Typically of the media, and it’s financial need to appeal to the lowest common denominator amongst the populous…we are deluged in stories that really have no business being in the domain of a truly empathetic society.
Yep, here comes Kanye again, dragging himself out from under the fat arse of the social whore he chose to represent the true values he apparently claims. Frankly, even as a musician, I have no interest in the Grammy awards or any other awards come to that. These award ceremonies are like politics, undermined by political motives and financial reward…and voted on by a majority of morons. If he had a valid stance, a real issue to talk about…then his actions might be appreciated…but he doesn’t.
And Bobbi Kristina, yes, a tragedy for sure…but really, is this news, real news? No it isn’t. But then again, she and Kanye sell copy…and the media has the majority masses pooling their hypocritical sympathy, littered with their self-serving prayers…yet meanwhile…on a planet not too far away(!)…according to Unicef…
“About 29,000 children under the age of five – 21 each minute – die every day, mainly from preventable causes.
More than 70 per cent of almost 11 million child deaths every year are attributable to six causes: diarrhoea, malaria, neonatal infection, pneumonia, preterm delivery, or lack of oxygen at birth.”
But who knows about this? How many folks comment about this, dedicate their futile prayers, or actually give a shit?? Perhaps more would, if the media houses, talk shows, junk news offices and newspapers who provide the pulp that we’re spoon fed, actually found the integrity to treat us like human beings, rather than dancing monkeys?
And who’s reading this? No-one…and you know why…because the Kardashians are on TV somewhere…whilst another 21 infants died in the time it took me to write this sentence…
The point here is simple…why do we wait for Facebook posts, the BBC (who never actually print exactly WHAT we’re supposed to be upset with anymore…thanks to “PC”), or the retards at Fox News etc…to tell us what we should be upset about at any one time? The Media is like prayer…it’s an excuse for inaction about the issues that really matter. I don’t want the world to be in uproar about who Chris Brown punched last night, or who Bill Cosby drugged in 1982…I want to see a world take action about mass murders, disease and starvation affecting millions now.
But I guess that wouldn’t sell copy…after all…you gotta make your monkey dance…to collect the cash…
