“the news” ain’t news to me…

i never watch the news anymore… it makes me a little sick when i think about the business aspect of “the news”… i feel like “the news” is almost 100% used to make our eyeballs/brains dollar signs… there is very little “news” that comes from “the news”… when i catch a minute or two of it once every six months, it seems like they are telling the same stories they were telling 15 years ago… we still watch it obviously… why?

the last time i watched some “news”, it was about the stuff going on in Libya… i was inadvertently forced to watch it… i didn’t really mind getting an update on what “the news” was currently… i was sitting with a couple of Republicans who were zoned in… i was appalled by the coverage… it was an investigative reporter updating the world on how well the rebels were uniting and becoming more tactical… it was disgusting to see how elated he was about how they were learning to fight back and kill… i had to keep my smart-ass mouth shut so i would not offend the host and hostess… they said nothing about what they had just watched, which was an educated man praising the progressive war tactics of a small group of people… weird…

i guess i am saddened that this is normal in our society… we are desensitized by everything we see on the television that we cannot see beyond what we are told… we take everything as the truth and real when it is on television… as most of us all know, it is not! take it all with a grain of salt… “the news” is just a story that has been manipulated in such a way that you “have to watch it”… well, you don’t… and you shouldn’t…

i believe that our own lives’ are filled with news everyday… and it is not news… it is reality… every time you are sitting at a television, think about what you could be creating for your news… we get so wrapped up in other realities that we forget about our own…

just goes to show that we should all smash and throw away our televisions…

I HATE “THE NEWS”…

peace and noLove…
