The American public along with the media are a hilarious bunch of hypocritical imbeciles to witness in action. Take these two examples: 

Old man gets illegally recorded and leaked to the media some un-politically correct statements. End result: Forced to sell business.

Now for the next scenario. Not as old man breaks the law he signed not even a year ago. Trades for a deserter who abandoned his fellow comrades in a war zone in exchange for 5 key opposition leaders. End result: Apologizes and says he won’t do it again. 

This is the America I love. The one who tries to out-outrage everyone and cares about the things that are trivial. While true that in the US Military we don’t leave someone behind, the circumstances of this deserter  make that line of reasoning fallacious. He wasn’t captured under heroic circumstances defending his fellow comrades in arms he left on his own accord. In more civilized times he would have been put to death for his actions.

It appears as though “journalism” has taken a turn for the worst. Long gone are the days of objective and cutting edge news reports. It used to be that journalists broke stories and brought to light things people ought to know. Instead those stories have been replaced by politicized news agendas and ratings hunters. Instead of holding people accountable and standing up for the people, the media has decided to only report what they feel we ought to know or fits their views. It is a shame that if one wants to hear news they have to do so on the internet but that is what things have come to. The media has always thought their role was more important than it was in reality but thanks to the internet here’s a news flash – we don’t need the news media anymore. We don’t need their archaic newspapers. We don’t need their 24/7 coverage of absolutely nothing. We especially don’t need someone to tell us how to feel or think about an event happening in the world. We are all capable of critical thinking and absorbing information for ourselves. 

It baffles me the amount of coverage this “royal baby” is getting. You would think this baby is special or something which we all know is simply not true. It poops and cries like any other baby. The current state of the “royal family” is  a joke in the modern age of government. All civic and political responsibilities are legislated out to more qualified individuals. So what is it that the royal family does besides have lots of money and wave at crowds? They are essentially permanent celebrities by birthright and nothing more. Mere relics of the now defunct British Empire.
