So, every now and then, we here at The Rant — Sanford’s official go-to news source for all the good things related to the things you care about and possibly some things you’re only mildly interested in but may read anyway [we’re workshopping this tagline] — get a random message from somebody outside of our readership zone, and often, these messages are, for lack of a better term, rants.
We’re sharing a few of them in this post. Like the one above, which told us that our “news anchors and reporters” need to find a new word for “died.” They were not pleased with our suggestion that we use “took a dirt nap” in the future.
Below is another example (and an example of our having fun with these).
We’re not sure it’s the case with all of these, but in this instance, she has confused The Rant — Sanford’s official go-to news source for all the good things related to the things you care about and possibly some things you’re only mildly interested in but may read anyway [again, not official] — with “channel 4 the rant.”
So we googled “channel 4 the rant.” This guy came up.
Apparently, Kevin Ogle is part of the Ogle family who dominate Oklahoma City news media. Dad Jack and sons Kevin, Kelly and Kent are a family of Ron Burgundys, and we’re better off for having learned this. There’s even a satire news site, The Lost Ogle, that regularly pokes fun of these handsome news anchor robots.
There are, not surprisingly, a million other “Rants” out there. Many of them are related to local TV news stations or blog sites. It’s understood that on occasion, someone will confuse our completely serious news site with another completely serious news site. And send us stuff like this.
And we’ll continue to have fun with it.
