Sharon and I watched “Fox & Friends” this morning while we scoured the web for stories to post to our news blog, Watcher Magazine. The perky morning news trio handed off to the entertainment guy, Bill McCuddy, who proceeded to introduce a special guest weather announcer–a young blonde woman who’d just been named the Penthouse Pet of the Year.
It’s not that Sharon and I buy everything that spews from our television, even from “fair and balanced” Fox. We’re fully aware that Mr. Murdoch has an agenda, just like the groups behind the other networks.
Still, featuring a porn starlet–on a Sunday morning!–on what purports to be a serious news operation is just more proof that what passes for “journalism” on TV is just eye candy to distract us from what’s really happening.
