Exclamation Sportbikes tonight on CBS Evening News! (5:30pm PST)

Sportbikes tonight on CBS Evening News! (5:30pm PST)

Just saw a preview of a story they are going to air on the CBS
Nightly News with Dan Rather from 5:30 to 6:00pm (PST). It 's on
sportbikes and how crazy the people who ride these bikes are.
It don't look like it's going to be a positive image for us. I think
is will portray us as speed demons and crazy fools. It will be
on Thursday 9-25. Check it out if you can. I'll be recording it with my Tivo.

WARNING
If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned...... Tyler

Robert I noted this CBS thing on another board last evening. From what they picked up in advance is the media is classing stunting on the public hwys as "racing" or "competition". Any in a while you will know better.

In a way yes or no, but he could have kept his trap shut about no cars on the road at the time!!!!!!!?????????

Come on guys did you really expect anything unbiased to come out of the liberal news media. If you think so then you must be kidding yourself. Stories like that are what sell the press and make the money to pay them the big bucks. I saw a video of it and it was what I would have expected, some squids wanted to make it on TV and they did and CBS was all to willing to oblige. Here comes more legislation against us innocent bystanders.

Me Big Brother, me watching you

The article is more or less a transcript of the story, which is available at the same site...Click video. It's in real video format.

Also, take a look under "Sponsored links". There's a link there to "Motorcycle Stunt Videos", as if they are trying to encourage the very behavior they are berating. Always looking for that next story, I guess.
