The voracious appetite of the news media has been displayed by their ability to consume any type of  ridiculous information that is tossed into their putrid dumpster.  

 

If the building that Osama lived in cost one million to construct.  The U.S. government must have been the contractor.  I can remember that a few years ago a hammer cost the U.S. government over four hundred dollars.

 

The cost of constructing this mansion in Pakistan, consisting of concrete and rebar should amount to less than $30,000.00   And no one is questioning the news media or their source of this fantastic million dollar amount.

I understand the frustration.  But I wonder if words like voracious, ridiculous, and putrid dumpster are really helpful.

But, yes, I do wish that someone would question such assertions.  Facts are always helpful...

I'm not disturbed . . . just trying to make people think outside the culture box. Facts are facts . . . if anyone agrees with the information that is presented.

If the public does not agree with the information brought forth . . . then the information is just noise.

Did my adjectives get your attention . . . or was it my satire . . . or was it my noise?

Hard to read half smiles and see satire sometimes in a blog.  Sorry if I misinterpreted. :)
