No Headlines today

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Ripped from the Headlines.”

Click over to whatever website you visit most frequently to get news. Find the third headline on the page. Make sure that headline is in your post.

Well this could be slightly embarrassing I guess, but I do not read newspapers, or even go online looking for the news. I will listen to the news on the radio, and occasionally watch the news headlines on TV, but apart from that I don’t bother. Yes occasionally you will find me transfixed on some travesty unveiling before our eyes on National or even Global TV, I am not completely cold. However I just find that the news is more like a horror show than a news and current affairs show. And most current affairs shows are about bad neighbors and the latest fat pill!

There is no good news anymore! Everything is so horrible, people and animals being killed in more gruesome ways than ever before, the murder and mayhem, ensuing in riots, natural disasters and plane crashes. I’m sorry it is just so depressing. I know when something happens, we need to be told about it, but over and over and over and over and over………it all gets a bit too much. And they all fight over who gets the more gruesome images.

Football stars and sporting ‘heroes’ are not super heroes (nor villains), they are just people. Don’t raise them so high on golden pedestals and then push them off. What about the REAL Heroes? Armed Forces, Police, Fire and Ambos……..these guys literally put their life on the line every day, we rarely hear a good news story about them! Who cares what football player supposedly took what drug and then lied about it. Give me a break!

And finance………….seriously before the GFC nobody really cared about anyone’s dollar (apart from Stock brokers and bankers I guess), now it takes up 1/4 news………….it goes a little bit up, a little bit down, round and round. In a week it really doesn’t change that much does it. In one ear and out the other, blah, blah, blah. Maybe I should pay more attention, but I just can’t.

OK so some Movie legend or old politician dies, that’s sad, and yes I would like to hear about it, but just once or twice, not constantly for weeks on end. Let them die in dignity and peace.

Honestly folks I am not heartless, in fact I think it is the opposite, I take too much on board. But I can only take so much on board and then I become depressed and morbid and no one wants to be around me then! So now I have had my rant……….here is some cute puppies (care of Google images) to brighten our day, honestly it is what I would rather look at!
