I’ve long been amused by CNN’s wacky mixture of
“human interest stories” and “real news” — neither of which are interesting to humans, or in any way real. They have a real knack for the most inappropriate segues. Yesterday, while at the dentist, I saw them segue from a mass-murder trial to a story about siamese tortoises.
Today’s “Top Stories” from CNN.com don’t disappoint. As my friend Isaac puts it, “somedays i think they just make them up – to see what people would believe”.
You just can’t make stuff like that up.
