A MATTER OF TIME…

I'm sick of all the local news programs in Chicago, they all think that they have something more to offer than the other stations, even though they clearly all show the same news stories over and over again. The worst one being the channel 9 news in the morning. They think that they are so funny and clever and that friggin internet segment is so stupid. Those weather people are a piece of work. I'm pretty sure that all they do is lookup the weather on the internet and then stand in front of those computer maps that they probably put together with PowerPoint. They only true weather forecaster or Meteorologist is Tom Skilling, yes he's on channel 9 but he comes on during the professional news. He actually studied weather and has been forecasting since before the days of computers. Back to the point of this piece. Did you ever look up in the sky and notice 4 helicopters all flying in the same area? It's all the friggin news channels covering the same thing, with the same angles. I think it's silly when they give you a traffic alert and it's like this insignificant accident on some street you never heard of and don't care about. It's just a matter of time before 2 of those helicopters crash into each other. I wonder if they'll keep rolling the cameras, could you imagine we'd get a bird's eye view of the crash not to mention the footage from the other helicopters.
