The Talking Heads on cable TV are uniformly ridiculous as CNN and MSNBC ape the formulaic antics of the Faux News personalities. Tom Tomorrow provides delicious satire with Action McNews' Biff, The Talking Head host in colloquy with The Belligerent Neo-Con and The Ineffecutal Moderate. The giveaway as to Biff's identity is his transitional phrase before moving on to a new segment: "First, these messages" as the commercial for some inane household appliance follows. This blogger gets his news from Jon Stewart on "The Daily Show" as Stewart eviscerates the on-camera talent of Faux News, CNN, and MSNBC. It's all a joke (that is no longer very funny). If this is (fair & balanced) empty-head news media, so be it.
