To What Shall The MSM Be Compared? [OregonMuse]

This is an open thread for non-book discussion.

Expanded and enlarged from some moron comments several weeks ago, this is what the MSM is like:

CBS News is like your drunk uncle who tells lousy stories and then gets mad when you don't believe him.

ABC News is like Joe Biden after he drank something he found in your garage.

CNN is like a senile old woman who talks to no one but herself.

MSNBC is like the stringy-haired crazy woman who lives in a run-down old house with 83 cats.

Fox News is like a carnival barker outside of a strip joint.

NPR is like a con man with a fake British accent.

The BBC is like a con man with a real British accent. And bad teeth.

Reuters is like a pimply-faced college freshman who's just read Howard Zinn and now considers himself enlightened.
