Dumbing down of America - Blame CNN

Tuesday, June 26, 2007

CNN has announced that it has cancelled a interview with Michael Moore regarding his new "must see" movie Sicko. The reason they cancelled the interview is because they landed an interview with Paris Hilton straight out of jail.

Are you kidding me? You mean to tell me that an interview with someone who has done nothing her whole life is more important than a thought provoking interview with someone who is trying to educate the U.S. about health care reform?

CNN should be ashamed of it's self. What this is people is a pyramid shaped dumbing down of America. What that means is the most powerful people of the world who are at the top of the pyramid demand that the next layer below them continue to dumb down the layer below them until it reaches the bottom and that is where 99 percent of us are. Each level profiting by doing so and of course the top level reaping the most profit.

They keep us occupied with powder puff entertainment news and sports instead of talking about the real issues.
