Things Rarely Explained on LA News

Nearly every time I watch TV news in Los Angeles, I hear one of these. But without the Internets, a Newbie like me would have to guess what they were all about.

Respectfully Yours in Safety and Service,

DOWN WITH JILLIAN BARBIERE

But from our country.

Might be a good bandwagon for Pat Buchanan to join. He seems to be all about random removals of people from the country. - AVN

Seriously, I do not need to see the low-rent Barbie tell me the news in the morning while she lamely banters with the other low-rent Barbie and some sort of automaton from the planet Fake-oh. It's truly embarrassing to know that morning show is so popular.
