When I was younger, nothing drove me crazier than when Saturday morning cartoons were interrupted by my parents turning the channel to watch the news.
I hated the news. It was a bunch of political gibberish and stories that didn't interest me in the least.

Who else could enjoy watching someone in a suit reading from a teleprompter?

Wanna know what my favorite thing to do in the morning is? Sip my coffee (or in my case, french vanilla creamer with a touch of coffee) with my hubby next to me and watch the News. In fact, our favorite is Robin Meade. It's fast paced and covers a wide range of topics quickly. (It doesn't hurt that my husband thinks she's drop dead gorgeous.)
Well, my oldest son recently discovered 'Top Shot' on Netflix. It's a series from television about professional marksmen (and markswomen?). He loves it and gets so frustrated when, while watching it, we come in and do the 'presto-channel change-o' to watch our news.
