Iâ€™ve never heard a more insensitive, ignorant, talkative bunch of talking heads in my life! You need a stupid question asked? Find a â€œreporter.â€ You need someone to be â€œglad it wasnâ€™t worse, cause it could have been worse?â€ Find a â€œreporter.â€ Need the highly obvious stated? Find a â€œreporter.â€
Yes, Iâ€™m watching the News about the tornado in Oklahoma. Yes, I cannot believe some of the questions â€œreportersâ€ ask survivors. Yes, I cannot believe how serious they are in â€œreportingâ€ the Obvious. I think itâ€™s stating the obvious that really gets to me. The way they lead the â€œwitnessâ€ to get the absolute worst case scenario possible. Yes, we can tell that was a building without you telling us what it used to be. Damn, those look an awful lot like downed power poles even before you pointed them out to us. I just loved the way you described that pile of cars that I was looking at as being piled up that way from the wind of the tornado. Iâ€™d have never guessed!
AAAAAAaaarrrrrrggggghhhh! Now the local News is telling us as bad as the Tornadoâ€™s are in the Midwest, we COULD suffer even worse from the inevitable Earth Quake that COULD happen here.
I know. I know. News programs are geared to the lowest common mentality of their watchers and I shouldnâ€™t be upset. News programs (reporters) have to sensationalize their small bit of coverage (so youâ€™ll tune in again). They have to remind you that it could have been a lot worse. Dicks.
Now Iâ€™m waiting for NObama to break in and tell us how terrible it is and that we will ALL pull together to comfort the survivors and how he hopes they all have Obamacareâ€¦ (I mean: how can we pay attention to Benghazi, AP phone records or the IRS targeting conservatives with people dying in Oklahoma Tornadoâ€™s?)
OTT a pretty normal Monday around here. Nice Wx day for us though. Seems tomorrow it (the Wx) will be worse. Possibility of a bit of wind mixed in with the rain and we COULD have some thunder near the mountains. Prepare! Prepare!
Dang! Iâ€™ll bet I missed it cause I had to turn the News off before flinging my tv out the window. Iâ€™ll bet â€œtheyâ€ (the reporters) asked â€œWhat would happen if we had a Tornado here in the Seattle area?â€
Maybe Iâ€™m just getting old. And cranky.
