blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: Channel 5 News

Channel 5 News

Due to the baseball playoffs (that I do not care about), I watched Channel 5 News tonight. Holy cow, I thought Fox 4 was bad. Random Observations: - Mike Synder and Jane McGarry, at best, can only read the news. They are caricatures of local anchor people. - The information is of questionable veracity at best. After telling me than some poor sap was arrested for growing 178 pot plants at his home (good lord, this is 2006 isn't it?), Mike Synder looks at the camera and tells me that "the marijuana had an estimated street value of $300,000." Whatever! Mike may be smoking the stuff. - And then they put this graphic up (pictured above) about some guy that allegedly molested some girl in the Burleson Walmart. He was arrested in the parking lot and, as Jane told me with a very straight face, he had six outstanding traffic warrants. Six!!!!!! - I just stopped watching when Jane proclaimed "never have that time of the month again" due to a "miracle medical breakthrough". Menopause?

I always wonder if their is a blog out there boo'ing Barry's courtroom techniques.
The Anchorperson That's Been Criticized By Barry Association (TATBCBBA) sends uncover witnesses to pose as the jury panel. Every now and then they can reel in a peace officer that sympathizes with their mission statement. Then they report back in their monthly meetings to sip wine and discuss how to get back at him for all his negative postings.....
Next month there is rumor of a celebrity guest.... Nicole Richie.
Channel 4 and 5 finally banded together with one common goal in mind.... to boo Barry.
Yes, that dang Barry!

My hope is that somebody will recognize Jane's brilliance as a reporter (?) and send her on up the ladder.

Another Katie cutie only with a monotone voice.

Barry - I agree completely. These two are a poor parody of "news people." Some of the others aren't much better - but they're certainly better.

Barry, the blog is becoming clogged with boring sports crap.

Please get back to more common everyday things that involve nekked girls,midgets and puppits.

Thanks

I personally wouldn't miss the morning Fox 4 News. I love Tim's sarcasm. Wakes me up every morning.

Use your remote....go to the other boring station.

Have a GREAT DAY!

Ever since Mike "I am a professioanl neutral journalist" Snyder got suspended for speaking at a Repub. rally, I have decided I would watch FOX. At least I KNOW the are biased and they don't try to make you believe otherwise. Hope he gets caught again and gets booted like the guy on WFAA.

So Goober, Let me get this straight. You used to watch Mike Snyder until he exposed himself as a Republican. But before then you didn't know he was a Republican but watched him anyway. How do you know the people at Fox aren't Republicans? Do you need to know their affiliation before you will watch them? Great reasoning. I don't watch any of them because they are all a bunch of highly paid newsreaders and I get my news from reliable sources.

Reliable sources like the blog cuz if Barry don't talk about it, it ain't worth hearin.
