likes of CNN or MSNBC. And while I like Fox's "We report, you decide" idea, the implementation leaves a lot to be desired. Stories that treat werewolves as real phenomena have to make one question their acquaintance with the truth, which (silly me) was what I thought the point of the news WAS.

Used to be there were actual STANDARDS to news reporting. Now it seems like everyone is trying to 'out National Enquirer' the other.
