A Trip to the Dentist

I had my six-month checkup this morning. My dentist has installed TVs in each of the little offices, so while the hygienist was rooting around in my mouth I got to watch Good Morning America's roundup of the latest happenings on I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here. I'm not sure which of those was more uncomfortable. Oh, if you know who Spencer is, please drop a note in the comments.

In all the places they've installed TVs, I can't think of one where it's an improvement.

The CNN blaring at the gate in the airport? No thank you - and certainly not if you're there long enough to hear the same 30-minute news cycle repeated several times.

The health infomercial in the waiting room at the doctor's office? Please.

The dubbed-in-Spanish version of some godawful American commando movie where they all chant "Estados Unidos! Estados Unidos!" at the end that turned my bus ride from Latacunga to Quito from mildy unpleasant to excruciatingly painful? No, no, no, gracias, no!

Yeah, the TVs in airports are the worst. Half the time the they're tuned to CNN, so I sit there listening to left-wing crap while complaining loudly to everyone within earshot about how the airport's run by a bunch of commie pinkos. And the other half of the time the TVs are tuned to Fox News, so I sit there listening to some hippie whining about how the airport is run by a bunch of jackbooted right-wing bigots. It's a no-win situation - why don't they just show ESPN?

Most reasonable people recognize that Fox News is the right-wing news channel, MSNBC is the left-wing news channel, and CNN is a channel that doesn't actually report news anymore so much as solicit "iReports" and incoherent email commentaries from the general public while occasionally supplying breathless coverage of what Ashton Kutcher just wrote on Twitter.
