    So today in the news she mentioned that knox may go to trial in italy.....
    3hours after it was announced that she will be re-tried.

    In the internet age of real-time news she just can't adapt. Still pulls her headlines from the newspapers every morning, basically reading yesterdays news. A simple check of cnn or bbc news would have given more current and relevant headlines.

    In my opinion Robin's news was never about informing the public. It was about giving Howard, JAckie, Billy and Fred topics to riff on. Back in the 90s and even through a good portion of the Artie era, the news was the best part of the show.

    Post evolution however, Howard is too afraid of offending to the wrong people and is too busy redefining his persona as a compassionate, pet loving, vegan, gay activist, mbc reality show judge. Therefore no more jokes during the news, simply a few throw away comments, live reads, and rants about gays and abortions.
