First CNN Headline News gave up their evening hours to a succession of hour-long tabloid shows. I was grateful that their website was, at least, relatively straight by comparison. Then I took a look at it today. Among the "top stories" (see attachment): A plane crash with a sensational headline ("flaming!") Winning lottery tickets Commentary from Lou Dobbs The Libby jurors wanted hot dogs! A child screaming just before her murder A story about a comic book hero *Sigh.* It is to weep. I hardly know which bothers me the most -- the soft features masking as "news", the screaming "if it bleeds, it leads" headlines, or the fact that CNN keeps putting their own Lou Dobbs' commentaries up there as if they were breaking news. Yeah, I know, CNN has been going downhill for a long time, but I think within the last two months they've really tanked. The "headlines" they've got today are the stupidest ones yet. Give it another year and their website will have stories about aliens and Bigfoot and their network will be running The Howard Beale Show.
