The reason I stopped following the “news”…
My morning routine is simple: coffee, blog update, put on ESPN and quickly check the goings-on around the world.
I don’t allow myself to spend more than a few minutes reading the “news”. I do this because the media rarely reports the news, instead they create it. The descriptive words they use show their tilt. And the “news” is littered with Trump updates, events of racism and click bait articles about why I should care what a celebrity did or didn’t do.
Seriously?! The media today has lost their way and those in the middle are the big losers. I am not a conservative nor am I a liberal. I am neither of these because I use common sense and understand that extremes are rarely ever good. I am neither conservative nor liberal because I understand that not everyone thinks like me and I am okay with a world of diverse thinkers. I didn’t vote for Trump, but understand that if you did that does not make you a racist. I didn’t vote for Clinton either and understand that if someone did that doesn’t make them a liberal blow-hard.
What really bothers me is the fact that because the media is 100% click-bait, I lose. I can’t follow the news today without wanting to jump off a bridge. I cannot keep up with what is going on in the world around me because I cannot trust the reporting source. And it is the loss of trust that is why many people like me are sick and tired of the “news”.
I wish there was a reporting website that simply reported the news without influencing the article or story with their own agenda. Is that so much to ask??
