Your Daily WTF Moments

I swear I'm basically going to become a link-to-news-watchdog's blog, but anyway, here are your daily WTF moments. And yes, that is the most scientific way I can think of describing them, thanks for asking.

  1. Fox News is accusing ABC of having unprecedented access to the White House and Obama in its report on Health Care reform, even though they got to do exactly the same thing with Bush when he was in power but a few years ago.
  2. North Korea are planning on firing a missile at Hawaii to celebrate July 4th. "Oh, that's the day independence day is on? We just thought it was the 15th anniversary of Glorious Leader Kim-Il-Sung's death..." There really isn't much more I can say on this one.
  3. Lastly, PETA is annoyed at Obama since he swatted a fly. And if you want to see some real newscasters on it, Stephen Colbert covered it here (it starts at around 3:15).

I don't even understand how news becomes news anymore. I mean, with the North Korean missile thing I understand, but with FOX's accusation and PETA's latest uproar it's like... really? THAT'S what's considered hard news nowadays?

The missile thing is scaring the crap out of me. We're all gonna end up nuking each other. :(

I watched the interview where he swatted the fly. I thought it was pretty impressive.

I'm really liking your blog. Do you do link exchanges?
