It doesn’t even premiere until summer, and we’re already learning things from Meghan McCain’s new talk show on Pivot. It’s news to us, for one, that there is (or will be) a cable channel called Pivot. Don’t blame us for missing that news tidbit; it’s not so easy for young hipsters like ourselves to keep up with the news these days. Like McCain told media buyers at the unveiling of her show, “We’re told … that young people can’t have news because we’re just tweeting all the time, and that’s just bullshit.”

Ace of Spades, for one, is relieved that young people will finally have access to news thanks to McCain.

Nothing — we repeat, nothing — is obvious when it comes to Pivot’s new flagship program. The host assures us the show will be “uncensored” and “real.”

No, it’s already got a name. “Raising McCain” — ’cause her name’s McCain, get it? You’re probably too old to get it.

Tabitha Soren? Wasn’t she, like, the Meghan McCain of the ’80s? It doesn’t matter. The lesson is clearly this: parents, don’t let your children have news, not even from Meghan McCain. Stick to the Twitters. And to Ace of Spades HQ.

        Apparently Ace played with some of switches and knobs, broke something. I TOLD him not to do that… oops, it’s up again

      Because his comment section was down, I actually had to PUT DOWN THE NEWS and play with the Morons on twitter.

      It was like the Chinese food of the Internet.

      • Alex Furlong

        It’s fun to use it to get something off your chest, but 20 minutes later you’re commenting again?

    I tell my kids all the time. “Do not text news! If it’s on the internet it’s there forever.”

    Doesn’t McCain know that “news” leads to…. paparazzi? And the really hard-core “photo-journalism”?

      I thought having news lead to blindness…or hairy palms.

      Soren was merely the B newscaster on eMpTyVee. Meghan will strictly be a D-Lister

    I guess when Keeping Up with the Kardashian’s went off the air, they left a stupidity vacancy that had to be filled. Problem solved. You’d have thought Honey Boo Boo would do it but this new show manages to be even stupider already and it hasn’t even aired yet.

    I haven’t had such a good laugh in quite a while. I’m reveling in the wit of Those Who Are Wittier Than I. Sometimes it’s good to sit back and be entertained. Esp. when I iz this tired.

    I heard in the olden days young people actually ‘delivered’ news. I didn’t believe it until I saw 2 young boys doing it. But I put a quick stop to that. Getting news is NOT a Constitutional right, and we cannot allow this. Who knows where it may lead?

    • http://twitter.com/BrianPHovland Brian H (wackobird)

      Hello group, my name is Brian and I delivered newspapers when I was twelve.
      {rest of twelve step group} Hello Brian
      I wasn’t supposed to have news at that age, the internet is coming they all said.
      You should just tweet, they all said……I should have listened……JUST LOOK AT ME NOW!!!!
      {twelve step group} We are here to help, thanks for sharing.

    And somewhere, Chevy Chase is breathing a huge sigh of relief. Someone has finally taken the crown of “Shittiest Talk Show Ever” from him.

      Jimmy Fallon says thanks….I think 😛

  • RIChris

    Reminds me of the wrath I incurred from my parents when I said, ‘That’s news to me.’ I was only 12 at the time.

  • ctmom

    I gave up twitter for Lent. The big MeggyMac news is a show on some obscure network? Not even The View? Poor thing.

  • LisaG

    I was reading this while waiting on my son’s swim practice. Lifeguards and pool patrons were looking at me strangely, probably wondering why I was giggling uncontrollably. I’m so ashamed… I’m pretty sure they all could tell I was getting high on news.

    Did Stewart and Colbert go off the air? Or is MS McCain planning on making it a threesome in the world of youth news?

    This was, hands down, the funniest collection of tweets I have ever seen, on Twitchy or otherwise. Read it last night, could not stop laughing. Read it this morning… same result.

    These so-called ‘comedians’ on Twitter could learn a thing or two from this cat. Ace is a genius… that is all.

    How exactly does Meghan McCain rate as the spokeperson for the “young”? She’s 28.

    • PeteRFNY

      28 is the new 11.

      • http://twitter.com/fenriswolfkpc Ken Colley

        Is she still on John’s health insurance? You can do it until you are 40 now, right?

  • Wiki David

    I used to deliver the news. I was only 12 years old. I wasn’t allowed to read the news though. My parents said I can have baseball.

  • Ralph_Gizzip

    So this show is going to be on Pivot? Does that make Meggie Mac the Pivot person in a circle jerk?

  • dfg

    This is why Huey Lewis and the News broke up. The kids just wouldn’t listen.

      or maybe it just wasn’t Hip To Be Square anymore 😉
