Don't Let It Suck You In...
With the recent tragedy in Orlando it is easy to get sucked in to the non stop media coverage of the events that took place at Pulse Night Club. Even for someone like me who has a general disdain for mainstream media, I find my self angry and curious about details and motives. But don't let it suck you in!
I hate to say it, but events like this are the network's dream. Not because they wish this to happen, but it is very good for ratings. So they will drag this story out for as long as they can, creating breaking news out of the smallest details. Creating fear, panic, and evoking emotions to persuade or influence you in a certain direction depending on which channel you watch.
My heart goes out to the lives taken, and the family members that are left behind to pick up the pieces. But do not let the media suck you in. It is not good for YOUR mental health.
