sad and crazy

so I had nothing to do yesterday so I watched TV.

a broadcast from a supposed "leading" jouranlist (his firm was so under that his boss used political connentions to get a huge loan from a bank, that no bank should have given, in order to keep his bitchass chanel afloat)

the issue was the refugee/migrant crisis.


the guests were:
1.) a flipped, completely crazy and uber narcisit communist who lives in the richest possible neighborhood of athens, her father was a big shot upper class and she wears a cross.


she is crazy, she gets numbers (views) so she was invited

2) a semi-crazy doctor, member of the far right wing party that is in the coalition government. he shouted a lot, then the so called communsit shouted back - zero absolut.

3) a guy that was far right, now he says he's center right. was minister for some time, apponted all his fucking family in public service posts

4) another guy from the newly founded liberal party. goes to the gym and generally despises everything. had some generalized comments to make. they were empty because they were too general, but it was better than the shouting match between the "communist" and the crazy doctor

5) a guy from the former socialist party (that is now decimated). Actually that guy was the best of the lot, because he was mild and has actually ministerial experience and he was competent when he was there.


so, to sum up, an hour of shouting, absolutely nothing of substance said, the ads roled on schedule so the cash was collected, and that's considered the cream of tv broadcasting.


why would anyone bother is a mystery

As an information medium, TV is dead.

Do a podcast of your own if you think you can do better. Become the change you wish to see in the world and all that.
