I do not have an issue with Michelle Obama. I do, however, have an issue with the medias coverage of Michelle Obama. Everytime they talk about her,
they only mention what she was wearing.
"Michelle looked stunning in her evening gown"
"Michelle's sense of style is the envy of the world"
mark my words, I do not care what the first lady is wearing, and I would not be surprised to hear that hardly anyone actually DOES care.
She made a speech at a school in london the other day, encouraging the girls to be all that they can be and to consider getting into education. Did
the news focus on the message of her speech? Of course not! They discussed what she wore for the speech.
How shallow have we become that we care more about fashion and celebrity gossip, than about actual news?
I hate those celebrity gossip shows, and I hate that the cable news networks are slowly becoming a 24 hour celeb gossip show.
It is getting to the point where, I turn on the news, hear a story about who was wearing what and who is dating who, and I role my eyes, sigh and
change the channel.
We really need to get our priorities straight.
