We Are All Fucked!

For the past few days, I have noticed that I’m not suffering from what they call “morning depression” compared to last week and the previews weeks before. The thing about it is, that there are two things that I have changed, and they are 1) I am back on Prozac and 2) I have stopped watching the news in the morning. So right now, my money is on the news. For years, I’ve said that the news industry, has to sensationalize every story, because they have to appeal to readers and get higher ratings and ad revenues. I know for a fact, that after watching a lot of news, I feel as if humanity is coming to an end. I feel like if the shit has hit the fan and there’s nothing that I can do about it.

If you were to look at the stories in the news right now, they will most likely be about car accident deaths, celebrity deaths, child abuse and murders, child abductions and murders, corruption, corrupt politicians, drug related deaths, economic collapse, all sorts of epidemics, fire related deaths, gang related killings, health scares, murders, opioid epidemic, pedophiles, perverts, police shootings, rapes, robberies, school shootings and wars. Based on the news media, right now… WE ARE ALL FUCKED! and there is nothing that we can do about it.

The Culture Of Fear

“Health scare”, “Deliver us from evil”, “City of death”, “Gun crazy country”, “22 more die in Syria, UN calls for ceasefire”, “Bullets hit two at Queens jiggle joint”, “Tourist at Met had measles” and “Bloody bid for freedom” were some of the stories in just one Sunday newspaper. Hey look, politicians, pundits, and journalists use fear mongering to draw attention to issues, often justified as informing the public, when in reality is just a whole bunch of bullshit. You have to understand that there’s a fine line between creating an informed citizenry and creating a fearful citizenry and that is exactly what they use to get our attention… fear. The reality of it all is, that we are not seeing the end of the world as we know it, it is our perception of danger that has increased, not the actual level of risk.

The reason why I have cut down on the amount of news that I consume is, that everything that they report is negative and throughout the years, I have realized that it has been affecting my mood… specially in the morning. My shrink told me once, that I could read or watch the news, but not to overdose on it, which is what I have tried to do for a while. But to be honest with you, sometimes I forget, specially when I finish my work early and I don’t have nothing to do at work. Right now, I just bought a book tittle “The culture of fear: Why Americans are afraid of the wrong things”. You see, when I don’t drink alcohol, I love to read, plus reading keeps my mind busy and away from the news. I just hope that the book is interesting enough, to keep me busy for a couple of weeks.

Are Some People Born Assholes, Or Do They Have To Work On It?

I know that I have criticized newspapers for publishing sensationalized stories, and I have said that I would cut down on my news consumption many times before. But the truth of the matters is, that I still do read online newspapers, but like my shrink told me once, I try not to overdose on them. Let’s be honest, too much news is not good for me and I know it. But getting back to this crazy and insane post of mine, I was reading an “exclusive story” on the New York daily news website titled “Queens school rejects student’s bid to add his name Malcolm X on senior sweater, then mocks him”, you can read it here.

To make a long story short, High School student Malcolm Xavier Combs was told by a school official, that Malcolm X, was someone who he didn’t want to be associated with. My question is… What the FUCK is wrong with some people these days!? I mean, why is it that some people can’t just shut the fuck up about things that doesn’t concern them? I just don’t get why some celebrities, government officials, politicians, school officials and so forth, who are out of touch with reality, have to open their big fucking mouth, in order to put others down? I mean! REALLY!?. I know that I blog about a lot of shits that I like, dislike and hate, but my ground rule is, that I can put myself down as many times as I want to, but I don’t do that shit to others, just so I can feel better about myself. Some people just need to learn when to shut the fuck up!

The Sensationalized News

For the past few years, I have tried to stay away as much as I can from reading, watching or just being in contact with the sensationalized news… yes! yes! yes! yes! yes! you read that right, the sensationalized news. You see, I understand that news outlets “have” to make money, but the thing that bothers me the most is how they show the news stories to us. I just can’t understand why is it, that they have to make things look or sound bigger than what they actually are. It just irritates my ass, when I read such tittle as “man saves entire family from burning rooftop inferno“, when in reality, it was just a small fucking fire, that even a baby could have just walked away from. I now they just want to grab our attention, but the one thing that I hate the most is, overrated bullshit stories.

Another thing that I hate about the media is, long as stories that over explain and keep repeating things or talk about irrelevant shit that is not related to the story. Maybe, just maybe, my loyal 1.5 readers might have noticed, that my posts are around 250 and 300 words long. The reason for that is, that if I can’t say it in that amount of words, I’d rather not say it. Some reporters just love to write long ass stories, thinking that we the readers just don’t have shit to do with our time. They really have to understand, that people like myself, just want to read a story and get on with our lives. To be honest with you, all that I care about is who, what, where, and when, that is it. The rest, is just a whole bunch of shit.

The Bad News Is… The Bad News

A few days ago I decided to cut down on my news consumption. The reason for this is, that I feel that the news, either print, TV or even the internet, is all about bad news. Another thing that I have noticed about bad, depressing and sensationalized news stories is, that it affect my mood and how I feel about humanity, life and the whole world in general. Just like anti-social websites, right now I feel that reporters and news companies, just care about ratings and making money, not about bringing the truth to the people who use or consume it.

I remember when I was a young teenager, the reporters back then, actually did research and brought stories that really matter to their readers. Today, they don’t do the research like they are supposed to, they get wrong information from sources that are not reliable and they just don’t care if the story matters to their readers. Plain and simply put, it’s just about rating and money. It is really sad, because back in the days, reporters were people who everyone looked up to and respected. Today the media is about having a story that will go viral. It really bothers me, that when I read or see a story on TV, I must ask myself… is this the truth and nothing but the truth? Or is it some made up bullshit story, by some stupid reporter or network, that is crying out for attention like a baby? The one thing for sure is, that the only news that I have been keeping up with are positive or good news and technology news. Nothing more, nothing less. The rest, is just bullshit.
