I know that my parents still watch it, religiously.
A few years ago, I quit watching it. I can't remember why, I just did. I think it started to bother me. All the depressing things going on in the world mixed with all of the fluff. I can't remember, I just stopped watching it.
Except for in the mornings, I turn the news on so I know what the weather and traffic are like, but of course I hear all of the other news as well.
So, I (reluctantly) watch Fox13 News, mostly because:
1.The kidlets love Big Budah
2.We don't have cable and our box only gets good reception on 13
3.I think that the anchors are a bit twitty, so they make me laugh. They don't seem to know how to deliver a sad or sobering story, I take it all with a grain of salt.
As soon as the weather or traffic come on, my eyes and ears are glued.
Yesterday however, for some unknown reason, as I was cleaning, I watched the News
Seriously, I have no idea why, I would switch the channels and keep it on a channel that was airing news, even with bad reception!
When Aaron came home, I told him I had been watching the news all day and that I thought I had better stop watching it, so I did.
Aaron and I had a very nice conversation about his day and some other things - including, discussing stuff I had seen on the news. After our conversation, Aaron went downstairs to do some stuff.
I began watching the news again!
I don't know what I was thinking!
I won't tell you what the story was (I don't even know what channel it was), but they were talking about a statistic among Americans. I couldn't believe the statistic! So, I YELLED at the television,
"WHAT? I DON'T BELIEVE THAT AT ALL!"
To that, Aaron hollered back,
"Maybe you should stop watching the News!"
Then I started thinking back on my day. Had I been yelling at the television all day?
Embarrassingly, I admit...indeed, I had.
Now, I remember why I don't watch the News, it pisses me off.
