The boredom continues...

I am a recovering news junkie. The Gadhaffi coverage/complete dismal of the war in Ivory Coast over the past month has almost made me give up televised news cold. Now the news media has become obsessed with Donald Trumps ranting about Barack Obama's birth certificate. Again.

Now on one hand I think he and his sideshow is hilarious. There is only a special group of individuals buying tickets to see that and be entertained by his foolishness. But to devote actual news time to this is irritating.
I am over this birther talk, that was so 2000 and late. He was born in Hawaii. If you doubt that he was born in Hawaii and believe he was born in Kenya, where is Obama's mother's passport? I mean, had the poor woman even been to Kenya? Which 18 year old is going to Kenya without their parents knowing about it? Do you know who straight up was not born in the U.S.? John McCain. He was born in Panama. He was born on a military base in the Panama Canal so I guess it's "American soil" but seriously who is more foreign? Last I checked, Hawaii was a state with actual representation in the legislature. It's so psychotic it's not even interesting anymore.
News media, in my opinion is supposed to uncover the truth or at the very least, make it it's aim. The goal should be to inform. Politics depends on the ignorance of the masses. Where is the balance?
