It’s a shame when a news source turns away from news and panders to the inane, the novel and the purely celebrity, along with the shocking.
Today, a poll is running on cnn.com asking if the Malawi legal system did the right thing by denying Madonna an adoption. I’m sure everyone pulled out their multi-volume set of Malawi Jurisprudence and examined the relevant sections.
In the so-called Information Age, too much junk is being used to fill time and bandwith. It’s like buying a box of cereal for its content and finding 20% actual cereal and a sock.
Which is why I’m switching to foreign news sources like the BBC. At least there is an obvious commitment to presenting actual news.
