When I first created this blog I didn’t want there to be any mention of politics. I wanted this blog to show case my talent as writer. I want to write about love and give advice. I wanted to create poems that expressed my innermost feelings. Well I still want all of that, but I finally had to give in to the political urges.
Before I begin my rant I must first explain two things. One. I do not have a television or cable where I am living. So I do not watch the news. I normally find out that something has happened from facebook or the general public when I finally leave my house. And even if I did have cable I still wouldn’t watch the news. But I’ll get into that later.
Two. My political beliefs are just that. Their Mine if you agree awesome. If you don’t awesome. They are just my opinion. This means they are neither right nor wrong just how I feel. Whether you like my opinion or not will not change it nor make it go away so save your breathe and my time. I’m not saying that you can’t comment. I’m just saying that I’m not going to argue opinions with anyone. If i wanted to waste time i’d watch the news.
Now to the point. This morning I was randomly surfing the net and notice that there was something going on between the Gov or AZ and President Obama. Upon further research, I found that Gov. Brewer and President Obama had a rater intense conversation that has been spun so many times from so many angles I have no idea what actually happened. This annoyance has lead to this post. So technically this isn’t a rant about Politics so much as the medias inability to get it together.
I am officially sick and tired of the media. I’m so done with the nonsense. I am irritated beyond my ability to truly convey to you how i’m feeling. Why is it that I can’t seem to find a nonpartisan source of information anywhere. I am forced to watch several youtube clips of events just to figure out what actually happened because every news outlet is so busy telling me what they think and not what happened. It bothers me that they are getting paid to tell me what to think. I thought the purpose of the media was to report the news. Did I miss the memo that said hey while your at it. Lets spin it make it everybody elses fault and through in some emotional nonsense so fun. It’s to the point where I don’t even have to turn the volume up on a station. I see the logo and instant identify political and either get angry or proud. Which is so ridiculous! All I want is to be able to watch the news without being told what to think or how someone else feels about the subject. Because honestly I don’t care.
I am tired of people making money tell me how they feel. How crazy is that?! The unemployment rate is way to high. And I know this because I’m a college grad with only a part time commission based job. I can’t find any other work. Yet I turn on the tv and the reporters have decided that they need to educate me on the state of the world. All I wanted was to know what was going on, and they couldn’t even give me that. At least not without also putting in their two cents. This may come as a complete shock, but I am perfectly capable of reaching my own conclusions. How about they do their job and tell me the facts. Nothing but the facts and let me decide how to feel. After all if the public was a little more educated and free thinking we probably wouldn’t be in the mess that we’re in now anyway.
