A few days ago I decided to cut down on my news consumption. The reason for this is, that I feel that the news, either print, TV or even the internet, is all about bad news. Another thing that I have noticed about bad, depressing and sensationalized news stories is, that it affect my mood and how I feel about humanity, life and the whole world in general. Just like anti-social websites, right now I feel that reporters and news companies, just care about ratings and making money, not about bringing the truth to the people who use or consume it.
I remember when I was a young teenager, the reporters back then, actually did research and brought stories that really matter to their readers. Today, they don’t do the research like they are supposed to, they get wrong information from sources that are not reliable and they just don’t care if the story matters to their readers. Plain and simply put, it’s just about rating and money. It is really sad, because back in the days, reporters were people who everyone looked up to and respected. Today the media is about having a story that will go viral. It really bothers me, that when I read or see a story on TV, I must ask myself… is this the truth and nothing but the truth? Or is it some made up bullshit story, by some stupid reporter or network, that is crying out for attention like a baby? The one thing for sure is, that the only news that I have been keeping up with are positive or good news and technology news. Nothing more, nothing less. The rest, is just bullshit.
With that said! I am Audi 5000 y’all!
