Cause HLN has just spent five minutes discussing the pregnancies of Snookie and Jessica Simpson. I'll stick with CNBC.

Ahhh cable news. All the advantages of Christianity and alcohol; none of their defects. There is always cable news, informative cable news, half an hour for a workday, an hour for a week-end, two hours for a post on internet fora, three for a dark eternity on the moon.
There's always cable news to calm your anger, to reconcile you to your enemies, to make you patient and long-suffering. In the past you could only accomplish these things by making a great effort and after years of hard moral training. Now, you watch two or three half-hour shows, and there you are. Anybody can be virtuous now. You can develop at least half your morality between commercial breaks. Christianity without tears-that's what cable news is.
Hug me till you drug me, honey; Kiss me till I'm in a coma; Hug me, honey, snuggly bunny; Love's as good as soma.
Aldous Huxley (mangled heavily above) thought it would be a pharmaceutical, sometimes it is, but for the masses it's cable news ... and "reality" television.
We can do the innuendo, we can dance and sing When it's said and done, we haven't told you a thing We all know that crap is king, give us dirty laundry
