Confessions of a news junkie

Today, as I was reading the local paper while watching the 6:00 news, I realized that my news addiction is getting worse. I read five newspapers online today (Daily Press, Waco Trib, Baylor Lariat, Washington Post, and NY Times) plus the News Sentinel in print. On top of that I read through the news at cnn.com and yahoo news. I do this pretty much every day. Except for the News Sentinel - for some reason when I opened the front door today there was one there. This happens every once in a while for some reason. I don't complain; it's another newspaper to read!

Also, the other day I was talking about the morning news in da U.P for some reason and about how I used to watch it before school every morning. When I was 12. I guess that should have been a clue then as to what was to come.

While you're up on your news, your math is rusty, Golda. You really read five newspapers online! Normally I don't notice stuff like that, but since I did, I thought I'd let you know that you're actually nerdier than you claim to be! What else are friends for? ;-)

You know, I even double checked that and read "four" and counted five and thought nothing of it. hahaha. Yeah, I'm smart...

Dear Miss News Junkie America:

I'm sure you've seen the article in the NY Times (today-10/26) on Harold Ford, Jr., re: the racist commercials that have been playing in Tn? Btw- He's got my vote! Enjoy the pretty leaves and mountains for me!'

Golda, don't worry about your newspaper addiction, i have a job and read that many papers a day.. well okay maybe not a day but part of my job is reading newspapers to pull out advertisement and events for our political candidates to go to, so its pretty crazy. i like reading, i learn things.

Vicki Chrystal? like the tv6 news anchor?? Huh??

And MB, i've been reading about the ford/corker stuff, it's nuts. it was all over the knoxville news yesterday. cer-razy.

Brian said...

Yes, Vicky Crystal, the morning news anchor on tv6. Not a good way to start off the morning...

Golda said...

Ah, gotcha. Actually, I don't think she was the morning news anchor then. I'm pretty sure it was someone else and she started when we were in high school.
