    It's been more or less 5 years since the first time I laid eyes, accidently on Nancy Grace and I remember my initial gut reaction like it was yesterday. Repulsion. Knee jerk revulsion. I was transfixed by the poison dripping off the lips of that ugly blonde chipmunk-looking harpy but at first I couldn't quite put my finger on why.

    Ugly? Yes she is that. In a pinched Appalanchian- inbred way that's hard to miss when it happens to a homo sapien. Shrill? Oh God yes, like bloody fingrnails on a gore incrusted chalkboard making the experience of haviing her assault your eardrums not only an aural horror but also one that evokes dirty images on the back of your eyeballs long after you've changed the channel and can no longer hear that screechy shrieky little self righteous voice of hers.
    But it took time to figure out why, aside from all her vision-challenging unpleasantness, that her annoying voice box shortcomings should make me want to squeeze my eyes shut and bite down on my tongue as a form of punishment and after years of coming in CLOSE to why NG insults me to my core I heard it expressed tonight on NEWSROOM. The little show that could.

    I knew Nancy and Bill and Rachel and Sean etal were something pernicious and new in the world of broadcast viewing and I also knew the 24 hr newscycle had fathered some ugly ducklings, Nancy Grace being one of the ugliest by ANYBODY'S standards but tonight when they said 'forget everything you know about news' as a way of explaining this phenom it rung so true I nearly dropped my ice cream spoon and spilled Butter Pecan Crunch on my bedspread.

    You say what you want to about Newsroom. Hate it if it offends you, criticise it for being preachy, put it down if it gets a little too close to home and nudges your comfort level but they are using real names and real situations here folks and they ain't pulling any punches.

    They called Nancy DisGrace a vomit-inducing, crusty vagina-ed bridge troll and put their finger on why.
    You gotta love dat folksies. You jes' gotta love dat.:clap2:
