I’m going to quit. I figure if I write about it maybe it will help me keep my word.
I have to quit watching television news. It’s becoming a problem. It’s making my life miserable.
Finished with you three!
“Millions of people die every year – you could be next – we’ll tell you how to protect you and your family – next hour…”
“And for our international news, here is a photo of a 3 month old kitten, stuck in a tree in Germany…”
“The War on Terror, let’s find out what the stars think!”
There used to be a term called ‘yellow journalism‘. The term has just evolved into – cable news!
You want to know WHY there are so many Americans that believe we are in the end of days? Why they buy rapture insurance and have their bags packed? Why do Americans believe this?
Because they watch cable news and that’s pretty much the gist of it.
Anyway, I’m quitting. I’m quitting cable news. I can’t do it anymore. I start SCREAMING at the television. It gets to me.
Then since I’ve been yelling at the television all day – it has lead to me screaming at other small appliances. Yesterday I cussed out my toaster. My toaster doesn’t deserve that. That’s right, I’m quitting cable news for the sake of my toaster.
It’s definitely not for my printer. That stuck up little printer had it coming.
