"Britney News" makes me sick

Usually I'm feeling fine for being over 40. But the last couple of days I haven't felt so good. Headaches, fatigue, and a never ending pain in my upper back have left me feeling really, really sick.

But what's making me feel even sicker is having to listen to the latest on that twenty-something, airhead Britney Spears. For Christ Sakes, who cares? I sure as hell don't. Why are all the media shows and even the NEWS shows going on and on about this fracked up woman? I have to keep switching channels every time her name/face pops up on the screen because I just can't take it anymore.

I keep thinking about what TV was like when I was a teenager. I don't remember this kind of insanity getting coverage. The news seemed to have real news stories. What has happened to the media? Who has taken over and why are they filling the free airwaves with this trash? I am absolutely sick of hearing about famous young girls getting thrown in jail, knocked up, married, divorced, ect. ect.

How about some real news? How about giving us something that will actually affect our lives: for better or worse, I don't care. Just anything other than B.S. (which is what I've taken to calling her.)

Yes, Ms. B.S. please take your newest boy toy and flee the country. and don't bother coming back.

I know; it is really beyond annoying at this point. She is so over-rated in my opinion. I would even think the media would be sick and tired of that same old topic.

I, too, am tired of all the coverage on Miss Spears. She needs help, not publicity.
I think the media thrives on drama and works deliberately to create it. They are constantly telling people how bad the world is, how bad the government is, and how bad people are. We don't need that kind of input.
When I was young, I wanted to be a journalist. Then I found out what it takes to get a story published and thought politics would be a more honest profession.

You're so right. But it's not only Britney, please don't forget about Paris-Jailbird-Hilton, etc. etc.
