A mayor in Utica, NY wants the FCC to ban advertiser from using the term "Breaking News"
Anyone that can't tell the difference between a commercial and a news story should just slowly walk away from the remote. I have some "Breaking News!" for the mayor... Hey, Dave! Your city is going to (Somewhere south of here) in a hand basket and you're writing the FCC about this?
Not the role of the FCC to regulate speech...clearly that is solely the job of the Supreme Court.
More reasons why I stopped watching TV. The commercials are too loud, over the top, and unnecessary. (plus the programming stinks)
On TV it is the word, "news" that is abused. The network station personnel no longer know the difference between "news" and "gossip."
Bill, I have warned you before, you have to stop saying things that make us agree! :smilewinkgrin:
Seriously, you are absolutely right.
Another pet peeve is when they constantly give an update on a big story and they say "Well there is nothing new to report"
Or "news" and "entertainment".
Another pet peeve of mine- when the "reporters" feel the need to make the news instead of reporting it.
You can read that different ways and they are all wrong.
And then spend the next 45 minutes explaining what nothing new is including several experts on nothing explaining how nothing new isn't really nothing nor is it new.
