Just when Fox News, the show advertised as “fair and balanced,” seems to be ebbing in influence, we get two more “news” programs that the FCC has inexplicably now termed as news: Fox’s TMZ and the Christian Broadcast Network’s 700 Club.

Ever since the 1988 ruling by the FCC that Entertainment Tonight was news things have gone downhill. It’s no longer news we’re seeing, it’s entertainment and opinions (largely ignorant and tuned to create controversy.) At least The Daily Show has humor with it’s opinions – my guess is that will be ruled news before you know it.

If you haven’t seen the movie Idiocracy yet, go rent it. I stipulate, it’s a stupid, over-the-top parody of our (future) world, but somehow it seems less over-the-top with each passing day. I can’t help but wonder when the reality show “Ow, My Balls!” will appear on prime time…

Meanwhile, brace yourself for more Brittany Spears coverage (pun intended) from TMZ and breaking news on the “scientific breakthroughs” on intelligent design uncovered by cracking the bible codes reported live on the 700 Club. It’s true, there is a silver lining in every cloud, at least I’ll have more blog fodder!
