That’s all the tabloids need to print next to a picture of Osama to get the gist of the last 24 hours across.
It’s interesting comparing the way each major network relays the story on cable TV here in Thailand. I like to flick between BBC News, Al Jazeera and then the ever-present Fox News. If you’re reading this blog then, err… well, you can read – meaning you’re outside the demographic Fox News targets.
Actually, I love Fox News – it’s one of the funniest shows on television. And useful. When I don’t have a fresh cup of coffee around to wake me up in the morning, nothing gets my blood pumping faster than the rage inspired by listening to Bill O’Reilly’s idea of what is “Fair and Balanced.”
Seriously, I can switch from groggy to go within about 60 seconds of flicking on the telly and listening that nincompoop sound off. Try it. Really, TV is the only drug I need – Forget caffeine and diazepam – I have Fox News to wake me up and the Tourism Channel to put me to sleep. It’s the perfect substitute ;)
