O.J. Simpson is back in the news again. What are your thoughts on the release of "If I Did It" and his recent arrest?
My mom got to hear this rant earlier today, but I thought it needed a wider audience.
I don't care about OJ Simpson. I also don't care about most of the other "news" these days. I turn on the news every morning. Sometimes I'll put on the local channels, sometimes CNN. And I hardly ever hear about news that I actually care about or news that has any importance in the world. It makes me so upset when a stupid celebrity story bumps an actual news story about the country, world, politics, the economy, etc. It makes me have little faith in my fellow Americans who obviously care more about these stories based on the popular hits on the news websites. All I want is the actual news. I don't think that's too much to ask for. But I can't find a source (other than a newspaper, which I hate to admit, I just don't have time to read – I like to watch the news while getting ready in the morning) that will give it to me without all of this other "news." The Daily Show is probably the best source of real news that I know of, and that is a fake news show! Remember when MTV started playing too many shows and not enough music videos so they created MTV2 (which also consists of mostly shows now, but…)? I think we need to do that with the news channels, too. Like MSNBC2 or CNN2. Or maybe I can find someone who will just read the newspaper to me in the morning while I get ready…
