Just a quick blog to rant about the morning news; Every morning I watch the 6am news so I can A) Learn about whats happening in the world, B) Become more informed, and C) Keep track of the time as I get ready for work.
I do NOT watch the news to learn that chocolate is good for me, that more and more people are becoming obese or hear that procrastination is becoming more of a problem for people.
I would really like to know why news stations think its more important to report on the ridiculous topics than to actually discuss what happened in Parliament the day before, the wars overseas, humanitarian issues…. the list goes on. When did becoming a news reporter mean all you had to do was look good and be able to read a teleprompter?? Its embarrassing to realize that we actually watch this garbage and then think we’re informed about whats happening in the world!
Thats my rant… I’m done now, although I remain thoroughly disgusted with the media.
BTW – almost 50 hits a day on this blog… take the time to leave a comment!
