This clip from Charlie Brooker’s “Newswipe” breaks down the absurd sensationalism of news coverage in the wake of mass tragedies like Columbine, Aurora, and Newtown. A forensic psychiatrist lays out some rules for the media to follow when reporting on such incidences … and the media proceeds to break pretty much all of them.

“The University of Tennessee had quite the scandal last week when a member of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity was accused of butt chugging wine. The alleged butt chugger was hospitalized with a reported .4 BAC, and the fraternity was eventually suspended. Today, the entire fraternity held a press conference to deny accusations that the accused butt chugger, Alexander P. Broughton, actually butt chugged any wine.”
This whole thing is amazing.

Mike Rowe talks about the alarming issue that the U.S. is shifting to a services based industry, where almost nobody knows how to build stuff or fix stuff. All of us are going off to get four year college degrees in soft theoretical/services/entertainment industries but don’t know how stuff is made or how stuff works. Sad, really. I agree with him 100%…and acknowledge that I am part of the problem.
