I consider myself to be somewhat educated and I like to research the current events taking place around the world to stay abreast of things and I
check CNN and FOX and some other news sources and I have to ask a question. Completely putting all political views aside... what immature bunch of
people have they got working at FOX news?!?!? I mean come on. I'm looking for stuff about.. oh, I don't know... Iran - Nuclear Weapons.. North
Korea and instead - under the "Current News" I see topics like these:
1) Boyfriend of Kansas woman stuck to toilet wins lottery
2) Voodoo Witch: Angry Politician Wrote Me Bad Checks
3) Skinny Dipping at the Imperial Palace
and my FAVORITE ONE.....
Palin Not Welcome
Kicking off 'Sticky and Sweet' tour, Madonna says 'Palin can't come to my show'
WHO THE F*** CARES?!?!?! - The only way that statement has any weight is because MSM picked it up and posted all over their headlines. If no news
sources even ran that story - it would just be some pissy little rock star making a statement her fans don't even want to hear about - they just want
music, not her political views.
Come on!!!! This is the same crap they were doing back when that porn star died --- Anna Smith. I swear for like two months straight all I heard on
XM Fox was this stupid investigation/trial about a PORN star. Does FOX report on anything anyone cares about?
Sure - I see the other articles on there - about murders and what not, and for their credit - I do tend to get some good news stories, but come on -
for the past four months or so it has just been the same type of crap over and over again.
Where does the line get drawn between what 'news' should be what 'news' is? Should the entire online community/world know is Grandma Tikitiki's
cat got ran over by a steamroller in a small rural town in North Dakota - and going one step further - how did that get on the news?
I don't know - sorry for tying up your time with my rant about the news, but I've lost faith in MSM, especially after going to Iraq twice and seeing
the CRAP these people put on their sites/channels.
Feel free to comment or add your own input - I'm up for discussion.
