What? I’m just asking!

November 6, 2007 – Tuesday

Sometimes while I work out I unfortunately have to watch TV news. It was tuned to CNN. I don’t think that any TV news is worth watching, but it does provide me with some insight into why people are becoming more and more insulted/stupid.

While I was watching the “news” I was reminded of a bit on The Daily Show that I thought was priceless. As journalists (Yes, I used to be one; I still am in my book.) we used to argue about the use of question marks in headlines. Some believed it was a way of saying nothing at all and making the reader decide what the headline should be. Others thought it was just lame while still others thought it was a complete cop out. I was in the latter two categories, which is why I thought this clip was so funny.
