News, but not the serious kind

Why are you still yammering?


Okay, I have a serious bone to pick with the news media.

It is being widely reported that the evangelical Christian broadcaster whose Judgment Day prophecy went embarrassingly unfulfilled on Saturday has explained that he miscalculated, and the actual Apocalypse will happen later.

So my question is, why are we even still quoting this man? Why are we spreading his hogwash?

In my book, he’s moved to the very, very bottom of the list, under every other person on earth, when it comes to credibility about Apocalypses, yet here we are running stories about his newest prediction.

Really? How many chances does he GET?

And while I’m on the subject, a “miscalculation” is like when you leave too small a tip for your waiter, and so he beats you up in the parking lot.
