Over the past few years, I have slowly weaned myself from “mainstream” news. I no longer have a TV, so I don’t watch CNN, MSNBC, FOXNews or the major network news. I no longer subscribe to the Washington Post. I have cut down how often I visit websites like cnn.com or foxnews.com. One of the primary reasons I stopped consuming such outlets was that I became sick of the tripe that they considered news: What did Bradgelina do this week? How did some pop tart disgrace herself today? What movie star or sports figure was arrested recently? And this focus on the inane crosses ideological and political boundaries as both liberal outlets like CNN and conservative ones like FOXNews engaged in it. The reason being is that it brings in viewers, and money is the almighty focus for all the networks, regardless of their political beliefs.
I was reminded of this recently when I glanced at the CNN website (shame on me!), and saw that the most popular story was entitled:
News for zombies, by zombies, and now about zombies. If this is not a sign that our culture has rotted to the core, I don’t know what is.
