I am watching the news right now (as usual). They are reporting on the death of Pope John Paul II. The guy reporting from Rome was talking about the announcements from the Vatican, and how quiet it was on the square. The only thing one could hear were the bells. Here comes the annoying part. That dumb ass says – “Let’s listen to the bells for few moment.”, or something in those lines. After he said that he just continued to talk. He never stopped to give us, the viewers, a chance to hear the bells and observe in a silence. That guy just continued to talk, probably for another three or four minutes. Once again instead of shutting the heck up, he simple repeated few peaces of the information he had just served us with. Then the news just switched away from him and to the next thing they had to talk about in regards to this event.
Reporting guys, receiving bit too much money – “Damn it, dude! I know you get paid by the salable, but Shut up already.”
Reporters and the media can brake a man, they can make a man a hero. Very often, though, they provide us with a lot of nonsense. When they run out of information to report, they begin to make their own stuff and pull “experts” from one place or another.
The media is a good thing, but very often it tends to take things a bit too far.
