No...it's not a joke...it's real.

If you have ever wondered what it would look like if the most awkward people from your church decided to combine forces with the most annoying people at your work, a few of your old socially "off" high school teachers, and maybe a couple polygamists, to produce a news program? Well here ya go. When one of my friends first saw this sad little show she thought it was a joke or a news spoof. Not so. It's just incredibly awkward and embarrassingly amateur. I don't consider myself mean-spirited by nature, but I just couldn't keep this in any longer. There is nothing really distinctive about the clip below compared to other clips of their program but it will just give you a taste of what we are dealing with here. There is more on youtube if you care to torture yourself.

Yes We Did

"And if I had one wish: if Dr. King could have just been there for a second in time, would have made my heart rejoice. And so it was kind of duo-fold - his ascension into leadership and the price that was paid to get him there."

Election night: Jesse Jackson who was standing beside Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. when he was assassinated in 1968. "He earned those tears."
