This morning the Today Show led off with a 2 segment piece about the Runaway Bride.
Why didn’t they lead off with real news. One of the Abu Ghraib torturers got sentenced. Did they do an investigation about whether or not the abuse has continued?
Or, how about this, 2 years ago yesterday, President Bush landed on an aircraft carier and declared Mission Accomplished. Shoot, that did not even make the teasers for the rest of the show. How about nearly 1600 soldiers have been killed since the mission was accomplished? How about the fact that terrorism has become more prevelant since the mission was accomplished? How about al-Quadia now has a breeding ground in Iraq? How about the nearly 100,000 Iraqis killed? How about the daily suidice bombings? Hmmmm??? Why aren’t these in the first segment?
I check other morning news programs, and discoverd they all were covering the Runaway Bride. Who cares about that? Read People if you want that dreck. If you claim to be a news program, cover the NEWS.
