formal apology to cnn, kick in the nuts to bbc

i think i owe an appology to cnn for singling out their reportage of non-news. in the interest of complete transparency, bbc loves to do it too, like in this story about insect gambling in hong kong.

A police spokesman said the Far East Friends of Crickets Social Club was raided following a surveillance operation by undercover officers.

Cricket fighting is legal in Hong Kong, but gambling on the result is not.
Cricket fights, which were a popular pastime in the 1950s and 60s, are quite rare in modern Hong Kong.

For one thing, the widespread use of pesticides has reduced the availability of suitable fighters. [ed: hilarious.]

It is reported that a champion cricket can cost more than $2,500.

bbc: what the fuck! you guys have got to focus up here! WAR, OKAY? THERE'S A WAR. AND GENOCIDE (presumably). AND THE OLSEN TWINS ARE IN COLLEGE. do you know what kind of panties they're wearing today? i sure don't, because you're not fucking telling me bbc! get with the fucking program.
