I Just Can't Stand It

I get stuck in airports all too often. In Atlanta’s Hartsfield Jackson you have to suffer with the constant, pervasive playing of CNN. What is driving me insane these days?

No longer do news organizations report the news. Now, we have to suffer through opinion making. “Tell me, reporter so and so, you are an excellent reporter, what do you think about whether or not he is using steroids and what will America think?”

Who gives a damn what a reporter thinks, speculates? Tell me the known facts and then shut up. Instead of wasting my time talking about who is a good reporter and what s/he thinks, move on to some real news, some actual journalism.

This is exactly why I don’t watch the news. It isn’t!
