It has been a tough week for news media, specifically CNN, because apparently you can’t create wild, racist accusations and report them as exclusive facts. FIIIIIIINEEEEEEEEEEEEUH. Gosh, fine, whatever! IT’S ALMOST LIKE YOU GUYS DON’T EVEN WANT “NEWS”! Even this morning, as the bleary anchors at CNN tried to report actual things that were happening around them, it seemed like they were having a tough time. “A dog is barking…do I smell smoke? Who is this? We have a girl here…oh hold on. Hold on. The suspect has two Golden Globes — gloves. Here is the address of the suspect’s uncle.” (This being said, I’m sure it is a VERY difficult thing to report on events happening around you for 12+ hours while you are unsure about whether or not your own life could be in danger. It’s all a mess. Lots of different ways to think about it. Let’s get to this Ryan Lochte interview, huh?) It might be difficult, at this time, to have any faith in the Twitter and otherwise-influenced media to accurately report what the hell is even going on out there. And that is where the MyFoxPhilly news team come in, having a COMPLETELY ACCURATE reaction to Ryan Lochte.
Thank you, MyFoxPhilly. (Via Gawker.)
