Today I was struck by how much the MSM seems to focus on stories endlessly
that don't really matter, bore the heck out of intelligent people, and induce one
to rethink their cable/satellite subscription, all while other stories are not being reported
ever that are pretty important...
Post your "favorite" overblown news stories- no time period limitation here...what else did the country miss while the newsie's kept insisting we
watch this crap?
I mean, really, how many news stories did we have to endure about the evil "Hanging Chad"?
How many of us really
wanted "all O.J.", all the time?
Did anyone really care about the "runaway bride" and why she left her fiance at the alter and pretended she was kidnapped?
I could have cared less about "Monica's blue dress", Paula Jones, or Gennifer Flowers...
And I could have done without the constant commentary about the "cigar"...
Scott Peterson. Who gives a crap how many marriage proposals he has gotten on Death Row?
Furthermore, I didn't want to know about the "pube" on the soda can, Anita Hill, or be subjected to endless news stories about it...
Balloon Boy, anyone? The news was interrupted for those crackjobs, and incessently reported afterwards?
Sarah Palin, her husband, her kids, her clothes, her "hockey mom" hype, and the idiot "baby daddy" of Bristol... C'mon, people.
Darva Conger marrying the "millionaire" after just meeting him on live TV. And...?
Just a small sampling of what I thought of...
edit to add- Tiger Woods, period.
