With the convenience of 24/7/365 news service on radio, television, smartphones, iPad and what have you, I get sick of hearing the same “news” recycled and rehashed over and over again because they usually make me angry.
News stories on legislating abortion using our tax dollars, gay rights, politicians unable to balance the budget, people offended by religious traditions, celebrity mishaps, rumors of wars, and political stories that try to pit one group of people against another. The list goes on, and on, and on. They’re like soap operas. You can tune in at any time and pick up where you left off.
Remember the little boy and his dad on the Hanes sock commercial when they said, “Sick of it”? Yeah, that’s me, too!! Thankfully, I’m now weaning myself off the television.
This post was inspired by a Plinky prompt, “Are there any news stories you’re sick of hearing about?”
