so basically the past couple days the only thing on the news has been about the situation in syria and its starting to piss me off. I realize there is a serious situation there but Fox News, CNN, NBC are intentionally trying to scare us. A few of my friends spent all day yesterday preparing for the end of the world. You know what they did? They went out and spent hundreds of dollars on ammo, food, water, gasoline etc. They did all of this because the American media scared them so much that they thought the only thing to do was spend money. the only thing that sells better than sex is fear and a lot of my fellow Americans let the media warp their sense of reality and its pretty damn sad.
Yeah I get what you're trying to say OP. Watch "Bowling For Columbine", it actually compares violence and the news and how they are related. I stopped watching CNN after some jackass reporter said the boston bomber did what he did because of "Rap music, skateboards, and marijuana". It's ridiculous how far off the news is these days.
If this really isn't a troll (which i'm still 98.6% certain it is), then apparently you aren't either. Did it ever occur to you that the problem here lies more with your dumbass fucking friends than with the media?
