Surprise, Surprise….

It turns out that no charges will be filed against the guy who confessed to killing JonBenet Ramsey, because his DNA isn’t a match.

I’m shocked. Shocked, I tell you.

You mean that the mainstream media filled every waking minute with speculation and play-by-play coverage of this fuck-knuckle’s extradition, conveniently bumping stories like Bush’s warrantless wiretapping program being declared illegal and unconstitutional….and it turns out that there actually was NO FUCKING STORY AT ALL???

Well, gosh. Color me surprised.

…of course, they’ll get away with it. Again.

In related news, CNN will mark the 5th anniversary of 9/11 by replaying their original coverage of the attacks.

Excuse me….that’s not NEWS. That’s self-congratulatory journalistic masturbation….and, of course, “remember why we’re fighting the War On Terra” PROPAGANDA.

The state of this country makes me fucking sick.

    WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT TO WATCH THAT AGAIN?!?!

    You’d have to tie me DOWN and peel my eyes open, and I’d still try not to watch. My god.

    Oh god. I feel like vomiting, just having brief flashes of remembering what it was like watching that the first time.

    THE FUCK? That’s unbelievably crass and horrifying.

  3. Hmmmm…you know, you’d think people might get a clue that there’s a reason it’s “innocent until proven guilty”.

    One wonders just how long the media will attempt to milk coverage of the “guy who was just a psycho” so they can keep putting up pictures of JonBenet…

    As for CNN, that is truly the epitome of all that is wrong with the media estate.

    D.

  4. What a cheap-ass way of filling the time. I don’t know if that’s offensive more because it is lazy or because no person in their right mind wants to live thorugh that minute-by-minute experience again. Not the people who were stuck at home waiting on word from loved ones down at Ground Zero, for sure. Maybe the people who hate America and can watch their greatest accomplishment in the murder of innocent people would enjoy the recap, take a day off and remember the glory days.

    how about some REAL journalism where they spend the day revealing how far we’ve come to catching bin Laden or listing the best excuses this administration has for not coming close? how about a story on why we’ve spent trillions on Iraq and Afghanistan with no hope of making the world a better, safer place for anyone?

    Asstrouts.

  5. Oh, but it isn’t anymore. I had a post all in mind about how people in this country have forgotten that until someone has had a trial and been convicted they’re not guilty of a crime. But then I realized that I’d just be preaching at the majority of the choir and decided that it wasn’t worth my time.

    …all of which was in response to hearing the district attorney in New Orleans bitching about how a judge was going to be releasing dangerous felons onto the street, because they’d not had a trial or even seen a lawyer a year after they’d been arrested…

    Presumption of innocence guilt…

  6. I saw a commercial on CNN over the weekend in which they proudly announced that they would be rebroadcasting that entire day. At first I thought I had heard wrong but the next day I saw it again.

    It’s good to hear I’m not the only one that thought it to be in very poor taste.

  7. That guy (the New Orleans DA) made me furious. Apparently, his duties as an officer of the court extend only to the prosecution of people he’s already deemed guilty and he has no obligation to the Constitutional rights of said individuals.

  8. Real journalism appears to be a thing of the past. Give it a few more years and there should be laws in place to prevent any real journalism. (Though there is already enough corporate and government control over the media that the laws really aren’t needed.)
