Where do I start with this stupid bullshit report from ABC-5 reporter Nick Foley on the possibility of Johnny Manziel buying land to build a house in Brecksville, Ohio? Do I start with the fact that the source(s) for the story are rich people in a subdivision who won’t go on TV, but say Manziel is looking at land in their neighborhood? Do I start with Foley finding some lady at a restaurant to respond to what this all means to the restaurant? Or what about the woman Foley runs down for comment in a parking lot?
Or do I start with the fact that the anchor throws it to Foley with “news” that Manziel might be buying a house, but would actually be building a house.
Look, ABC-5 is all fucked up with this story and someone at the station didn’t ax this stupidity before it ran. That’s what you’re getting from local news: Morons who don’t know when to tell morons to go find something else to investigate.
Instead, viewers are given a story about a rumor (HT:@).
Meanwhile, Manziel’s girlfriend has been posting photos on Instagram from Johnny’s apartment at The 9, the most prestigious place to live right now in downtown Cleveland. Don’t worry Foley, I’ll just give you something to actually report. How about a story on this place Johnny’s living and a place where LeBron is rumored to have a condo. Report on that, bro.
Here you go Foley…John’s dime enjoying the view from the condo:
Find this carpet, Foley!
