Conservatives have Fox, liberals have MSNBC, so why shouldn't Juggalos have their own news network? Who else is going to give that oh-so-nuanced clowncentric view of important news and report on issues the mainstream media just won't touch? Who else is going to give the weather report as a profanity-laced tirade in clown makeup? What other political correspondent is going to suggest Obama threaten his foes with a hatchet to the dick? None, that's who.
God help us, if this Insane Clown Posse catering new channel was real, we think we'd probably watch it, sort of like we can't resist staring at Tool Academy every time we happen past it while channel surfing. And given the course TV news has taken over the last decade, we're willing to bet it will be real before the start of the next decade -- probably with Shaggy 2 Dope holding down the anchor's chair.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
