Empty Heads Talking, Empty Heads Watching & Listening

Biff and Wanda are the co-anchors of "Action McNews" — the prototype of the empty-headed babbling on Faux News, CNN, and MSNBC. These anchors are aided and abetted by a correspondent — Betty McBetty. Jon Stewart, on his "Daily Show," makes great sport of mocking the empty-heads (both in the studio and out in the "field"), but Tom Tomorrow runs a close race for nailing the babblers to the barn door. If this is (fair & balanced) empty-calorie TV journalism, so be it.
