On very rare occasion this morning, my television is currently turned on.
The first thing I hear is:
"Stay tuned for the miraculous story of one of the victims of the Omaha Mall Massacre. When we come back, we'll bring you the story of his dying on
the operating room table and the amazing surgeon that brought him back from the dead."
Don't get me wrong, I certainly feel the situation in Omaha IS newsworthy, however, this OVER sensationalism during times like this is freaking
What happened in Omaha was a TRAGEDY! But, to the MSM it's nothing but another story that equals RATINGS RATINGS RATINGS!! At least, they seem to
feel, if they can give it as much of a sensational spin as possible.
Possibly the WORST part of the whole deal is the faux caring faces these pieces of crap anchorpeople smear on as soon as they start talking about the
I'm sorry but when they are laughing their asses off then cut to the story with a fake face full of pain then straight back to laughter, I would say
that they don't REALLY care too awful much.
While it is really NOT their job to care, is there anything wrong with a bit of REAL compassion and caring from these pieces of garbage?
Am I the only one that remembers instances of journalists back in the day REALLY breaking down on the air while reporting these stories? While I
can't recall specifics, I definitely remember achor people breaking down so badly as to have the piece prolonged almost indefinitely because they
couldn't finish the story.
Where did THOSE journalists go?
I swear, I'm beginning to think these damn anchorpeople and journalists they have these days are freaking robots programmed to show the (they think)
appropriate facial expressions and voice changes at the appropriate times.
At least this morning I'm remembering why I stopped watching the MSM in the first place.
