Epic fail by Fox News, CNN, Georgia, and Afghanistan

Fox News and CNN have both failed to report the suicide of Jesse Huff. Why? Too busy sitting around in a circle and screaming at one another? Still debating who is more American? Reading breaking news off your Twitter lists? Trying to figure out who the pinhead of the day is? I just watched a piece on Fox News regarding acupuncture for dogs…really? This is news? WHO GIVES A SHIT. Why don’t you take two minutes and report the Huff story? Fail. But I am sure I’ll hear more about Tiger Woods or Big Ben. PLEASE REPORT REAL NEWS. PLEASE REPORT REAL NEWS. PLEASE REPORT REAL NEWS. I know sometimes it is really difficult. You all just love talking about the same old bullshit but challenge yourselves…just this once. A veteran should not kill himself on the steps of a VA hospital and go unnoticed.


Starting in July, the state of Georgia will give veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) the opportunity to have a notification (graphical symbol) on their driver's licenses. I’m not sure how I feel about this. Why not have symbols for those infected with HIV/AIDS? There are those out there with PTSD who are not in the armed services or veterans. What do they get? Nothing?

Georgia is making moves.


What the fuck Afghanistan? FRONTLINE exposes the ritual of sexual abuse of young boys in Afghanistan.

“In Afghanistan today, in the midst of war and endemic poverty, an ancient tradition--banned when the Taliban were in power--has re-emerged across the country. It's called Bacha Bazi, translated literally as "boy play." Hundreds of boys, some as young as eleven, street orphans or boys bought from poor families by former warlords and powerful businessmen, are dressed in woman's clothes, taught to sing and dance for the entertainment of male audiences, and then sold to the highest bidder or traded among the men for sex.”

This is beyond disturbing. Watch the preview…you’ll puke in your mouth a little.

More information and preview.

The Dancing Boys of Afghanistan will air Tuesday, April 20, at 9 p.m.

On this fail of reporting, after a day or two of not hearing anything I began looking for a good way to possibly email some of the mentioned sources to ask why this story was not covered.

I have found that some of these sources make it hard to correspond with them.
