firecat: (quadruple facepalm)

Most news headlines are nothing but useless fluff or fearmongering, but sometimes I think I should look at news headlines rather than getting all my news from Facebook. Lately when I feel this way I have been going to http://cnnmobile.com/primary/worldnews.

Today this appears as one of THREE HEADLINES in the "Middle East" section:

"Obese Saudi Arabian man sheds more than 300 pounds"

I fucking give up. HOW IS THAT WORLD NEWS?!?!?!

He must have been pretty fluffy. My cats don't shed that much, ever.

I'm getting tempted to give up and get all my news from The Civilian (I think you'll particularly appreciate this article) and the Colbert Report.

That's a lot of money! The journalists were probably all scrabbling for it.

Because it gets everyone to freak out about their weight and support the diet-medical complex. That drives ad buys...

Well, CNN isn't exactly known for offering news, these days.

Al Jazeera has a US branch now, and that's where I'm getting my serious US news from.
