Besides being unabashedly liberal, Yahoo News is always interesting for indicators of “slow news days.” Usually, the headlines on such days will be “relationship” articles, and usually relationship articles that boil down to saying, a) guys are jerks, b) you can’t trust your significant other or c) reasons to break up (very positive, that).
It got really bad this weekend, when for a few days one of the top headlines on yahoo was a Yahoo Answers article, “What are those little things on the ‘f’ and ‘j’ keys for?” Are you kidding me? Has our society gotten that stupid????
So, today’s “We can’t find anything better to post” headline on Yahoo is:
“Scandal Claims Illinois Politician.”
Oh, and the sun came up this morning. News at 11.
