That sound you just heard, that faint death rattle? That was journalism's last dying breath. Yup, the centuries old craft of reporting news finally kicked the f**king bucket!
And, before you starting pointing any fingers, also us to direct your attention to this:
CNN has been caught red handed.
You know the enigma surrounding the missing Malaysian airplane? Those scruple-free newsmen and women have been milking that mystery for two months, but their 24/7 tragedy coverage might have finally just crossed the line!
In a "scientific" poll they conducted, the cable news network asked fans and followers whether they thought Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 was… wait for it… wait for it… abducted by space aliens, time travelers, or perhaps even beings from another dimension!!!
In case you were wondering, 9% of those who responded to the asinine inquiry said it was likely that the aliens/time travelers/inter-dimensional beings played a part in the plane's disappearance. See the pic (below)!
Ugh! How disconcerting!
The real story, though, is how low CNN sank to indulge any wackadoo theory that might be good for TV ratings or internet clicks!!
We expected better from you!!! What happened to raising the bar on public discourse?
Disappointment, thy name is Wolf Blitzer!!!
