Moderator: Tempo Gain

I had the TV on channel 52 during lunch time because I wanted to hear the news. I've done this maybe five times this month, too lazy to change the channel. My gawd, my eyes, ears bled. Lost some brain cells too. I don't know what's news and what's gossip anymore on Taiwan TV. Which channel has good, decent solid news without a lot of flashing things or reporters who speak with a good tempo and look professional? What's the obsession with youtube? And obsession with noodles going up by 3 NT! Some bakeries raising prices by 10%! Comparing toilet paper per sheet? WTF?
I'd like to watch some news between 12 and 1. Other than that, we don't watch TV. Everything else is streamed. The cartoons in the morning would be good if they didn't dub the stupid rough-sounding Mandarin over the English.
TV here makes me sad. And mad. They're just so bad.

When they came back I asked them how it went, and they said she spoke in English/Taiwanese mix...mostly English. Ridiculous. They thought it was so cool how she could speak Taiwanese (exact words: 她的台語超厲害喔！), but didn't seem to care at all that she has zero ability in Mandarin. I don't know if that says more about her or them.
