Living in Florida as I do, you eventually get used to the fact that if something marginally news-worthy happens that local TV producers will always try to jazz up their reporting on it by finding the most redneck/hoodrat/stoner local eyewitness they can in order to slob the whole thing over with the kind of local [...]

I’ll always loved this tune — but every now and then (especially if you haven’t seen this video in a while) you kind of realize that if anyone other than Michael were to try this approach on a woman on a city street corner in the middle of the night all you’d really end up [...]

Bolstered perhaps by the recent hoax scandal surrounding college football star Manti Te’o, the popularity of the MTV reality show Catfish has seriously taken off.
