Dateline, Primetime and those other news shows...

I have a confession. I'm addicted to the "news" shows.
Last night, I ate up the latest "Dateline's: To Catch a Predator." While these shows claim they are doing a public service, let's not be fooled. It's ALL about the ratings.

I don't know what amazes me more: That these sick men keep showing up to molest children, or that reporter Chris Hanson hasn't been shot yet. I keep waiting for some guy to pull out a guy and blow him away.

NBC keeps churning out these shows as a "public service" but notice they NEVER come out during non sweeps months or months were they need a boost. At first, the shows were informative, but now they keep milking them for everything they are worth. It's shocking to see what type of men show up, some of these men look like everyday ordinary people and it's scary to see that they show up to molest these kids.

Tonight, I'm watching "Primetime" and they are "exposing" that girls can be mean. Wow. Sho-cking. Girls can be mean? Duh.

It's also kinda sad that this is so important that this takes up a whole hour.
