Why mainstream news outlets blow, #38,391

In a story filed under the category of "Health," ABC News relays this claim:
"Anyone who is married to Christie Brinkley and has to masturbate at all is probably a sex addict," said Doug Weiss, a licensed psychologist and the executive director of the Heart to Heart Counseling Center in Colorado.
The article, with little more depth of content than what you've already read, wraps around a smutty photo montage with the caption: "Christie Brinkley's soon-to-be ex-husband Peter Cook fancied pornography and the Internet over his supermodel wife."

There are several ways to dissect this reportage emetic, but my general thoughts are: What kind of man-hating, idiotic journalist parrots this tripe? What sort of "expert" offers such an inept analysis of human sexuality? And what kind of editor passes this tabloid garbage off as news?

I guess if you're married to a woman who used to be a model--even ten years in--there's no way you could be sexually frustrated short of full-blown deviancy. I daresay this expert could use a sweeping roundhouse to the nuts.

The story reminds me of a line: "Find the most beautiful woman on earth, and somewhere out there, I promise you, there's a guy sick of f---ing her."

Crude? Sure. But when it comes to the truth of the matter, it's a fair sight better than the clowns at ABC are doing.
