Irrelevant News Stories Treated As Breaking News
At the risk of sounding insensitive, my life will not be forever altered by such “news” stories as…
- David Goldman being reunited with his son, Sean, who was taken by his mother to Brazil.
- Amanda Knox being cleared or convicted of murder in Italy.
- Alex Romero recovering after having a bicycle brake handle removed from his abdomen.
I hate the fact that NBC’s Today Show or even the cable news channels spend so much time on no-impact stories like this where individuals are involved in interesting situations that affect no one else. I think its okay to report these stories—as I said, they can be interesting. But the fourth or fifth interview with Goldman saying he misses his kid makes me change the channel.
