Rise and Shine --- Stop yelling

Good Morning and welcome back to the Internet!

The normal course of business in the morning is to have the television in the newsroom tuned to the local news. We start out with Channel 3, then move over to Channel 29. Fox29 is the only station to run a local program throughout the morning.
That's where it all falls apart. Instead of reporting the news, some of the Fox 'personalities' went to the school that told them to yell everything.
Hey, you know, if you yell something than it must be true.
It seems a lot of TV news personalities subscribe to this kind of 'journalism.'
Check out Chris Matthews or Sean Hannity or Steve Keeley.
Whether they are talking about the economy, the president, teacher unions or even the Eagles, these guys like to yell. And yell. And yell.
It's like they have the volume turned down on their ear pieces. I wonder if the cue cards are all written in CAPITAL LETTERS?
How about we turn down the yelling and just report the news?
