The wicked news media

22 Aug

Forget the wicked witch of the East, the problem we have is with the wicked news  media. I mean, why is it that whenever some news event happens, they take the story, sensationalize it, and run with it. They try to milk all the controversy that then can out of it until the next major news even happens. Case in point. The chick-fil-a controversy. All the major networks ran with it until something new and exciting happens. The funny thing is, I can’t even remember what story knocked it out of first place! The most recent thing that they have their claws into is the stupid comment that Senator Todd Akin made. Even he realized later that his comments were offensive, and apologized a little too late. As soon as the next major story breaks, everyone will be saying, Senator who?? But, what can you do. I remember years ago, a neighbor wanted to fumigate his apartment across from ours. He left out a can of bug spray that starting spraying, then he left. The problem was he forgot to turn off his pilot light! Then, boom!! The whole apartment complex shook from the force of the explosion. The local news media showed up along with the fire and police departments. I watched as the lovely young lady looked around, then turned to her cameraman and said, ” There’s no story her. Nobody died!” I thought that was so insensitive, but that’s the way the media thinks. Get the biggest and juiciest story out there! How sad really. So, we have to put up with this nonsense for now. I don’t see the news media changing their way. What would happen if everyone woke up one day only to find out that nothing happened overnight? I mean, there was peace in the middle east, nobody killed anybody. It was a quiet night. Oh, what would the all mighty news media do then? Makes you wonder.
