They Call it News.

I don’t know what it’s like in your town, but in Phoenix, Arizona many news casts are a joke! If they were serving it for dinner, I’d say the meatloaf had not enough meat and too much loaf. Instead of hard news, we get two hours of light conversation with a little news sprinkled here and there. We get such stories as a cat being rescued from a tree. Now, this is important to the family to which the cat belongs, but not worthy of news time when there are serious items to report from around the world. The poor grammar is probably an area we could discuss on another day. All this must be part of the “dumbing down” of America I keep hearing about.
