    Is it just me or does the media just love to report about pretty white girls being lost/kidnapped/killed? Just thinking.

    Of course it's true. It always has been true. You saw what a stink the bloggers had to make before Cnn/MSNBC/ Fox etc started running stories about the missing black girl from Philly (her name escapes me). But whenever I get to mad, I realize who owns the media and who the news is marketed to, and then I'm ok again...
    When the dark clouds gather on the horizon, when thunder and lightning fills the sky, When fate is but a glint in the eye of a fallen Rattler, And hopes are lost friends, When the sinew of the chest grows weary from those hard-charging linebackers, And the muscles in the legs grow tired from those hard-charging running backs ... You must remember that the Rattlers will... Strike, Strike, and Strike again.

    I've felt this way for the longest time... It Depends who I voice my opinion to, I'm accused of pulling the race card. How is it that the race card, when many others, including white, feel the same way?

    I went to a comedy show a while ago, and the black comedian was hilarious - he had a bit about white girls scaring the hell out of him. If he saw one walking toward him, he got out of the way. His rationale was that if she went missing, there would be a swarm of police out looking for her and turning over every rock to find out what happened. He figured it would be his luck that his prints would happen to be on a soda can nearby (totally unrelated) - they would come busting through his door and find him drinking his soda and eating cheesy-poofs in his underwear watching porn - thus making him guilty as found! (I know he tells it better, best I can do while typing!)

    CABLE BATTLE: CNN HEAD CALLS FOXNEWS COVERAGE 'MEANINGLESS NONSENSE'
    Tue Aug 23 2005 20:34:26 ET

    CNN President Jonathan Klein implies ratings news leader FOXNEWS is mired in coverage of "meaningless nonsense," claiming: "Fourteen Americans dead, and they have Natalee Holloway on," Klein says. "And they're supposedly America's news channel."

    "It's easy and it's brainless," Klein charges in a telephone interview set for publication at the NEW YORK TIMES, explaining why cable news outlets are gravitating to the Aruba story. "They're looking for an ongoing drama" along the lines of the NBC crime show "Law & Order," he said, adding, "Except 'Law & Order' doesn't do the same plot every night."

    "There are an awful lot of things you can cover if you don't have people tied up with this meaningless nonsense," Klein says.

    In early July, Klein pulled CNN's correspondent out of Aruba and dropped the subject from most CNN shows in the absence of new developments.

    "If Jon performed as well as he talks, he wouldn't have to explain his network's dismal ratings," says Irena Briganti, a spokeswoman for FOXNEWS. "We have trounced him on every breaking news story from the London bombings and last week's events in Gaza."
