OK - I have had enough, the media is insane

They are no longer reporting the tragic event, they are in a feeding frenzy.

It like they are high on this stuff.

1. Remember 911?

National media is not thinking how this might be affecting the rest of the county.

3. (most of them) exist for 1 reason and that is to sell air time. Actually telling news in a non

manipulative way is beyond them.

4. I'm finding CBS the least hyperbolic

5. "If it bleeds, it leads" Urban dictionary:

"basically means that the media loves violence. television, radio, and film will for the most part have much higher ratings if it's about a bunch of people getting murdered rather than something nice, like somebody saving a cat from a tree. ultimately, it's a statement about america's fascination with violence.

Johnny: you watch the news today? it was awesome, 500 people got their heads chopped off!

7. Stream Al Jazeera. They are giving the most unbiased

reporting probably because they are looking at it as outsiders.

8. Every "profession" is kind of psycho, when you get right down to it.


It's the price of specialization. I don't blame them for what they do. In a way, we are all forced into a routine one way or another.

9. They are reflecting us, and you're right, we are insane.

 

Completely and irredeemably.

Sick and perverted, isolated in our own individual fantasy worlds. Worst of all, that's how we want it.
