The last time we checked in with the legal cases of those Mainliners, there was an illegal wine ring to uncover. So what is it this time? Animal carcasses. Ya know, pretty similar. According to the Daily News, CBS3 is being sued by Main Line Realtor Andrea Straub for defamation, emotional distress, and more, “saying […]
Philadelphia geography lessons: CBS Philly needs them. The first item refers to an incident at 61st & Market, not exactly Southwest Philly. The error in the second item is fairly obvious. Oy, there’s nothing like The Worst News to give you those 14th Street Blues.
CBS3, The Worst News, To Broadcast NYE Fireworks Because There’s Nothing Quite As Disappointing As Fireworks On TVFriday, December 28th, 2012
Planning on staying home alone on New Year’s Eve with nothing but broadcast television to keep you company? Two things: Jesus, man. And, a programming note: Celebrate 2013 — a live broadcast of Penn’s Landing’s New Year’s Eve fireworks spectacular — will air Monday, December 31st, 11:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. on CBS3, aka the […]
Now, a few things about this: Though it’s very true that Action News (RIP) has long had the market cornered on fear-mongering, anti-news, sheer stupidity, we have still contended for years that CBS3 is the very worst local television news available in the Philly market. Why CBS3 and not Action News? Because with Action News, […]
“South Philadelphia Woman Finds Image of Jesus On Window Blinds.” Annnnd scene. Jesus Christ, indeed.
In the wake of an Inquirer story we posted about last week, local goth promoter Patrick Rodgers was the subject of this piece on CBS3 news — also known around here as “The Worst News” — about how he flipped the script on Wells Fargo. We would have loved to have been a fly on […]
A reader sends along this note and the following screen grab: Snow plow death. 4 o’clock news. Obviously I’m having a snow day. Thank you for the bloody killer snow plow graphic. I had to rewind and take a pic. I’m not the arbiter of good taste but like, dude, a lady friggin died. We […]
If it bleeds gives you a handjob with its mouth, it leads. Apparently, CBS3, easily the worst local TV news in the city, led with the Hipster Grifter last night, so it seems like we have at least one thing in common with them. (And don’t think we’re not doing some soul-searching today over that […]
Previously: Philebrity To CBS3 Copy Editor: Groan
Early reports indicate that so far, they’ve nabbed Joan of Arc, Amelia Earhart, Ophelia and in a very rare “get,” Eve, from the bible. Authorities are confident that this is just the beginning in a series of heroine busts. CBS3: You Don’t Even Understand What It Is You’re Doing Wrong, Do You? Previously: CBS3: Hates […]
As hot as she is, Lane seems like a high-maintenance pain in the ass. During sweeps week a couple years ago, she did a weeklong counseling session with Doctor Phil over her busted marriage, which I recall lasted a little over a year. The last time I saw such a pathetic, simultaneous cry for help, […]
With a side of Larry “Golden Showers” Mendte on the side, yo.
Would you trust this woman? Neither would we, pal, neither would we. But to tens of thousands fearmongering moms in the Del-Val, Stephanie Stahl is the go-to gal for news about nagging prostates, diabetic shock inflicted by Fun Dip, and other modern miracles. So imagine our glee when we caught wind of this whole “SPARKS […]

Comcast SportsNet (up for the Mid-Atlantic Emmy for “Station Excellence”), NBC Philadelphia, CBS3, WHYY, and pretty much everybody in Philadelphia’s regional media network, and Temple, Drexel, and pretty much everybody in Philadelphia’s college network besides Penn, are all up for Mid-Atlantic Emmys. Nomination ceremonies were held at three locations including Philly’s Stadium Holiday Inn to […]
Salty Water Taffy May Be New Jersey’s State Candy, While We Pennsylvanians Are Getting Closer To Having A State GunThursday, June 5th, 2014
Have you ever wondered to yourself what all of those state governments do when they aren’t doing anything important? Of course you don’t, you were around for the Year of the Bible. But did anyone learn from this? No, and while some states spend time doing kinda cute things, others try to name official state […]
The hell with Beescraper, how about Interstate Ninety-Hive: Yesterday, in a scene straight out of the nightmare of The Wicker Man‘s Edward Malus, a tractor trailer containing twenty million bees overturned, and the bees swarmed on an I-95 on-ramp in Newark, DE. Luckily, according to CBS3, the Delaware State Police have a “Bee Swarm Removal […]

>>> Though its SmartCard remains a work in progress, SEPTA is being very proactive in remedying a question you’ve probably been asking yourself for years: “Why isn’t everything on this whole damned train spooge/“soda”/whatever-resistant and able to just be hosed down at the end of the day like it’s a bathhouse?” That’s right, say goodbye […]
Another new year, another holiday season gone, another bleak-ass January and another go-round with the thing called Blue Monday — a creation of marketers and pseudoscience designed to make you believe that this, today, is the most depressing day of the year. To which we (and plenty others) say: Bullshit. Why, this isn’t even the […]
