I Get It, Too: Things I wish my liberal friends would read | Rachel Lucas


Rachel Lucas on the Newtown, CT, shootings:

I want to say “I don’t get it”, but I do get it: this kind of story is great for TV ratings, so it’s given 24/7 coverage. The hundreds of kids getting chemo this afternoon and who are probably going to die agonizing deaths in the next few months aren’t “exciting” and don’t get ratings or Presidential pressers or Tweets from celebrities. The media tells us to be upset about these particular 20 children, therefore we are, because we are well-trained and it feels great to go along with the crowd.

I wish we would realize that there is more to living than the media would have us believe.
