    We know Wolf Blitzer and Anderson Cooper suck at Jeopardy. But Rick Sanchez is possibly the biggest moron anchoring cable news today with the possible exception of Joy Behar... who is also on CNN.

    While reporting on the eruption of a volcano in Iceland, Rickie had this to say.


    "When you think of a volcano, you think of Hawaii and long words like that. You don't think of Iceland. You think it's too cold to have a volcano there."

    No, Rick. We don't think that, because we're not stupid. On the other hand, since you were addressing a CNN audience, your assessment of what your audience thinks might well be correct.

    After all, they also believe that Obama gave them a tax cut.

    I'm going to go with 50% idiotic and 50% boring.

    Not a good combination.

    Is it likely that water goes downhill because of gravitational forces? Is it likely that the sun rises in the east due to the direction of the rotation of the earth? Might it be the case that bears do what they do because they are too big to be potty trained?

    Never forget the king of all sleazeballs, Larry King.

    Apparently, in his interview with Pamela Anderson, he asked her a lot of inappropriate questions, one of which was "do you have sex standing up"?

    Their main anchor is gay (Anderson Cooper), and has CNN's new years celebration with a fag hag known as Kathy Griffin.

    Lou Dobbs used to be there, but his racism and intolerance led to him being fired.

    Nancy Grace is a bitchy hose beast who won't admit when she's wrong. Remember the Duke players she grilled on her show? When it was proven that they DIDN'T DO IT, she offered no apology. She's just a bitchy hag that thinks she can do no wrong.

    Jane Velez Mitchell is also a bitchy woman. Her voice is grating, and she always takes her points too far.

    Joy Behar is a gossip and kinda cynical. Also bitchy.

    With fags, sexual degenerates and a whole bunch of bitch women, as well as a village idiot in Sanchez, how the fuck can ANYONE consider CNN "the most trusted name in news"?

    And......you know.......I used to think that Soledad O'Brien and Wolf Blitzer were intelligent until I saw them get their asses handed to them on Jeopardy. The only one that even acted like he might know how to play was Anderson Cooper, and he was still the lowest score.

    Nope, with that kind of crew, you'll never know what you get.

    Anderson Cooper doesn't suck at Jeopardy. He is the only cable news show host to have won Jeopardy. He completely obliterated a former congressman and a CNBC correspondent on his first Jeopardy appearance. On his second appearance comedian Cheech Marin was faster on the buzzer and built up a lead by snapping up the really moronic questions like the one asking you to identify the thing with the bulb you use to drizzle meat juice over a turkey as a turkey baster. Cooper had thousands and was tied for second place at the end of the second round then finished tied for second with zero dollars after strategically risking it all and losing it when all three players got final jeopardy wrong.

    The MSNBC show hosts Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann who have played lost in their appearances.

    The only FOX News host willing to chance a Celebrity Jeopardy appearance so far is Gretchen Carlson. She truly did suck. She finished the second round thousands in the red, far behind her competition Olbermann and Al Franken. It's Celebrity Jeopardy so she was gifted a bit of money to be able to compete in final jeopardy. She came in a distant third.

    He came in third place, hardly a great game of Jeopardy or demonstration of his prowess.

    Fuck........turkey baster? How could you miss that? Fucking Thanksgiving for crying out loud.

    At least.........if you cooked with the family rather than letting the help do all the work like the silver spoon douchebag asshole.

    Tying for second place with ZERO? What kind of standards do you set anyway?

    Anchors are supoposed to be dead weight and create drag.
