    The Headline For Today

    I cannot believe that the top headline for the news today was the result of the paternity test for Anna Nicole Smith's child.   Seriously? This is the most vital story that is occuring in the world today? How sad.

    I can't believe after the tragedy in Nigeria

    that no one seems to care. It really bothers me how the media can go from protect the innocent to callous rejection of the world around us.

    News??? What News?

    Turn on any supposed news channel and it is not long before you realize they only have two objectives. Either to give you their opinion and/ or someone else's opinion on the news or to advertise the Professional Sports Teams. When they have vital news they now say tune in at...

    I Do

    I didn't have the highest respect for this medium, when I was a journalist and whist I admit, I still watch it at times.  I do really hate the news and do see their agendas. The current economic recession.  Yes it is happening, but must it be every...

    Who died today and in what crazy way? I'm a journalist and I know that we move toward selecting stories that are sensational and tragic over good news anyday. But it's actually the viewers that tells us what they want to see. If we play happy stories, no one watches. It's the...

    Out of Proportion

    Especially the war in Iraq, they blew everything out of proportion.  My bf was there so I know this from what he has told me.  The media caused a lot of unnecessary stress and worry to a lot of viewers.  I did not even watch the news the entire time he was there...

    Top Priority?

    I was reading the Daily Telegraph online yesterday when I came across this article. Why on Earth the UN are concerned about this is beyond me. In any case, I like having a monarchy.     Why is the monarchy a concern for the UN human rights council? Posted by Alex...

    Partisan Pigs

    I never watch the news anymore because there's literally no station out there that even attempts to present people with honest, non-partisan truths. What good is the news if its meant to entertain instead of reporting world-events?

    Good News

    Why can't they just report on one good story, one happy situation instead of always bombarding us with horrible, violent news?  Is that too much to ask?  And what about the days when there is no "news"?  They start reporting on the stupidest things...God...

    I have a very close friend

    that did something wrong, maybe without realising it. And it got into the news, and blew 1000 times out of proportion. It wasnt a major crime. Noone was hurt. They had maintained a clean record, but what really get me to the core the newspaper portrayed it. They twisted words...
