    Reminds me of ………

    Invasion of the Body Snatchers (movie)?

    Speed Trap (short story)?

    Sorry, I can’t pin it down just yet. It is nightmarish, however.

    I’m trying to tell, is this a shot at someone like Tucker specifically, or cable news/talk in general

    OK. Not being a CNN viewer, I’m intrigued who the hell this person is/supposed to be ?

    You should always have multiple news sources A) for the point of view and B) because not every news source follows every story.What I find worse than “cable news” is the news aggregators such as Facebook and Yahoo to name just two. They don’t create content but use algorithms to feed you news they think you want to see. They group you in with like minded people and then spoon feed you pablum. Unfortunately we see the result.

    Large tata’s, even more so partly exposed, have that effect on me.

    So a guy is smart enough to create a plan to make the world a better place, yet he’s dumb enough to not pluck a really long eyebrow hair that everyone is more focused on than what the heck he is saying. Yep, that sounds about right.

    Text-minded kids who avoid having to actually SPEAK to someone on their phone. Just have him hold the phone up next to the TV speaker and look away from the screen. Rocket science, not.

    Andy Rooney: “I don’t know what to do. I try to look nice. I comb my hair. I tie my tie. I put on a jacket. But I draw the line when it comes to trimming my eyebrows. You work with what you got.”

    Is this “Body Shaming”? Someone may need to be cancelled.

    The good news is they won’t be mesmerized by the eyebrows for too long – they’ll have to break away for a commercial soon.

    It is interesting what cable news concentrates on.

    CNN is still analyzing the riot and talking about impeachment.

    FOX is lamenting how many Republicans have lost Twitter followers and crying how they have been victimized yet again.

    Must be a slow time in the head of Mr Miller. Or this might be a filler he kept, to give himself a break.

    Could it be the newsperson is one of Wiley’s bears?

    Is it a metaphor for the fly on Pence’s head that transfixed the world and no one knows what he was saying?

    I suppose this is sort of what happens when mother nature gives you a wardrobe malfunction. Good thing he didn’t sneeze.

    Given the discovery script, I will suggest there is a guest who may be one of the brightest and best, but whose on screen physical appearance distracts just enough that his message goes unheard. The age-old mad professor image comes to mind. Once again physical differences cancel acceptance.

    On the other hand, sometimes the interviewers downgrade a serious subject in favor of tripe. In the 1960’s a major morning show broadcaster hyped the appearance of the author of a book that promised to offer an explanation and solution to a major cause of unemployment. When his turn came, the interviewer gave him barely a minute, then claimed they had to move on and left him in mid-sentence. The following segment lasted about three minutes while the staff drooled on screen over a new type of soft-server ice cream device. Now that’s real news.

    Sorry, Wiley. It’s gotten so that you can’t just be funny without everybody trying to figure out whom you’re taking a shot at, even if you’re not aiming at anyone. Gotta admit, though, I kinda like Lawrence.S’s take.

    24 hour news channels played a significant role in creating today’s climate of fear. Since a typical day contains little news of great importance, the only way to get ratings is to create bad news or repeatedly hype actual bad news.

    Somehow, a wonk statistics expert got scheduled on Jon Stewart’s Daily show for an interview. His hairline receded to the top of his ears with a whispy comb-over from his neck up and over. I don’t remember anything from the interview.

    On the English broadcast of Japanese national television there is a news announcer with one ear close to his head and one ear that sticks out. I can never remember anything he says.

    I find that print news with some NPR and PBS works fine.

    It seems to me that Wiley’s point here is that our Human Nature is to become too distracted by the insignificant outward appearance of people to remain objectively focused on their message.

    Even when we do avoid that distraction, most of us tend to find some misstatement or poor choice of words which then results in us discounting everything they say.

    People actually watch the news on television? No wonder we’re in this mess.

    Most “news” shows now feature “eye candy” over actual news

    " No one ever gained weight from enjoying a little eye candy "

    I did miserably in a medieval history class—no excuse, really, but the professor, while standing, looked like a stork, and would rest one foot on, not a chair but his desk, mid-lecture. Hugely distracting (also immediately following swim class, when I was ready for a nap).
