A Moment of Truth….On Fox News?

…posted by eric heller….

Smash Your TVMontel Williams has blasted Faux News – on the air and in their faces – for their tabloid-like exploitation of Heath Ledger’s death. Daily Kos has the details and the video:

It was a spectacle rarely seen on live cable television, as Montel exposed and condemned both tabloid “news” shows and much of American culture for what they have each become: shallow and greedy.

Talk about Must See TV. It has also apparently cost the man his job.

I was in the bank on Thursday where the propaganda machine television goes all day to keep the folk happy and sedated, I guess. And what’s CNN reporting on? With grim seriousness and “on location” urgency they’ve got Britney Spears and her hospital stay.

Cable news has really become a national embarrassment. Here’s an idea: Shut the freaking thing off. Nothing would be better than a few million people putting commercial media on “ignore” to send a message.
