Stupid news coverage

I’m sick to death of cable news channels trying to pass off tabloid material as news. I don’t care about Britney Spears’ domestic squabbles. I don’t want to hear about OJ Simpson’s ridiculous new book on how he killed (oops, would have if he’d ever wanted to) Nicole and Ron. I don’t care if a hole opens up and Paris Hilton falls off the face of the earth. None of that is newsworthy in any way, yet we see it all over the news networks.

So I’m gonna quit watching.

Pick your jaws up off the floor; it’s not so unconscionable. I’m going to use that time in a more profitable way. I’ll read a book…do some target practice…call a friend…rearrange my sock drawers…you know, something actually productive and important.

But I’m sick of people acting so concerned with how unconcerned the rest of us should be. And I’m tired of being shown crap all the time when I just want to find out what’s going on in the world that’s important.

I have to admit, though…watching Mark Fuhrman eat Alan Colmes alive on his own show is just rocking my world.

This on-again, off-again, would-be commentator proves that attitudes are contagious, and that some can even kill. To this end, every written word is weighed carefully to ensure the precise delivery of the author's intent while inflicting blunt force trauma to the psyche of the reader.

    Yeah, really when news channels aren’t telling us how we need to pull out of Iraq, they’re covering K-Fed’s latest blunder. It’s ridiculous and unneeded. I’ll occasionally catch Hannity and Colmes and O’Reilly in a blue moon, but beyond that, you’re better off finding news on the net anyway. Plus there’s always talk radio.

    All apologies for being so late to reply, I fouled up and totally forgot you had a blog. Keep on keepin’ on.

    No problem man. As you may be able to tell from my posting activity, sometimes I forget, too 😛

    The latest thing: “Britney’s candid crotch shots…should we air them?” It’s funny how they’re so concerned with just how concerned they should be. That doesn’t stop them from airing them with the conveniently-placed “swish”. WHO CARES?!

    Haha, fair enough!

    It’s the nature of the beast.. people pay attention to controversy, disappointment and impending doom. All bad things. Very seldom do news channels focus on what’s going right in the world, in part because people tend to tune out to that.

    Hey society, quit being so emo.
