Ebola, ISIS, And Elections, Oh My!

22 Oct

Am I the only one who is sick of hearing about these three topics?  Every day the media is bombarding us with “information” about Ebola, ISIS, and the upcoming elections.  Granted, some of what is being broadcast, tweeted, posted, etc. is good, solid information.  However, there is also the extent of coverage and exaggeration of information that is driving me nuts.

Yes, I get it, there is Ebola.  I understand it’s now in the United States.  What I don’t get is the media getting all the public in a frenzy with their coverage and then write/broadcast that we shouldn’t freak out and we’re getting paranoid.  Really?!  Whose fault is that?

Then there is ISIS.  Yes, it is a very serious issue and obviously needs to be addressed, but does the media need to scare the crap out of us so we feel that we can’t go anywhere in public without fear of a terrorist act occurring?

My “favorite” time of year….elections.  It’s really too bad it coincides with Fall, which is the best season, in my opinion.  How many more commercials do we need to be subjected to?  Yes, each party, I’m fully aware that “this” candidate from the opposing party did something “awful” and how dare we even think to vote for them.

How about we just have commercials with fact sheets…or have a twenty questions of each candidate format?  Enough of the bashing/exaggerating/lying ads…we know what each party is doing and it’s annoying…stop it already!

I’m not an idiot…I can see through the commercials and know you’re stretching the truth by the mile.  I just want the facts about each candidate from each party.  If you can’t do that, just can the ads and let me get back to my favorite shows!
