I've spent many of my young adult years practically glued to the TV watching the news. There were house fires, pedestrians getting turned into street pizza, heatwaves, storms, mass shootings, etc. It turned me into a paranoid recluse. Watching a steady diet of this sh*t would have anyone believe that most human beings are thoughtless, violent, drunk driving, sex-crazed, gun-wielding, sh*t-for brains psychotic lunatics. And that the world is coming apart at the seams like L.A. in the beginning of Demolition Man. But the years I went to college (circa 2000, before it became SJW University / St. Safe Space College) I began to see what the world really was rather than the Hellscape the media protrayed at 6/11 o'clock every night. College wasn't a wild orgy of drunk f**kwads burning down the campus. These people were mostly normal with standards.  

What really turned me against the news media was the infamous 9/11 coverage. Inflated bullsh*t speculation by the ton. The pictures and the videos from average citizens were news enough for me. This and Katrina all they did was shove cameras into people's faces. Enough! This is when I hated Fox News thinking they were the root of all evil. So, I started to watch the BBC and EuroNews and i24. That is, before the era of Trump v. Clinton v. Biden v. Bernie Socialist Politboro.  

Today, I think the media is too politically polarizing. One side thinks that Trump is turning the nation into a nazi-like police state and rallying every Neo-Nazi rabid lunatic out there. Whereas the other think that Western Civilization is dying and that the SJW demons are taking over the universe. Now with this f**king Coronavirus frenzy, they've really sealed the deal.  Not only are they covering this goddamn disease like its some kind of doomsday Ebola contaigion! When only the elderly, those with compromised immune systems are at greater risk than the rest of us. Jesus Christ! These f**kwits have read too many/watched too many Stephen King books and movies! Where the hell is Walter Cronkite, Edward R. Morrow, and Tom Brokaw when we need them?

 Now we have a cast of failed modeling students, wannabe slacktivists on the wrong side of Woke, and conspiracy nutjobs giving us information...the wrong f**king information! The wrong information that ignores what Trump actually does and focuses on what the bastard put on his Twitter feed. The wrong information that cause a nationwide shortage on cleaning products including hand sanitizer and isopropyl alcohol! The wrong information that causes a 22-year old deli clerk to utter out the phrase: "scary times we're living in". Really? You lardassed dumbsh*t with fingers covered in cheese puff dust! "Go back to 1968 when politcal assassinations were commonplace, there was real oppression, racism, and sexism. Go back to 1918 when the Spanish Flu was amok before we had anything like Purell, a CDC, or proper hygenine when something like this killed tens of millions of people!" Only people like this would belive the news media  hype. Go online get the story from something Rueters, Epoch Times, and WHO site. Not some douchce bag or dumb bitch with fake tits that's more at home on a reality show than a f**king news broadcast!! I have spoken.

I'm waiting to see if any of them say to drink bleach, and if they'll do it themselves... 

I only watch the news for the local weather, not much else...

I crack up at how every news station, local or national, has to prominatly show a huge graphic of a virus molecule (or is it just a virus?) in scary glowing red coloring Ermm along with tense dramatic bedtrack music during their 24/7 coverage 
Plus they're all pretending to be experts on it and parade around the same people and quotes from "experts" repeating the same helpful tips...Stay away from crowds, wash your hands, blah blah blah blah

But then they have to stop with the fearmongering for a minute and go to the dopey weather person who has to put on a smile and do the 5 day forecast before throwing it back to the tense dramatic music and (again) the graphics of the red scary virus's under a microscope and you can hear them basically repeat everything they already told you again and again until the top of the hour LOL

Hey Pitload, It seems pretty damn obvious that the news outlets have an agenda. And it ain't just telling you the unbiased news!! There are no real independent news outlets anymore. They are all owned by a handful of very wealthy people. Even Fox news.

It's so much easier now than ever before for all the news stations to tell you what they want you to hear and brainwash you with their agenda. It's even been highly speculated that our own government (especially the CIA) is complicit in providing news outlets with "propaganda" which is then disseminated to the public.

BTW, if you are naive enough to think our own government wouldn't use propaganda against us, simply look up the Smith-Mundt act. That will tell you all you need to know.

I loathe them because they can't get enough of this trying to scare people with increasingly questionable stats and numbers and will cling to it leaving fingernail scratches on the hardwood floor while being dragged away until there's only one person left on the planet infected.
