Today’s Outrage — no news is good news?

It’s a good thing we get a newspaper in the morning (two, actually) and read the news online (more RSS feeds than I can count), because if I had to rely on the Today Show for my morning news, this is what I would think is going on in the world:

  • J-Lo is coaching the final eight on American Idol
  • Larry Birkhead is the father of Anna Nicole’s baby
  • Espresso will keep you up at night

This is all I would know because I missed the first 30 minutes of the Today Show. This is your only chance to get the news on this show, folks. Miss those first half hour and all you’ve got is the two-minute briefs and celebrity and health news, which is usually common sense stuff like espresso will keep you up at night.

Oh, did you know chocolate contains caffine and can keep you up, too?
