In place of my weekend reflection, I'll discuss CNN. I guess it's part of my compulsive behavior, because I cannot shake my reliance on this "news organization" for my daily updates on the happenings of the world. I might as well look at a damn snow-globe with a little poorly-painted earth in the middle.
Do you notice their headlines? Their poorly selected corresponding images? I'm not sure what business these people are in anymore. I'm half reading Perez-Hilton, and half, the 3rd grade reading-level articles of my local paper.
And to underscore my concerns, I've been collecting images over the past few months, probably just to add to my anxiety levels, as I'm a self-destructing kinda gal.
Let's start at the beginning:
Now, no one liked this chick. No one. Even the Republicans I know were wise enough to roll the eye a bit or change the topic of conversation whenever her name was mentioned. Except for that one girl, but she's just an idiot.
But, do you see this picture? Holy Hitler allusions, CNN! Sure she thinks global warming is "God huggin' us a little closer" or something, but she's not even remotely close to that guy. I mean, genocide aside, the guy was actually, like, intelligent, right?
Not convinced that this "news organization" is a sham? I've got more. Take this little snippet from their recent headlines:
The way I break it down is like this:
7 actual news reports.
7 celebrity updates (including McCain's commentary on his daughter's love life).
4 miscellaneous lines of crap.
Or, for you visual learners:
Seriously, did they consider the inappropriateness of coupling the execution of soldiers with McCain's idiot offspring?
Sadly, I've misplaced the capture, but later that day, their 3 video profiles consisted of a clip of the murdered pastor story sandwiched by two (not one!) recaps of "The Cad" Bachelor.
It is from this highly scientific point of reference (i.e., the above enumerated research) that I conclude that this very blog is a better source of news information for the general public. At least it will entertain with less wincing, but probably not fewer nightmares.
