  • Good advice for the media and Hollywood here.

    I found some great advice for the media and Hollywood stars the other day. Check it out on the attachment below.

    Here's why I have a problem with the media. I have noticed a growing trend with the news anchors. They talk about things as if they are the authorities on that subject when things they say show they have no clue what they are talking about. For instance, the other night I was watching a news cast about a major fire. The news anchors kept saying things about "the oxygen tanks on the firefighters' backs." Well here's a news flash for those morons, OXYGEN IS HIGHLY FLAMMABLE AND EXPLODES WHEN EXPOSED TO HIGH HEAT! I should know, I am a firefighter, and that tank I wear has fresh air in it, not oxygen. I've noticed other "inaccuracies" also in their reporting of fires and other emergencies so this leads me to believe that their reporting on the war in Iraq is just as faulty and inaccurate. I do not believe they tell the whole story, I believe they only tell what they think will pull the heart strings and sound most dramatic and scarey. So screw the media. Learn what you're reporting on or don't even bother. All they do is insult our intelligence when they report [email protected]$$ed like that. I won't even start about those Hollywood stars that are all of a sudden political geniuses and war experts. They are soooo much smarter than all of us peon simpletons huh. Anyway, enough on my little rant about the stupidity of modern media, just had to get that off of my chest. Whew, now I feel better. I'm sure I'll get ripped for this one, but oh well, won't be the first time.

        Sorry about that Admiral. Had a moment of bad judgement.

        But, I do have one question. how come I put up a picture that has three bad words on it and it gets scrubbed, yet I have seen many postings on here with more dirty words than that poster had and nothing done about it? Just wondering.

          RANT WARNING!

          Honestly I'm getting sick of ALL the media at the moment from there portrayals of the Iraq war to all the freaking hollywood BS new... I DONT CARE IF PARIS HILTON IS GOING TO JAIL OR THAT SHE SOLD HERSELF TO GET OUT FOR A DAY!!!!............... It's a joke nowadays (maybe always) that it's bout the money they get and the view they put out "Hey lefties..... i got a war for you protest about" or if they're not doing that they're at each others throats trying to get the only survivors of a plane crash or the survivors of the mine that collapsed a year or two ago in tassi's interview....... only time i watch the news is the sports segments to see how my teams went it's becoming that bad.

          Well i could go on but i think this should be enough for you guys too see how utterly annoyed at the current media i am.

            Crap, I don't even chance the sports anymore. All they ever talk about is that cheater Bonds anymore. I've never been a basketball fan, NFL sucks, I only care about college football, and baseball is on it's way to being a piece of crap too. Nothing lasts anymore does it?

              Well if the stories is 5 minutes old it's too old it seems for the media these days i mean why don't we hear anything about whats happening to the pakistanis after the massive quake? why is ALL the news negative? why is the views always very left (libbies) or very right (pubbies) and know view from both perspectives taken? either way the media is a thorn in modern society and some of the stories lately (one in particular) has me skipping TV for a while.

                  No No No. Paris is old news. Lindsey Lohan is the breaking news now. Or then, depending on how up to date you have to be.
