God I hate when the News is on.

All You hear are:

- Who Killed Who
- Who Raped Who
- What Country is with War with another Country
- Dickheads Prostesting
- Why the World is f’ed

No Wonder People are Depressed
It's been that way for a while, Dave!:


Skyhooks Lyrics
"Horror Movie"
(1974)


Watch a horror movie right there on my TV
Horror movie right there on my TV
Horror movie right there on my TV
Shockin' me right outa my brain

It's bound to get ya in
Get right under your skin
Hit you right on the chin - oh yeah
It's bound to be a thriller
It's bound to be a chiller
It's bound to be a killer - oh yeah

The planes are a-crashin
The cars are a-smashin
The cops are a-bashin - oh yeah
The kids are a-fightin
The fires are a-lightin
The dogs are a-bitin - oh yeah

You think it's just a movie on silver screen
And they're all actors and fake old scenes
Maybe you don't care who's gonna lose or win
Listen to this and I'll tell you somethin'

It's a horror movie right there on my TV
Horror movie right there on my TV
Horror movie and it's blown a fuse
Horror movie, it's the six-thirty news

The public's waitin
For the killin and the hatin
Switch on the station - oh yeah
They do a lotta sellin
Between the firin and the yellin
And you believe in what they're tellin - oh yeah

I agree Dave. Smug self righteous and buried up their own posteriors.

Michael Rowland is the Prince of their conceited kingdom. I have a serious bone to pick with that guy and 1 day he may just have to eat his words

I really like them. The ABC news lets me keep my sanity. Any other news channel in this country is so cringy to watch and not much of a step up from A Current Affair imo. Very biased too. I get your thoughts about them seeming to talk down to people. It's a failure in their communication if that's how they're coming across. That said I actually think they're the only news agency in Australia that don't treat me like an idiot. They try to explain, which is more than our politicians try to do.

I feel the ABC/SBS is just as Biased the Other Way.

Well I guess it more for the Smarter/Educated People

My dad has been watching sky news recently and if you want to speak of bias you need check some of their news and social commentators then you will really understand bias and cringe worthy.

I find I watch it for 2 minutes and then I explode it is diabolical no semblance of bi partisanship at all and they could not give a stuff if you know it,that is the real arrogance right there.

I don't think it's meant to be that way and if how they communicate comes across that way I reckon they've failed somewhere. I can't say I agree they're just as biased. I think they strike the right balance.

I hate that Fish Farms Force you to keep your Fish and Pay for it
That's why I don't take clients to fish farms anymore, these days I take them fishing to spots where I catch fish and use my own fishing gear, I then claim any tackle etc. from the company I work for

Dave Fox News Is Biased
Cnn is Biased
Abc is Biased
The Age is Biased
The Herald Sun is Biased
Whilst I on occasion watch or read there I much prefer sport.
And also a good movie or documentary.
I hate cooking shows they make me hungry.
I barley watch or Read the News.

Only watch Sports and Majoritly what I watch is from Youtube
