Really? Holy frig. It's not what I've seen here. But when you were a kid, did you ever get so bored that you beat some guy's door down and break into their wine cellar or something along those lines? I wouldn't.
Yep. A lot of the news is pretty biased, looking only at the royals, Afghans and politics. That's why SBS shows news from different countries. Sometimes the news is pretty interesting if it's from a different country i.e. Germany.
If you look at American World News, I bet a lot of it's just American news. America is WAY too proud of themselves when really, they shouldn't be. If Paris Hilton got married or some crap, we wouldn't even care but they'll show it on any news.
And that's why civilised people need to have more of a say in things.
Nothing until you find something to be happy about (like chicken or something).
Australia's government is stupid as well. Our state minister is firing people left, right, and centre because they can't afford it. They can't afford new jobs because some old rake who's supposed to run the country is spending everything on taxes and other unnecessary crap.
My ex lied about a school shooting at his sisters school. The school was threatened, his sister was scared, his other sister made a bet with him it wouldn't happen, and his mom sent them to school regardless of the threat. Nothing happened but he pretended there was a shooting because he wanted to be right.
Nothing new. but having the News Media go global has made the world SEEM worse off. actual stats as provided by the companies in the know (usually off things like the FBI's website) show that violent crimes are actually on the down load compared to 30 years ago, and going down. The News Media loves to sensationalize stories though in any way they can and make a controversy out of anything they can. Its all about the ratings.
But it was a reason, wasn't it? /Yeah, still not good.
There's also the bored people. Some poor 14-year-old boy got bashed because of it. A shop also got broken into the other day and owners live in that store, so their safe was broken into which had all their personal belongings, a heap of money and a few packets of cigarettes.
Makes you wonder what's wrong with people these days.
