Ok, so maybe that's not the best way to make a point, but it's pretty fucking true right? The news has NOTHING positive to offer.. so why the hell should I watch it. I get enough negativity on my facebook news feed, I don't need it on the real news too. TV shows are one thing, they are not real and provide entertainment - the news is real life yo!
Take for example a couple of stories as of late:
- Three juvie boys caught for an estimated $100-$200 THOUSAND dollar of damage for busting out car windows in St. Paul... why do these kids not have guidance? No way with that many windows busted out can they claim this was some prank... and I hope they make these kids pay for it, not their parents - once they get jobs, take all their fucking money.
- Divorce and death litters the Hollywood news - and if it's not that it's people comparing Kim and Kris' wedding to that of true royalty. THAT is fucked up.
- A man who decapitated his son because he was special needs and didn't want to take care of him anymore - on top of it all - he places the boys head outside in the drive way so the wife would see it when she came home. This seriously makes me want to vomit.
- Even the 'mother nature' news is sad: earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis, etc.
I know this is just the world and it is what is it, but I'd rather be completely out of the loop when it comes to news than sit and watch this shit day after day.
I've just become fed up with the news. I'd rather watch Jersey Shore and see Snooki and J-Woww get drunk and pee behind the bar. While it may not be 'educational', it certainly makes me laugh AND it's not negative.
STOP all the damn negativity!!!!
