Pardon me, but I need to rant a little. About the news.
Why does everything have to be so nauseatingly sensationalized? Dirty, horrific, outrageous, terrifying, shocking?
When I signed on to my email server today, which shall not be named here, the following headliners appeared, and these are just a few, mind you:
Executive Suspected of Murdering His Wife
Star Reveals Hollywood Horror Story
Amish Girl Accused of Bizarre Act
Intersection Called Corridor of Sin
Harmless Prank Went Horribly Wrong
What Mom Buys for Son is Killing Him
Man Claims Creature Stalked Him
Monster Said to Live in This Lake
And here are a few more, from random popular news sources:
Doctors Intentionally Concealed Decapitation of Baby During Delivery
Bumble Bee Tuna Plant Worker Cooked in Steamer Identified
Man Stabs Grandmother 111 Times, Slits Her Belly, Removes her Organs
I didn’t have to search for these type stories. They’re everywhere. The news is saturated with them.
What is going on? Are we not a people of intellectual integrity? Do the news powers that be have to report on every vile, despicable act? Is this what we want to read as news? Oh, please.
Where’s the uplifting news? The stories that make us appreciate, smile, relish the infinite positive possibilities? Where’s the good stuff?
Give me the good stuff.
Every day may not be good, but there’s something good in every day. ~Author Unknown
