My News Flash
I came to the realisation before that in this day and age of mass news broadcasting old events are not news events. News has started to only have breaking stories and no follow up events. For instance what is happening to the victims of hurricane Katrina? This disaster was said to be the biggest in America's history and all of a sudden its like it didn't happen at all. The tsunami in Asia is another example. It just seems to me that if it didn't happen that day I'm not going to hear about it anywhere but Wikipedia and this bothers me because I think people get too caught up in the latest Britney, Kevin, Bob, Marky, Randal or who ever wedding and don't take the time to at least realise that nothing is perfect in this world. I'm not saying that reading about Britney's life isn't interesting and a great way to distract your mind from life but there are other things that should also be widely known to the public. Sorry CNN you guys just don't cut it.
