Another Reason NOT To Watch The News

I haven't really watched a news broadcast for the last two years or so. I quit at some point during the last presidential campaign--just couldn't take all of the hype and pushing of non-issues. Tonight I had the news on, basically because I wanted to listen to a story about the swine flu vaccine. After the story, I left the channel on as background noise. And then the story came. A big enough story to make the national news broadcast--a place where we as citizens are supposed to find out what is going on in the world. And the story? Bo, the dog, has shit in Airforce One. More than once.

Excuse me? This is a story that needs to make the news? No wonder I don't get my news from the TV. And some people wonder why viewership is going down.

Why honey didn't you know? Eeeevrythhiing about the Obamas is glorious. That dog shit in the plane is symbolic of what he is doing to this country. Where are your pompoms you should be cheering our demise.

If I keep having bizarre dreams I'm going to quit the news as well.

My first reaction? Poor dog, he had to go potty, and when you gotta go, you gotta go.

My second reaction? This is news?? But then again, maybe the news wanted a chuckle amid all the awful news.

I avoid watching the news too, I read the newspaper or look up news on the Internet.
