News (May1, 2017)

Negativity at its finest
Expression of cynicism
Washing of the truth
Spun dreams pure fiction.

Author's note: If one were to watch the local newscast, from Buffalo, New York, one would think that Buffalo is, a haven for criminal, with the lead story focusing on crimes committed, there. Whether, it be ABC, CBS, or NBC affiliates. I wonder, do the executive producers realize, how bad of an image, they portray Buffalo, New York to outsiders, like myself? I know, bad news sells more commercials, as people look on, at the damage/death that other people are experiencing, but they have to be, at some point, think, enough is enough, as the market is oversaturated, with these grim reports.

Spun dreams is ironic contrast to cynicism and truth washing. Provocative images. Yes.

Well, I did leave out Fox News and CNN, from my listing of network news sources, Susan. Hmm, should I have included, Trump, as his own source of news? Now that's a scary thought.

I agree, Therisa, the accumulated effect of the news is dismal, discouraging and depressing. I know there are good news sories out there too, but more likely to find them on facebook than the news..........

Unfortunately, Buffalo does not stand alone in terrible news reporting. Good one.
