I have a few distinct reactions to this:

1) This is why I don’t watch television news. TWO minutes of a 22-minute broadcast devoted to this. They do a 2-minute run down of the headlines. Then let’s say another six minutes devoted to weather. Sports, two minutes.

2) Aside from her nonchalance about the domestic violence and almost being killed, this is sorta awesome.

    The idea and the way it was presented is light hearted and even kind of funny. However, the idea that her boyfriend tried to kill her was just unbelievably sad.

    Yeah, this just makes me incredibly sad. Too close for comfort, definitely.
