It's amazing how relevant that picture is.

You think that's bad? My local news station is still covering the Amanda Todd story.

Let that sink in a little.

You live in vancouver too?

No, but close. I'm in the Gulf Islands area.

What else is there to cover? she killed herself, they can literally just say that, "In other news, Amanda Todd killed herself due to online bullying, Now to sports!".

Every time a kid does something "cool" (Fundraising) or something regarding some kind of anti-bullying group happens etc, they feel the need to at least mention her. You'd think it would only be occasional that a news station mentions something so petty as those things, but you haven't seen Global.

For example, just the other day, they did an entire story on a bug that can jump on water. Dead ******* serious. Apparently nothing ever happens in B.C.

>Bug that can jump on water

what's next? Rock that can stand still for long periods of time?

Another story that they're jumping right onto is the one where this nurse killed herself because she fell for a prank call.



And they're blaming the prank callers.

"Hello, Nurse Janet speaking."
"Yes, Is your refrigerator running?"
"Why yes, I think it is."
"THEN YOU BETTER GO CATCH IT!"

"In other news, a Nurse at the local hospital killed herself today. The only note she left before the suicide said "The fridge is running.", Police are trying to figure out what it means."

I don't know why this is confusing, but you can't really just let a POW go around doing what he likes. At least we give water to our prisoners, that's more than most of our combatants can say.

It's on a website about celebrities... what do you expect them to report on?

*Palestine.
User avatar #147 to #145 - respectmyauthority (12/19/2012) [-]
bombs were being shot between israel and palestine... both countries were taking the heat
should have clarified, mb
#160 to #147 - lesmiserables (12/19/2012) [-]
That's the problem with "real" news. It's always biased. Or at least people will view it as such. If you make an article about the terror in Israel, then you're a Zionist mass-murderer, but If you make an article about the genocide in Gaza, then you're a antisemite on Jihad. the political message in garbage-news is much more subtle and manipulating,

Its all just entertainment now. Entertainment and buzz because that's what sells.

I challenge you to make a successful newpaper/channel/site that only reports on the major happenings these days.
User avatar #146 to #144 - respectmyauthority (12/19/2012) [-]
it's not the fault of the news outlets necessarily, because obviously outlets are just broadcasting what people want to see.... thus the problem is with people, and how they just don't give a **** about anything important.

that's what i'm mad about.
#153 to #146 - gygaxlgargus (12/19/2012) [-]
Then there isn't much I can suggest. I think people are super spoiled and self-centered nowadays. That's part of the problem. I really shouldn't say much because I myself am probably quite spoiled, but if nobody says it, it won't get said. I think the world could use an attitude adjustment to be honest... I just pray God won't go too crazy with it like He has in the past.

You... mentioned God on FunnyJunk and uttered your opinion? HOW DARE THOU!

The media clasps to the only thing that makes it live: idiots and "bandwagoneers." Which, I suppose are both mutually inclusive. You can't have a bandwagon with out idiots and idiots can't live if they don't have a bandwagon to jump on.

I don't think people really care about Hostess going out of business, more the less they just like the fact they have a wagon to hop on and feel adequate because they're apart of something that doesn't matter. The media journalists are smart enough to realize people like this exist so they grab ahold of them so the story will go on.

Same with Amanda Todd, The guy that shot up the movie theatre (his name escapes me right now, sorry,) and the recent elementary school shootings in Connecticut. Now, don't get me wrong, the latter two are unfortunate events however people jump up on their highchairs and spouts things out (when 99% of the time they haven't a clue of what they speak of) which gives the media the room to bust the door down and use them to push their own agenda. Which everybody seems to have these days, a damn agenda.

The important stuff, like what you said, people getting bombed and what not over in Palestine/Israel gets overlooked.

tl;dr: People are dumbasses and the media are ass holes with a damn agenda.

>Implying journalism was alive in 2012   
>Implying journalism started the same year the printing press was invented.   
   
Tabloids started in 1919(The kind with gossip and sensationalism)   
   
The first periodical was published in 1594.   
   
So anything resembling journalism existed between those years.

I remember about a year back, a fairly big news paper in DK cleared the frontpage in order to bring an article about cheaters in wordfeud for iOS. Talk about first world problems.

No, Shut the **** up you stupid **** . Journalism isn't dead. It's just your to damn stupid to search for an actual news site. They're out there. THOUSANDS of them. The number of companies who actually broadcast something worth knowing outweigh the number of people who broadcast **** like what you showed us. The loudest news station doesn't speak for the rest of them. Christ, What the **** happened to people. "OH, A WEBSITE BASED ON HOLLYWOOD NEWS IS TELLING ME THAT LADY GAGA HAS A PENIS, WTF HAPPENED TO JOURNALISM?! HERP DERP". Well maybe you shouldn't be looking at the ******* site in the first damn place if it bothers you!! Christ! Watch the Young Turks. Watch Current TV. Actually GIVE a **** about **** that's happening instead of **** like that. Your stupidity knows no bounds.

Plus, this is a pretty interesting story.

"She unfollowed him from Twitter.
Later she told him they were breaking up."

Well I don't know about Current TV being a good news source, more like propaganda.

People are commenting saying I should calm down but I'm sorry this stuff has been going on for years. This is what your civilization has come down too. The dumbest speak the loudest and I'm sick and tired of it. It's literally post after post after post and bitching and more bitching about **** they could figure out if they applied more brain cells then it takes to jack off.

People come on here to laugh. We laugh at the mediocrity of the media. Some people are as ignorant as you say, but this is still not the place to expect serious journalism. Or serious anything for that matter.
