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.
