Very Random News Thought


Channel 5 did a segment on Curves last night. Basically, it interviewed the owner of one of the franchises, spoke to women that had only had wonderful success, and mentioned the "new machines" that the fitness club was offering.

Man, it looked like a commercial disguised as a news story. I heard something similar on the radio a while back when there was a story on the anniversary of the Slurpee - but the segment also talked about the new products that were being introduced into 7-11.

I wonder if the stations are truly getting paid for these things?

Reminds me of the 92.5 "commercials" these days. You could probably bet they ARE getting paid for such crappola.

Yep, our great "news" media at work! They look upon us as their victims, not viewers.
