Do you remember that show? It was about a news anchor named Murphy Brown. In it she works on the hard hitting news show FYI and has to deal with the dumbing down of the news.
There are many episodes that deal with her and her co-workers fighting against sensationalistic journalism and trying to stay legit and intelligent!
They often use to exaggerate the dumber story's the other news shows would deal with to add to the humorous spin on things! But now looking back on the stories that were the parody's of the stupid news of the 80's I realised something.
Our news reporting has gotten worse!
News shows today are worse than the silly parodied news reports in the 80's!
To re iterate, they use to joke the news reporting was getting so dumbed down, but now the news reporting is more dumbed down then the joke reporting of the 80's!
Now real life news reporting is the joke!
How sad is the world when the silly parodied news of the 80's is more legit than the "real" news of the year 2011!
What have we become?
Where do you guys get your news from?
