Maltard Word of the Day

HEZ-bin: a male spouse (Example: "My hezbin mows the yard.")

Oh, SuxNews, you claim to be so hip to technology, what with your connections on "Facebick" and what-not.

Why, then, is this story on your "web-channel"?

Ann McIntire's repeated references to an Omaha-born "iTunes app," suggest that one of the station's youngest on-air hipsters doesn't realize that there's no such animal. There are iTunes—songs and videos—sold on the iTunes store. And there are iPhone apps—assorted games and utilities designed for use on the iPhone and iPod Touch. They are two different things.

Having reporters who know that would at least give your ridiculous promos the veneer of credibility.

We've apparently been asleep at the wheel.

Nevertheless, we are delighted to note that the name of one Farrah "FUBAR" Fazal no longer stains the "News Team" page of KETV's website.

It's hard to imagine a bigger improvement for that station, which may now be as good an operation as Omaha will ever see.

Dumbest remarks made by local media types about college football on Saturday:

Radio Blabberer Matt Davison: "The unknowns are always a question mark."

WOWT's Merlin Klaus: "Northern (Iowa) is getting hard today."

An alert reader says it best...
I am surprised you did not do a commentary on Sux News's 20 min love fest on Dave Webber's "last day" even though he has been on more since his retirement than he has the past 6 months! 8 min of news, 2 min of flowers, and 20 min of dave webber!
Yeah. It doesn't make a lot of sense, does it? More great planning by market leader in cluelessness.

We've been making a concerted effort to avoid watching the Channel Sux morning program the past few weeks. Watching Jimmy Thiedlecki and his little sidekick Maltard step on each other's lines, giggle at their own imagined cleverness, and mangle the English language makes us want to gouge out our eardrums.

But after hitting a wrong button on the remote this morning, we ended up at Sux just in time to hear Jimmy make reference to the "Bob Kerrey Memorial Bridge," which means that either the former senator has died without anyone but Jimmy noticing, or Jimmy doesn't know what memorial means. Which do you think is the case?
