I like to watch New England Cable News in the morning. I don’t want to hear MSNBC’s opinion, CNN’s opinions, CNN Headline News‘s Robin Mead and her cutesy patter on CNN, or God forbid, anything at any time of the day that Faux News (“We decide, you abide”) has to offer.
I mostly want news I can use, and that means news I can make editorial cartoons about. I can’t use junk news (rapes, robberies, car wrecks, etc.) so I do a lot of flipping around. I watch the Hartford Courant’s TV station, FoxCT, until they get to the fluffy stuff, then I flip over to NECN (New England Cable News).
Lately, NECN has become the Whitey Bulger channel, however, I have to admit I’m a watcher. I know people who know people who were in the Winter Hill Gang, ya know? I know people who know people who were in stir, the slammer, up the river. I’m just sayin’ I gotta stay informed, ya know?
