So here's what I'm being bombarded with right now:
- We're getting a play-by-play of lines of thousands of people gawking at/'paying respect' to Ted Kennedy. Yup, just lines of people shuffling by his casket. (Is this really something we need to sit at home and watch? How is this news?)
- A girl abducted by a creepy sex offender is finally freed after 18 years, after having two children (via rape) with this old monster. (OK, this is definitely news worthy, but they seem to be avoiding some important questions in this case, but then again, that's typical.)
- A broom stands on it's own, the new store owner is milking it for all it's worth. Pretty pathetic. REALLY not news worthy!
- Swimsuit model's ex killed her, cut off her fingers and pulled out her teeth, dumped her in a dumpster and killed himself. Now a person of interest blah blah blah... Seriously, other people are missing...STILL with a chance of being found, yet we're being bombarded with this sensational nonsense because hey, sex sells. Really... have you no shame?
So why am I watching the news? Well, I'm keeping it tuned in to see if possibly they might mention this V-Tech incident. It's really sickening to things they choose to report on over something as important and bizarre (Virginia Tech's 3rd incident) as this.
Also, I found this neat little forum that has a board just about Virginia Tech incidents: http://curezone.com/forums/f.asp?f=828
----------------UPDATE------------------OK, 1:13 PM and they finally mentioned this case; I've been watching since about 11AM. Even had a little clip of some sheriff speaking. It was so fleeting though! They mentioned there were two other incidents involving Virginia Tech but did not go into any details.
Is it just me that feels like this is an episode of the Twilight Zone?
