The Sensationalized News

For the past few years, I have tried to stay away as much as I can from reading, watching or just being in contact with the sensationalized news… yes! yes! yes! yes! yes! you read that right, the sensationalized news. You see, I understand that news outlets “have” to make money, but the thing that bothers me the most is how they show the news stories to us. I just can’t understand why is it, that they have to make things look or sound bigger than what they actually are. It just irritates my ass, when I read such tittle as “man saves entire family from burning rooftop inferno“, when in reality, it was just a small fucking fire, that even a baby could have just walked away from. I now they just want to grab our attention, but the one thing that I hate the most is, overrated bullshit stories.

Another thing that I hate about the media is, long as stories that over explain and keep repeating things or talk about irrelevant shit that is not related to the story. Maybe, just maybe, my loyal 1.5 readers might have noticed, that my posts are around 250 and 300 words long. The reason for that is, that if I can’t say it in that amount of words, I’d rather not say it. Some reporters just love to write long ass stories, thinking that we the readers just don’t have shit to do with our time. They really have to understand, that people like myself, just want to read a story and get on with our lives. To be honest with you, all that I care about is who, what, where, and when, that is it. The rest, is just a whole bunch of shit.

The Bad News Is… The Bad News

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.
