    talking heads....you know who they are....i dont have to name them. anyone paid to go on tv and entertian is a talking head to me....news casters included.

    why do you watch them? is it for news or information? do you feel that all the shows have a bias or agenda? why do you watch someone willing to promote a partisan solution to problems? do you really feel they are a valid news source?

    I watch my local news to stay infomed of local news.


    I watch the Daily Show and The Colbert Report because they are both spot on, the DS with politics mixed with humor, who doesn't love that, and the CR because he does satire so well.

    Because they were one of the first new wave bands combining elements of punk rock, avant-garde, pop, funk, world music and art rock. It's no wonder that in 2002, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
