Colorado's Prez is a Cunt...In a Nice Way

As a public service, here's the best story of the day, perhaps of the month:

"The president of the University of Colorado would not say in a sworn deposition whether she considered a certain slur against women 'vile,' and later said she had heard it used as 'a term of endearment,' according to media reports."

Read the above story, I guarantee it'll make your day.

Now, as another public service, because I'm so awesome, here are two stories that lead me to believe that nobody in journalism today has good editorial judgment anymore...

CNN is a lovely outfit. I know plenty of people who work there, they're all lovely people. But the fact that these guys still call themselves a news network is astonishing. Of the eight "More Top Stories" on the front fuckin' page of CNN.com, two of them are:

T-Boz files for divorce, claims abuse and Glen Campbell gets 10 days in jail for drunken driving.

Ummm, slow news day? First of all, T-Boz filing for divorce from a no-name rapper is considered major news? Didn't this bitch already die in a fiery car crash? Or was that the one that burned down Andre Rison's house? Or was that the one who's plane went down because she had too much luggage? I'm all confused.

And Glen Campbell? Who the fuck is this guy? What kind of a world do we live in where some out-of-work country singer can drive drunk, get sentenced to 10 days in jail six months later and that's fuckin' front page news on CNN?! Wow.

Now, if the story was Glen Campbell Donkey Punches T-Boz After a Hot Carl, then I'd be impressed. That story would be Lenny Krayzelburg.

As it stands, shame on CNN for ridiculously bad judgment. Where's mustachioed Arnold Diaz and the CBS 2 Shame on You crew when you need 'em? I bet they're out givin' T-Boz a Dirty Sanchez or two...

Off to see a sneak preview of Dodgeball tonight. Hopefully it'll be as funny as advertised. I'm predicting at least two or three Oscars for this one -- I hear the sound guys did an amazing job on this flick.

In a strange twist of events, turns out the sound on the movie was pretty shitty... also saw the "Shitty Beattles." They're not that good...

Of course the woman commenting on a vaginal slang is named Regina.

Those are both pretty funny posts...The Shitty Beatles reference, that's brilliance. "Phil, I was there."

As a follow up to yesterday's posting, it seems that CNN.com has taken note. Journalistic integrity has been acheived once again with these great headlines:
-Alanis Morissette gets engaged
-Hog Owners Pay for Smell

Now don't get me wrong, I like Van Wilder just as much as the next washed up lezzie rocker, but is it really front page worthy? I mean, is it even last page worthy?
