I Am Tired Of The Mis-direction By The Mass Media

Don't believe everything you see on T.V. or newspaper, All Main stream media is slanted to fit an agenda 1,893 People

    This refers to the distraction from the real

    issues. They try to make a big deal out of nothing to hide the real issues. The scary part is not too many people realise it and no one will do anything about it.

    I am tired of feeling

    as though I need to be 90 pounds to be beautiful. However, I am also tired of the media putting down skinny people too, as if it is so wrong to be anorexic or so unhealthy to be chubby. Please media and all you regular people, stop judging others by their weight.
