MH370: US Media And The Silliness Has To Come To An End!

What follows is truly pathetic and denotes exactly why media contributes to the "dumbing-down" of the nation. A CNN segment in which Don Lemon actually moved to a form of reality TV for sake on entertaining the  inquisitive and added to a level of disrespect for the tragic losses of MH-370 on possible via cable network news.

My reaction to what follows is comparable to what it has to be like to sit and watch shows like Duck Dynasty and other inane mind-drowning TV shows. Shows that certainly offer a few chuckles, but in aggregate contributes to terrible television, and grubby looking facial hair where you would least expect to find it.  Some reality shows seem to actually entertain to the point of inseminating and birthing clone-like behavior that can be described only as gossipy, voyeuristic and the out-right ridiculous.

What follows is an example of the out-right ridiculous.

CNN's Don Lemon: Is Black Hole Theory For Missing Jet 'Preposterous?'

Before we move to an example of one television talk show host who seems to have  tired of the droning on and on speculation for sake of entertainment, allow me to reach back to my analogies above and admit to my victimization. 

Why do I, from time to time, sit and watch "Findings Bigfoot?"  I know damned well, the show will never produce an actual video of the legendary and fabled creature.  In fact, and to be precise I also know that sounds the investigators claim to hear, that I never hear, in no way denotes what they call "Sasquatch."   Better yet, I think the more common vernacular on the show is "Squatch."

So, I surely know the attraction of entertainment for entertainment sake. I draw the line, however, when it comes to acquiring information and delving into serious topic exploration or some lack-luster alternative. The alternative directly contributes so what I call "LIVs" or "LIPS" (Low-information Voters or Low Information People). People who will spend little to no time on self -education or seeking information while preferring 'false' news (e.g., Fox News) developed to influence the minds of the  gullible influence (able).

After re-watching the CNN spectacle and silliness, it was refreshing to see this 1:00 minute video from MSNBC.

Why do I sit and watch "Findings Bigfoot?"  I know damned well, the show will never produce an actual video of the legendary and maybe fabled creature.  In fact, and to be precise I also know that sounds they claim to hear, that I never hear, in no way denotes what they call "Sasquatch." For sake of being precise allow me use the vernacular the show investigators use for the fabled creature: " Squatch."

I often criticize Mika for cowering to Scarborough. Today was a bit different, but I will wager conversation ensued after the show was off the air. When, the conservative name sake want to move to 'low-hanging' reality TV, he is accustomed to having his way.
