Channel 3 hits rock bottom

How can cultural elitists like ourselves put TV in the Culture category? Well, where the hell else is it going to fit?

Jeffrey Dahmer used to get love letters in jail. From women.

Yeah, that woman could use some help.
And nope, that definitely isn't Channel 3000's finest hour. Whoever greenlighted that story needs to do some soul-searching.

Imagine the conversations her tattoo artist has had to endure.

sadly she's not the only crazy person in that story.

“I have people telling me that I should die for supporting Jahar, that I should be shot, I should be raped, I should be this, I should be that. I don't care,” Clary said.


How about everyone just do the right thing and ignore her? Give her a big box of stationery, a list of controversial criminals, and let her do her part to support the US Post Office.

Yes, this. What Francis D. says. Exactly.

Hey, DogBoy: I'm not entirely sure what motivates your over the top distaste for Heinen since I don't see a huge qualitative difference with the other mawkish local media outlets, but at least on his Channel3000 website I haven't encountered a dumbass rollover ad for "Women's Health Digest" and other idiotic web sites. Here in the rarefied atmosphere to TDPF, my first click on each trip brings up that sort of Internet garbage. Wottsamattah? Did nasty old Neil make disparaging remarks about one of your rightwing nutcake pals?

Or are you secretly Greg Jeschke, vacuous news drone par excellence?

Perhaps i've been too harsh with Neil Heinen. But, it is Heinen's opinion pieces that distinguish channel 3 from the other "mawkish" stations. I hold them to a higher standard.

mawk·ish
ˈmôkiSH/
adjective
1.
sentimental in a feeble or sickly way.
"a mawkish poem"
synonyms: sentimental, oversentimental, maudlin, cloying, sickly, saccharine, sugary, oversweet, syrupy, nauseating; More
archaicdialect
having a faint sickly flavor.
"the mawkish smell of warm beer"


Do the other stations have Heinen-like counterparts?

As for going after R's, I don't see any bias on Neil's part. Just recently he was exasperated with both Ellis and Erpenbach.

Added: I seem to be immune to the women's health rollover ad. There is another topic about that somewhere.

Boston has come off as a really cool city in all this coverage. You gotta love their accents, and they are definitely full of heart.
