I'm aggravated. Thus, a freebie:
My husband insists on watching the news in the morning "to stay in touch". I just get aggravated. Mostly, I'm tired of the news media trying to shove their own agenda down my throat, like I'm some moron who can't think for herself. "The NEWS", whether it be from TV, newspapers, the Internet, the radio, or whatever, used to be a place you went to because you were seeking unbiased reporting of events. I'm not sure if "unbiased" was ever true, but it once, (so long ago,) seemed less biased than it is now. Now there are blatant half-truths, spins, twists and even outright lies. I was never a big fan of Mr. Trump, but let me use him for an example. At no time did he ever claim that ALL immigrants, or even all Mexican immigrants were criminals. He stated (and you can check the speech, ... please, please do) that the ILLEGAL immigrants that Mexico was SENDING HERE were mostly criminals (which is true, again you can check the facts on your own). Yet the very people who saw and recorded the speech took out a tiny part and played it over and over, twisting the meaning of the words. And people keep repeating this as if it is true! I'm so fed up with the news... people I used to respect, such as Matt Lauer, repeating this tripe and ignoring real news (like, what is up with ISIS contacting our children on social media?) to report on what nail polish color goes best with which shoes. WOW! (Matt, aren't you tired of this?)
Are you aggravated too? Good, that means you are paying attention! If so, you might like this bit of word art. It is free to download (all my stuff is), and you can download the PNG HERE and the JPEG HERE. Thanks for putting up with my rant, not normal for me, but it is my attempt at getting my blood pressure back to normal. I am grateful for your visit, come again soon.
And ENJOY! Kat D.
P.S. >>I love your comments, but if you are going to leave one for this particular post, please make it positive. I've spewed enough vitrol for all of us. Unless, of course, you are Matt Lauer, you can say whatever you want, I deserve it. LOL. Thanks!
