- NBC News Assholes-In-Programming Alert -

Yoko Ono is furious at "Dateline NBC" for marking the 25th anniversary of husband John Lennon's murder by giving airtime to his killer.

You have got to be kidding me.

I'm a firm believer that it's important to hear both sides of every position. Both sides should have a voice. The Klan should be heard, if for no other reason so our children can see how insane they are. Hussein deserves his trial before we cut off his head and piss in the stump. And yes, every murderer should be given the opportunity to express what demon drove them to the act.

But not 25 years later, after we've heard it all. Not on the anniversary of his killing of a man of peace who did nothing but try to add a little love into the world. And certainly not in an attempt to get ratings by any means necessary.

There are days I loathe being in the media. This is one of them. Makes me glad I got out of the news business years ago. Because all it is just that. A business.

Screw NBC. This is insulting and pointless. Kinda like the rest of their news programming...
