The media are thanking the Media Gods and sacrificing their blackberrys for this ongoing flu epidemic story. They sit around in newsrooms praying for the next big thing - an O.J. type car chase, low-flying jets, plane crashes, politicians jumping off ship or ship-to-ship, earthquakes, job losses, bankruptcies, gun fights, celebs off the rails, missing children (sickening), car bombings, Israeli missiles - they love this stuff - they do. They live for it. They make entire sections devoted to it.
Now I'm not immune to this either. I'm not ashamed to admit that I do post commentary OP/ED's here on Liberty Post, but not because I have huge advertising revenue filling my pockets (my new Etsy shop will do that: wink) - but because I have a damn opinion about it all. (usually with regards to human rights issues...I get so steamed) And hell ya, my traffic goes up.
