Lou Dobbs Tonight: Hard Hitting News

Does anyone wonder why cable news shows generally have poor ratings and are only watched by channel surfers and boring political junkies like myself? Rhetorical question, but it just never ceases to amaze me the depth of depravity these idiot bobble head shows will go to. Case in point, Lou Dobbs tonight and the poll pushed by the fill in host:
Would you knock someone to the ground for:
- A $400 laptop
- A flat-screen TV
- An Xbox 360
- All of the above
- None of the above

THIS is news? This is featured on CNN, flagship cable news station? This is even appropriate for adults? You've got to be kidding me. Would you knock someone to the ground? Why not just ask a couple of these questions off the top of my head:
Would you rape someone if you wouldn't get caught?
Would you pick your nose in public to gross someone out?
Would you mug an old lady if you knew she had $1,000 on her?
Would you hide Saddam if he gave you $100,000?

It's a race to the bottom where morals are just plain quaint. No wonder people are uniformed sheep parroting Republican talking points, just like Ann Coulter did today on the very same program asking this idiotic question.

More on Annie later when the transcript is posted. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go take a shower after watching that bile flow from her mouth...
