CNN and CTV National News here in Canada took 30 seconds or so of my valuable news time, for which I count on them to bring me the urgent global stories that matter most to me, to inform me with the appropriate grave tone:
The dog from Frasier has died!!!!!!!!!
OMG..... can you imagine the crushing blow this loss means to celebrity canines worldwide. Lassie is spinning in her grave.....
The world will never be the same. I am just devastated...I tell you.... I don't know how I can go on in this life.
(I guess if you ask no questions about WMD, this certainly counts as a responsible journalistic piece nowadays. USA>>> you are getting sleepy.... very sleepy.....)
