    News. Produced by artificial intelligence. Human journalism doomed. All humans doomed. Soon.

    I’d make a witty reply, but I’m busy trying to figure out what line to use on my next tweet about Biden’s dogs as a current employee of NBC who worked for the Daily Caller before I landed in the MSM swamp.

    If it’s now to the point where we believe that nothing is true anymore, that nothing is reliable, then Fox Fake “News” and the MAGA/Q rabble have indeed succeeded.

    It seems like a lot of the news is that somebody who’s famous for being famous likes to show her bare body in public.

    “We lead with the Mayor, he said …”

    Love it when they think they have to put the subject and pronoun together in the sentence. Not sure where this started but all the local channels are saying it that way. “We lead with the Mayor stating…”

    Oh, don’t get me started with “We’ll continue on with our next story…”

    It’s either continue, or go on, not continue on.

    What, no mention of Fox Trash News! Fox News must no longer be news and thus the world must be a better place.

    Hmm, Like a bad Chinese to English translation.

    Putting bolt to hole, making nut on, done.

    Asian languages don’t have all the little bits of European language, maybe the Chinese have taken over the world and no one realizes?

    I really miss the past where news was only on TV and Radio a few times a day unless something really important was happening.. Back then there were only a few hours in a day for news so they only covered important news. There were no pundits because they didn’t have the time for them and journalism back then thought pundits did not belong on a News broadcast.

    Since kids aren’t learning how to speak properly and since our attention spans are about as long as a horsefly’s, this seems like a logical development

    I wonder if anyone’s done a study on what percentage of each newscast is devoted to useless, uninformative sociobabble.

    “And we go now to our correspondent on the ground in East Palestine, Ohio, Gloria Excelsis. Gloria?”

    “Thank you, Walter. It’s been a sad, rainy day here in East Palestine, site of …. [insert actual news here] But we’ll have continuing coverage of this as the story unfolds. Back to you, Walter.”

    “Thank you, Gloria. XBC’s Gloria Excelsis in East Palestine, Ohio. In other breaking news ….”

     Aside: Does anyone ever cover unbroken news any more?

    I wonder what the next step is for human evolution now that all forms of media have figured out the best way to guide our actions is to keep us in a constant state of fear and anger…

    Reminds me of an old Lampoon parody of Henry Luce, founder of Time magazine, who always wrote in an inverted style.

    “Backwards ran sentences until reeled the mind. Where all this ends, knows God.”

    Most of the commentators here missing the point of the comic. News consultants banning verbs 20 years ago. Having reporters speaking in present tense phrases. Only gerunds being used. Hurting my ears.
