How is this helpful?August 28th, 2013 |
So. How in the world is it helpful, in ANY way, for an item on the national news to be how a Chinese boy has had his eyes gouged out? Terrible and tragic and, unless I'm missing something, none of my business. Now I want to say that I haven't actually read the story because I have a thing about not helping (and clicking is helping) when the "media" tries to send out just a little more misery into the world. But I read very fast and so, just from the virtue of headlines, have gathered that this horror has occurred.
And so I'm just that little bit more depressed. So, thanks non-journalism media, for helping make my world a slightly darker place with no offsetting positive on offer.
