Sorry to use the crudity of text slang but this is a PG rated blog.  Today I found a story on one of our local news sites here in Salt Lake that justhas me shaking my head.  Apparently there is nothing, I repeat absolutely nothing that is happening in Utah so they get to report this.  You can read the text here but I will tell you the gist of it.

Apparently it is big news when the State Attorney General has cancer.  It is in extremely bad taste to announce that fact in freaking YOU TUBE video that was released by the State of Utah’s Attorney Generals office! And as if that isn’t bad enough, the news gets invited to report on the fact that said Attorney General had surgery to remove part of his colon.  I was scared to even look for a video of that, it is probably out there.

The end of the story not only gives his location but hints at his further treatments.  Come on already, let the guy have SOME modicum of privacy.  As a matter fact I don’t know why I am writing about it….I am just genuinely shocked that this was an actual news story.  Yet another reason to NOT get into politics or public office.

What do you guys think? I want opinions on this one.  I also want some questions to be asked at askacoot@cantankerousoldcoots.com!  Saturday is not that far away!

  1. Poor taste? Yes…but the media hasn’t invaded his privacy…he invited them into the situation:

    “Come on already, let the guy have SOME modicum of privacy.”

    HIS OFFICE released the YouTube video…the story wasn’t dug up out of his private life.

    He’s a dumbass for creating the story…the media are dumbasses for running it.

    Equal stupidity all the way around.

  2. Hadn’t thought of it quite that way but seriously, the “I have cancer” you tube video is still stupid.

  3. It’s publicity. He’s a politician. The media are clowns.

  4. And he wants to be known for that?


    My respect for Paris Hilton increases again. At least she has something worth looking at.

  5. Dave…pick someone besides Hilton to move up your respect ladder…someone who at least shows rhab respect. Hilton is garbage…and soon won’t even be worth looking at with the crap she shoves in her body.

  6. Careful there, Bob. I voted the Ron Paul/Paris Hilton ticket in 2008.

  7. You should take part in a contest for one of the best blogs on the web. I will recommend this site! ahh Happy New Year!
