MTV - Must see...

Tom Shales - TV Preview: MTV's 'How's Your News?' Gives Disabled Reporters Spotlight - "As viewers are invited to laugh with the reporters rather than at them, the non-disabled people who appear on the show have fun with them rather than make fun of them. Contrary to typical dramatic depictions of 'special' souls in supposedly sensitive movies, these disabled folk have senses of humor even about their own situations and circumstances. They are in on the joke; they are telling the joke; they are part of the greater joke being played on us all."

"Special", "inspirational", - not! I need to see this show...

MTV...What channel is that? I'll have to ask E.

I'm getting so old!
