Election “News” takes away from REAL news.

Written By: Gary on November 9, 2005 No Comment

How many news stories weren’t heard yesterday (and today) because of election “news”. I say “news” that way because most of it was speculation after speculation until all the counts are done. And then they spend all day today talking about how close it was and/or why those guesstimates weren’t correct or why person X didn’t end up winning.

It’s a colossal waste of time until the real counts are done (and it’s not like we have to wait weeks for the results). There is real news they could be telling us. There are people missing, there are wars and disasters. There might even be something nice that happened in the world that they can tell us about. Heck, I’d rather hear the weather or traffic report than election speculation.


If they really want to give me election information today. Tell me the winners and give me 5 minutes of the winning candidates telling me the first dozen things that they are actually going to do/fix/implement once they take office. Condolence speeches to the losers and congratulations to the winners aren’t telling me anything…
