I used to enjoy watching the news, it was something i picked up off my old man, where dinner was always promptly at 6:00 and we sat down and ate while viewing/talking about things. It was short, sharp to the point and generally interesting even when they had the odd light hearted story and it was precision personified virtually working in order from local, international to sport, weather.
That all went out the window some time ago, but even more so when the nightly news stretched to an hour long.
Now it's constant previews of what's coming up in sport/weather, special interest stories which are really just paid ads and my personal fave viral video sensations. I mean they are not even trying and it shits me no end.
Brian Naylor would be turning over in his grave you bastards. Take a good fucking hard look at yourselves. I can just feel the brain cells dying, if I want reality TV i will go out of my way to find it. Just give me the news with no BS.
