You know its a sad state of the country when you turn on a national morning news show and are bombarded not by news that's important but 'news' of Brittney Spears, Heath Ledger and Paris Hilton. Who the hell cares?! There is a war and a pending election. There are tornadoes and snow storms, heck there are even some feel-good, happy stories that could be told. No, I get to hear about stupid celebrities and their stupid behavior. I get to know more about the psychological status of attention hungry morons than of the state of the economic stimulus plan. This country is getting dumber by the minute thanks to the media. Its not enough that the public school system is a joke, health care is inept and the economy is in the toilet. No, they have to concentrate on catering to the Jerry Springer watching, People magazine reading crowd and perpetuate ignorance.
