CNN, news or entertainment?

So I'm looking for news on the energy bill that is supposed to be voted on shortly. Considering the magnitude of the effects of this bill you would think it might at least be worth a story? Looking at the US news the top stories as I type this are as follows:
* Time: The death of Peter Pan
* Farrah Fawcett dies | Remembering Farrah
* Sanford plans to return to work Friday
* Sanford's wife: His career not my concern
* Small businesses thrive with woman's help
* WPXI: Steelers owner to be Ireland ambassador
* Church video shows 'casting out' of gay 'demon'
* Officials: Crash like Metro not likely elsewhere
* Blacks in poll: Relations no better with Obama


WTF, mostly fluff... No mention of the bill itself. Same with the front page and only under politics do I find anything even related.

* Sanford plans to return to work Friday
* Sanford's wife: 'His career is not a concern of mine'
* Commentary: Don't get outraged at Sanford
* Obama makes eleventh-hour push for energy bill
* Holder urges senators to expand hate crimes bill
* Senate committee cuts health reform costs
* Palin hits back at 'malicious' photo
* Scotus dismisses English-deficient students' case
* Ahmadinejad calls Obama meddler


As has been reported Walter Cronkite was recently hospitalized, apprently the doctors have found it was brought on by the current state of the "news".

It's not even entertainment. Probably the worst 24 hr 'news' station in existence. When I was into all of that political bullshit I used to watch MSNBC and Fox. I figured somewhere in between the left leaning and right leaning news was the truth. I've given all of that horseshit up and just live my life. Politicians don't give a dam if any of us are alive or dead so I don't bother wasting my time listening to their lies.

FOX News.com has it on the front page. H.R. 2454 has not gone to a vote yet as it is being put on hold. Dems afraid they don't have the votes. 2454 passed the test vote 217-205 in order to pass it to the House floor BUT opposition is quickly growing. Call your Congressman and tell him you DO NOT want it passed. Call soon! Charlie Dent in my district has already stated he will oppose it.
