    News Of The World



    I thought I'd start a thread for all of the news stuff that people might want to share without having to start a thread for each item.

    I've noticed that some news stories get posted, get about 10 or 11 responses and then drop away. Here's a place for them to reside.

    I didn't think this should really go in the Boston Marathon Bombing thread, so...

    Drugs found on a tour bus used by Justin Bieber

    Swedish police say they have found drugs on board a tour bus used by Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber.

    Police spokesman Lars Bystrom said, "a small amount of drugs and a stun gun were found when officers raided the empty bus parked under the Globen concert venue in Stockholm," where the singer was performing on Wednesday.

    He declined to identify the drug, saying it had been "sent to a laboratory for an analysis".

    No-one has been arrested.

    Police acted after smelling marijuana coming from inside the bus when it was parked outside the hotel where the singer was staying.

    The drug squad was alerted and searched the bus after it carried a group of people to the concert venue.

    Police say there are no suspects, and won't be taking the matter any further.

    Bieber is in Stockholm on the European leg of his Believe world tour.

    When he was in London in March the Canadian singer caused controversy when he was late on stage for a concert at the 02 arena.

    A few days later he made headlines again when he confronted photographers outside his central London hotel.

    TV Ratings: 'Duck Dynasty' Tops 'American Idol' With Record-Breaking Finale

    Of course the conservative folks in the comments section is going crazy about how the success of this silly show somehow shows that the whole country wants Leave to the Beaver 60's backwards TV programming.

    It appears that someone forgot to tell them that there are 300+ million people in this country and 9.6 million is only a fraction.

    It's not that I think cable TV is loaded with better options. No, cable tv is downright sorry. Mostly commercials and low brow reality tv programming like this show and others.

    Well, I'm not saying the show is the worst thing on TV. Far from it, actually.

    But I turn on the history channel and I see.... Larry the Cable Guy. Then I see the Kardashians, Jersey Shore.... I just don't see how this becomes interesting viewing. Plus you still got Jerry Springer, Maury and MTV. eh...

    those Duck Dynasty folks make me happeh happeh happeh


    I get so much enjoyment out of watching this show....it's faked a bit but those guys are the real deal Redneck success stories

    I have spent my entire life surrounded by people like this and watching this show does entertain me soooooo much more than the Kartrashians

    where else on TV can you learn to skin a bullfrog or fry a squirrel?

    those are valuable skills, Jack!

    Some of the stuff they have put on TV the last 10 years... I think it's really the last 10-12 years that the quality of the programming has really went downhill. One of my favorite shows was Forensic Flies, but reality tv basically booted it off the air.

    I love watching Duck Dynasty.

    There is nothing real about "reality tv" but the Robertson family is the real deal IMO. What you see is what you get and something tells me that they're really like what they portray on the show. I like how the patriarch says the blessing at meal time at the conclusion of each episode. Coming together at the dinner table at the end of the day with family and being healthy is what it is all about. This show is a bright light among all the dark garbage that is television in the US now days.

    Do you think Springer was the real start of the downfall? And that hideous "dating show" that he runs on the game show channel. Baggage? I remember that I liked Love Connection as a kid... But damn that Baggage show is more phony than Jerry's first show. That guy has been a parasite for years.

    I don't know if there was the kind of garbage that Springer championed before him but HIS show was definitely a low point for our country. That shit was utter tripe and I can't believe that people tuned into it on a daily basis. I don't know about this "Baggage" but just the name itself sounds like the same garbage he makes his living out of. Then again he did pay a hooker with a 20 dollar check. That tells you all you need to know about him? What mayor in America doesn't have 20 bucks in cash?

    Be glad that you never saw it. You're better off. I wasn't so lucky.

    It's a stupid, really scripted and clearly fake show. It's a blind date show, but nothing meaningful is ever discussed. It boils down to exposing your personal flaws/quirks on air and people asking each other if they love to have sex and how often. It almost always boils down to stuff that is sex related.

    before Springer there was Phil Donahue and Oprah talking about issues

    and before them there was Merv Griffin Mike Douglas and Dinah Shore doing the celebrity thing


    once Springer came on it changed talk shows forever.......even Oprah fell to their level for awhile until she came to her senses and publicly announced that she was not going to do it anymore


    but MTV's "Real World" started the down fall of tv....soon everyone was looking for these cheap shows

    I guess you could argue that cable ruined television....suddenly there was so much more programming needed to fill all that time and a need for cheaper original programming....so reality tv, game shows, tv clip shows and talent shows filled the airwaves
