The contents (such as they were) were a detailed update on the Terri Schaivo case, a report on how Martha Stewart dislikes her monitoring legband, an update on the status a few other Hollywood celebrities, a report on the Pope's health, and a report on Prince Rainier's health. The Martha Stewart and Terri Schaivo reports were by far the most detailed, especially the latter.
Ahh, yes, Schaivo. If there's any better example of a non-news item that's being endlessly repeated in order to distract human sheep from thinking about real news, I can't think of one. As emotional and heart-wrenching as the debate over the best course of action must be for Schaivo's friends and relatives, let's face it: she's still just one individual.
Meanwhile, the misrule of the Establishment kills millions as a result of poverty and wars. And you can bet that if folks are thinking and talking about Schaivo, then they're probably not thinking and talking as much about poverty of the illegal war of imperialist aggression in Iraq.
Any news organization that wastes much time on Schaivo has immediately proved its uselessness as a serious news source. And as for Congress and the rest of the Federal government, any governance structure that obsesses itself with such non-issues while at the same time failing to address real issues it's responsible for has just demonstrated its illegitimacy.
