Thanks to an inability to sleep, I spotted this on Leno. Thought I'd pass the link along, since it made me giggle. Enjoy.

Glad you liked it Kreskin. I thought it was really neatly done. There are some others on there that aren't as well done, like the Bush rap, but are still a bit funny anyhow.

I can't sleep, and I'm bored, so I'm watching lame tv and looking for things to occupy my mind. lol.

media is all screwed up for many reasons:

RATINGS
COMPANY AND POLITICAL BIAS
OWNERS/TOP GUYS IDEOLOGY

Basically people watch what they agree with.

How can I trust FOX News to report fairly on News Corp. (their parent company)
How can I expect CNN to report fairly on Time Warner Cable (their parent company)
How can I expect NBC/MSNBC to report fairly on General electric (their parent company)
How can I expect CBS to report fairly on Viacom (their parent company)
How can I expect ABC to report fairly on Disney (their parent company)
How can I expect CTV to report fairly on CTVglobemedia (their parent company)
How can I expect Global to report fairly on Canwest Global (their parent company)

Its all owned by some huge company or another, and its all about the ratings.

Sadly Anna Nicole Smith and Britney Spears bring in more ratings then Iraq

Unless something HUGE comes up, me and others could care less about the day's events in Iraq or Afghanistan.

Know what you mean, I'm winding down my day watching Gunsmoke.
