Those morons on BBC Breakfast News.

    The BBC obviously tries very, very hard to find such vacuous people to dribble banal idiocy with such assurance and certainty.

    Here's Charlie Stayt and Louise Minchin. Have a good look at them:

    I turned on this morning to catch the last of the election results. But was treated to this pair. Here's what they actually said. This is a true and accurate report.

    The one on the left said: "Owls don't have legs, do they?" The one on the right replied: "Not in my world".

    What can I say?

    They're awful, plastic smiles and far too happy for the AM. And he's always copping a sly look at her tits.

    He's better than Bill Turnbull, Breakfast's faux avuncular bumbling twat.

    She's not a patch on the eminently more shaggable Susanna Reid.

    BBC Breakfast, which is also broadcast on the BBC News channel, makes me desire a massive and dreadful disaster to afflict this country at about 6am one day, just so I can watch the two presenters flounder in their own inadequacy.

    I find never watching it helps. Everyone probably has their own coping mechanism though.

    I don't know if it was breakfast but it was BBC where they said "it's hard to remember that plants are actually living things" in regards to water shortages and their implications. I mean :facepalm:

    I fancy Susanna, but she's just as dim and vacuous as the others.

    Great, isn't it? "Not in my world". Yes. That says it all.

    So is your complaint that they are thick, or that they aren't fanciable enough?

    Reminds me of an editor I worked with a while ago on a kids' natural history book. 'Humans have the same number of hairs on their bodies as chimpanzees' was a line she questioned. 'Please correct this mistake,' she said. 'But it's true - humans have the same number of hairs as chimps,' I replied. 'Well I certainly don't!' she wrote back.

    Is that @ me? My complaint is that they're all insipid dullards who warble drivel. As per my OP. In response to QoG, I noted that I find Susanna physically attractive, but she is as much a vapid imbecile as her colleagues.

    Awful show. Sometimes I watch it weekday mornings and I want to throw things at the telly and yell SOME OF US ARE NOT MORONS, YOU KNOW. WE HAVE WORKING BRAINS AND EVERYTHING.

    Loads of BBC shows are heading that way. Horizon used to be great, I remember it used to look at some pretty complicated topics, now it's all vacuous drivel about our shopping baskets and everything explained to us like we're about three and don't know anything about anything.

    Yep. I agree totally. They always seem to try to force a narrative onto it too, and say right at the end what they should have said right at the beginning.

    She probably also thinks her husband has more muscles than her son.

    The monstrous psychopathic synthetic cringing anodyne vapidity of the presenters in breakfast news (and also the WWWWWWOonne show) makes me just want to tear heads off things or simply give-up and die. I think it's meant to have that effect, to punish the poorly-motivated to end it all or get-out the door.

    It never affected me so before, but something about television now just makes me morbidly depressed or otherwise wish some terrible catastrophe to befall the human race. Strangely the internet does the opposite, even though it holds greater horrors, and gives me hope for the soul, wit and future of humanity. Fancy that.

    She has a degree in philosophy and a masters in politics IIRC. A friend of a friend was in the same class as her.

    Clever and good looking but still stupid enough to get up at 3am to present BBC Breakfast.
