As a lifelong ignorer of news, I usually have no idea what is happening in Bosnia or Washington DC or even Seattle. Sure I’ve heard of the occasional Disney princess (Miley Virus anyone?) going awry or the forecast of an actual sunny day in Seattle, but the news interferes with me playing video games or napping, which are way more important than being informed about the world. Besides, I can’t expose my kids to such violence, terror and the once-in-a lifetime “good” news story that accidently makes it through editing of a newscast.
As I accidently left the news on when I ignorned the ending of a television show I was watching, I realized that there is all kinds of news out there: angry news, depressing news, good news (not reallly) but for some reason there is no bitter news. Clearly there is a market out there that is being untapped. Since I am the unnofficial and official spokesperson for bitterness(a dying art which I hope to revive), it is my responsiblity to start my own news and entertainment network. So I along with the help (by help I mean she did most of the work) of Amanda and her family from the blog Write in the Wrong Way (another slightly less bitter blogger) we have filmed our first episode of bitter news on the new Bitter Entertainment Network. We have searched a medium distance and found a small slice of old outdated news, sports, entertainment news and weather to bring you the first (and possibly last) episode of the Bitter News. So with ado, I present to you the badly teleprompter read(by me at least) news:
Arrrrghhhh, Stay Bitter Seattle (and every other place)
Bitter Entertainment Ben (BEB for short)
