NPR: reporting on everything but THAT

November 18, 2009

If I hear the word “mammogram” one more time…

The news really does beat a subject to death.  Whatever the hot topic of the moment – Balloon Boy, Sarah Palin, Ms. California, Elliot Spitzer, H1N1 – news outlets bring in experts, interrupt with special reports, host discussion panels, conduct polls, interrupt their special reports with special reports and find one ridiculous angle after another to keep the story alive.  I find myself searching for a station or channel that isn’t in the tank for whatever subject finds itself in the spotlight, eventually having to settle for televangelists or Nickelodeon.

I would like a radio or TV station that refuses to utter one word about the current Hot Topic.

I remember a day when the words “maverick” and “change” didn’t make me cringe.
