Dear News Cycle

Dear News Cycle,
Pretty crazy about this whole Manti Te’o thing, right?
I mean, I can’t believe it. You can’t even trust anonymous strangers on the internet any more?
What is this world coming to?!?
… but seriously, this is a news story?
It’s like if Catfish and Rudy had a… well, a really boring love child.
I mean, I think we’re still in some wars, right? Maybe cover that?
Or, ya know what? I would even be more interested in a story about, I dunno, gluten or something.
I’m just saying, get over the fake importance of this fake news story and start reporting something substantial, is that too much to ask?
Sincerely,
Calhoun

  1. Amen, Calhoun! Everything in our world has become so instantaneous (twitter, texting, email, blogs, 24-hour reporting) that nothing is NEWS any more. So, apparently, they have to make stuff up. Between this, Jodie Foster and the Armstrong confession, it’s been a big long week of “NO DUH!”
