I really don't like the news much these days.
Not that I don't think knowing what is going on isn't important.
But most news outlet pick and choose what they think is newsworthy.
They disregard what they don't think is important.
Aaron Hernandez killed someone and got convicted.
It made the news because he used to play football for a "great" football team.
And more mention of him then who got killed.
Vaccines- for or against that is up to you.
However, they go on and on about how everyone needs them and they prevent whatever.
No mention that not too long ago several NHL players came down with the mumps after receiving the MMR booster.
A few weeks ago my daughter was telling me about a story a kid wrote for Journalism.
It had to do with one of the Down's Syndrome kids. He started doing a thing on Tuesday mornings before school selling tea and coffee. He was interviewed and asked what he planned to do with the money he made. And he answered that he was going to get internet at home. That part got edited out because they didn't think that sounded good.
Shouldn't young people be made to understand that there are poor people or that not everything is a given for everyone?
I thought that was an important thing they just left out.
That was newsworthy.
