I wanted to ask is anyone fed up with the celebrity-laden news that's been going on since at least 2000?
It's like they want us to worry about Justin Beiber and not important issues such as the NSA scandals and the Obama scandals. If it's not a reality star in trouble or a celebrity being arrest I guess it's not news anymore. It's not just celebrities it's also sports news.
Case in point; the other day MSNBC; a news network I detest interrupted an interview with a congresswoman to break to Miami to cover freaking Justin Beiber's arrest! I found that vile and disgusting! Talk about your priorities! Celebrities are NOT NEWS! Another case is that my football team; the Cleveland Browns hired their new coach and immediately all the local affiliates were on it like white on rice.
I've often believed there is a time and a place for sports news and celebrity news but when networks interrupt for something like that it bothers me.
I have been watching CNN the past few hours to keep me company as I am rather bored and twice they have had lengthy segments on Justin Beiber. HE IS NOT NEWS! Sorry, but I am more concerned about the potential for terrorism in Sochi, the NSA debacle, Obama scandals- real news.
I admit I've always been a newshound. I've always liked watching the news, learning about things and learning about various parts of the world. I have always watched the news and when I was younger; I would read the newspaper at school and or wait til my dad got home from work to read it. I have always liked learning.
Today; I'm to the point where I don't know what to make of the news. I admit I watch CNN over all the other networks because I dislike MSNBC and Fox News with a passion plus I've always watched CNN. I admit I do watch RT sometimes but dislike how one-sided they are plus I believe RT is nothing more than Russian propaganda.
Anyone else like me fed up with the celebrity news cycle we live in now? I only ask because I have been wanting to ask this question for a while but I've been kinda nervous about how people might react to the topic. I admit I am really, REALLY nervous... lol.
