I'm staying at a house that actually has cable teevee, something I gave up on years ago now.
So just out of curiosity cuz of the shutdown and all, I get up at 7:30 am and turn on the news, CBS I think.
Tail end of segment about 'how it took the FBI TWO YEARS to take down Silk Road, what with it's billions of dollars worth of sales in drugs and
guns, and now apparently (trumped up charges?) a hit job request made in the name of the founder's own email, thus 'giving him away' to the FBI
that had spent TWO YEARS buying stuff on line from them. Two years, FBI, seriously? And it took a 'hit job request' to make the charges stick and
arrest this guy? Bwhwahahahahahaha.
The next segment was showing a video of that 'motorcycle gang against dad, mom and kiddies' thing that I'd heard about, vaguely, already on the
internet. Scary movie.. oooo, scary. Brave, well tuned to the moment, perfectly coiffed talking head describes for us what we're seeing, and then
announces, 'well, you've probably seen this video.... after they already showed it to us once. Now, they show it again.
I've seen enough to last me a couple more years. They call this news? They call this reporting?? Nope, it's eye candy, the nasty, crappy waxy
chocolate kind you buy for kids who don't know better at Easter time, for people in wheelchairs stuck in nursing homes in front of, for the most part
and godsavethem, what a way to spend your declining years, Fox News.
