Hate to start with a rant, but I have to wonder about something? I needed to catch some news, and what’s first thing I see and hear, Casey Anthony, Casey Anthony, Casey Anthony!!! I cant stand the woman, but in order to watch news, I have to look at her and listen to what is going on with her. Then, on another one, we have Arnold! BREAKING NEWS, it states, Arnold’s mistresss, blah blah blah! Can someone please explain why our newsmedia has became such, well, a—holes?

I mean, please, am I missing something here? Maybe its just me, but I have always thought that News pertains to me and what I need to be aware of. Such as my local weather. Is it going to come a tornado? How is the economy doing? Is it good to invest now? How is the job markets? But what does Casey, Arnold, Brittney, Tiger, etc, all have to do with that? If I want gossip then I’ll go to my local supermarket and trust me, those people really know their gossip, lol, but I’ve never been about gossip. I couldnt even tell you what my neighbors are up to, as long as they aren’t hurting me, let alone what some people who live in Hollywood are up to? Oh well, just wanted to vent a little on how I feel about our so-called newsmedia, and its all the same, the news never tells Real Issues anymore, just a bunch of gossip! What do you gals think?

    • Thanks girls, you do have a point there Eva about the forensics, but then again, I have to wonder why Casey? Why is she so important? And well, I cant say I see any difference at all between the 2 networks, Fox or CNN. They all talk mindlessly about the Hollywood stuff, which is why I pretty much gave up on all of them. There are certain sources here online I will go for news on, mainly because in order to read something on the internet, I dont have to hear about all those people. The weather and the economy are tops with me on listening to news, I just dont hear too much on the networks regarding these issues. In fact, tv in general to me, is so lacking anymore, which is why I guese I hardly ever watch it. Thank you Eva and Marya heart

    • I do agree with you.  I am tired of hearing about Hollywood stuff and which celebrity/politician is involved in sexual shaningans!!  Give us real news people!

      Honestly I don’t even watch the news anymore.  It’s all too depressing.

    • My point Exactly Diane! I never watch the so-called news either! Its all garbage! Even my local news gets into that gossipy stuff. News pertains to us, and what will happen with us, not someone we’ll probably never even meet! Thanksheartheart
