American Media is WAY Too Self-Absorbed

Culture, Rants

Went to the Drudge Report today, and saw this.

Aw, come on! Give me a break! The American flag at the bottom of the ocean?! “Summer canceled”?? I’m so sick of the media, really. And I don’t even watch television, so I don’t know how you TV-watchers can endure this junk day after day and minute after minute! The media is making it seem like our entire country, our entire form of government is totally ruined, and that Americans are wringing their hands in angst and despair because of the oil spill!!

Come on! Get some perspective!

Of course the spill is a mess, of course it’s horribly tragic, and OF COURSE the hole should be plugged and the problem fixed. But it is not the end of the United States of America as we know it! What kind of message is the media sending by spewing out their own black fiilth, depicting our country as a bunch of whining, worrying idiots whose entire summer is “canceled” because Obama can’t dive down to the bottom of the ocean and put a cork in it! These images and “news” “stories” serve to weaken our country and our country’s honor in the eyes of other countries.

Is the media and the American government just BEGGING for a war, or something? What do you think other crazy foreign leaders are going to think when they see our photo of the American flag under dirt at the bottom of the ocean– a photo that other AMERICANS put up! They’re not going to feel sorry for us, no. They’re going to think that we are weak and in chaos, and think that this is their moment to strike.


Get some guts, media and government. We are NOT WEAK! And out summer is NOT canceled! And don’t you dare post a photo of our flag in the sludge at the bottom of the ocean to depict us as weak and vulnerable!

    What is so sad about this is that it kicks those who are already negatively affected by the spill. That’s nice to tell all those folks who make a living off the coastline that it is the end for them–no hope whatsoever. Gees, thanks for the upbeat, positive thoughts there media. I can’t watch the news anymore. It’s just so darn negative.

    THANK YOU!!! It’s not even the worst ecological disaster this country has seen. It sucks. But we will recover and move on. The coast WILL recover!!! Or maybe I’m just an optimist. =)

    “…because Obama can’t dive down to the bottom of the ocean and put a cork in it!” LOL! Love that! πŸ˜€ But don’t get me started on Obama and this oil spill… I’ve been saying all along that I think this is Obama’s “new Pearl Harbor”! Shhh… don’t tell anyone! πŸ˜‰

    Maybe he could just walk across the water and rebuke the leaking pipe? The image of the flag is wrong and completely despicable.

    Amen! I don’t read or watch the news. And I usually turn off the radio when the news comes on. Its all negative, and I feel so much better when I don’t hear it. No wonder people who watch the news all the time are so depressed. All they ever get to hear are how idiots are ruining the world. Its a waste of time… And I am going to have a good summer!

    Personally, I don’t think that America should get all depressed and discouraged about the oil spill. It reminds me of Revelation where 1/3 of the sea became Wormwood. I don’t know… maybe that’s it? There’s also the other place where the sea became like blood, and oil is usually reddish… It’s probably just a ploy to get oil prices to go WAY up. πŸ™

    @ Secondary Roads: OMG! Just got a great big laugh out of that! He claims to be the Messiah after all, huh? πŸ˜€
