I Hate The Media

The things that piss you off when you can’t sleep.

Why is this girl in the news? White doesn’t seem enough. Rich doesn’t seem enough. It just seems bizarre. Dozens of little girls are abducted daily. Yet, instead of us finding out about local cases, I hear about cases from Utah and California, where I get to hear about the tragedy and can’t possibly do any good.

And what’s missing from the article: if the body isn’t Samantha Runnion, then who the hell is it? And why doesn’t anyone seem to care? If this body isn’t Elizabeth Smart or Samantha Runnion, you get the sense that the body will be forgotten, as the media keeps the attention on the two little girls who somehow got to matter.
