The last four days of media feeding frenzy

Quartzsite, AZ - Here's a reality check:

  • We have a dictator in North Korea that wants to nuke us. Or in lieu of that he wants to sell the weapon to someone else that will.
  • You have a team of whack jobs in Iran that want to bring about Armageddon by trying to wipe Israel off the map.
  • The US House of Representatives just passed one of the largest tax hikes in history in the name of the Church of Global Warming.
  • Our current President makes President Roosevelt look conservative and President Carter look like a genius and is doing his best to destroy our way of life by shoving European style socialism down our throats.

And all we got on the news Thursday night, Friday, Saturday and Sunday was all Michael Jackson all the time. And if we weren't watching the networks wouldn't be covering it.

Does anyone else find this disturbing?

It is precisely the purpose of the public opinion generated by the press to make the public incapable of judging, to insinuate into it the attitude of someone irresponsible, uninformed.
