Back to you, Tits McGee

The strain of a sagging economy is written all over the faces of Dallas-Fort Worth's local news anchors. People are losing their jobs and my guess would be that viewership is steadily slipping away, lost to Nancy Grace, Anderson Cooper, and the whole 24hr news cycle.

So the local news station, one of the last bastions of honorable televised reporting, must either re-invent itself or attempt to compete with the glitz, sleaze, and utter vacuity that is modern cable news. Watch this crap-tastic broadcast from DFW's independent CW33 titled, "The Popularity of Breasts" and tell me where you think we're headed.

 
Jesus H. Christ. That poor, poor news team. They almost appear to be under duress, like the News Director has a shotgun trained on them. I've seen this five times and still can't believe it's real.

From "My Humps" playing over the open to the final "more breasts this way" drive to their website, this is the most stupefying news segment I've ever witnessed. Idiocracy has arrived, at least in Dallas, TX. I can't decide whether to protest or just say f*#k it and head to the Tilted Kilt.

The only good thing about this piece is the line, "Since the beginning of time, there have been prehistoric beasts, the battle for survival and breasts." That is now the first sentence of my novel.
