newscaster complains about bad news

Had a syndicated cartoon about television for  5 years, and have also sold to Emmy Magazine. I don’t watch that much TV, honestly! – but the TV I do watch I just love, and I almost always go over to TWOP to see what others think of it. (They usually agree with me, making me feel quite wise, and if they don’t…that’s why my keyboard has a backspace key.)

I discovered Television Without Pity after the first episode of Lost, which affected me so profoundly that I needed to connect with others, right away, to see if I was nuts to be this excited about television. For me, that’s when TV turned from good, to great. After Lost it was Prison Break, then Reaper, with a few others.

I am absolutely devastated today to discover that NBCUniversal is now dumping TV Without Pity – all the seasons, all the shows, the recaps, thousands or hundreds of thousands of perspicacious comments thrown into the trash. No archives.

 educator feels he failed when his students appear on reality TV
educator feels he failed when his students appear on reality TV

I know, right? (shades of the latest terrible Bachelorette, Emily Maynard, who said this until your ears bleed.) It’s true, the contestants on reality television don’t seem all that bright much of the time……Wait a minute. I actually write and tweet about these reality shows, so what does that make ME feel like?! Of course, we’re all just a little bit better than the people who actually appear in them, of course. :)

This poor teach or professor, taking it personally! Don’t worry, you don’t have to graduate to be on TV, especially when they’re unscripted.

tv reporting is too slow
twitter for fast-breaking news!

Here’s where you can find breaking news, and bad journalism, before anyone else nowadays:

  1. Twitter (especially good info about dead people)
  2. Facebook (Most news on Facebook is usually wrong, dubious sources, or several years old, however. :) But it’s fast. :)
  3. Radio (if they have s separate news team. Otherwise, just amusing gossip)
  4. Actual newspaper sites or the AP (often the first version of a news report is partly wrong, but what are you going to do, right?)
  5. Huffington Post (PuffPo) — (Not an actual news source, but a content farm that is quicker to steal than any other site.) Read More Best sources for real news.

mother complains child watches too much tv
What does “too much TV” mean?

I haven’t a clue.

Just kidding! I love love love TV. Step away from my TV, and you won’t get hurt.

I really could care less what kids do when they’re safely locked up at home, but I Googled how much TV the kiddies actually watch now. Here you go: how much TV kids watch:

According to TV ratings company Nielsen, kids in 2012, age 2 to 11, watched an average of 24 hours of TV a week. That’s an average of three and a half hours a day.
