    You are warned, RANT COMING!
    I am so ****ING sick of internet news. Below I have copied/pasted the first 14 headlines that show up on Yahoo. There is NOTHING positive about any of this shit they post and every single headline is made to shock/bitch/complain/?? about something just to get people to click on it and I'm getting tired of it. It's the same shit on other search engines too so Yahoo isn't the only one to blame. Normally I go to the Science section where it's less controversial stories but even that gets old. I wish I can do something about this but I know I can't..

    Another headline grabber I ****ing hate goes something like this:
    "Many people are outraged that "insert rich/famous person here" said "xxxx" about "so-n-so..."

    First of all who gives a **** what someone else is doing? I would bet that nobody said any such thing and the headlines are completely made up just to get people to click on the article then post their opinions. I'm sick of reading these types of headlines...aarrg....

    The ONLY reason these headlines exist are because we humans are so friggen STUPID that sh!!T like this gets our attention and we just HAVE to click on it which makes companies money.. WHY???!!!!

    I suggest watching Fox News then.
    And if you wanna get pissed off, just flip over to MSNBC of CNN for a few short minutes. That'll do it.

    As a guy that came of age as technology was changing into what we know today, I find myself distancing away from all this crap. Its 100% obvious that despite being the greatest tool for humanity to share relevant and pertinent information to advance us as a species... and porn... its devolved into tabloid fodder, sensationalism, op-ed pieces parading as "news" and a general mis-information campaign promoting a one sided agenda.

    I miss the days of surfing a fairly neutral internet finding new and dirtier porn, playing SJW free Battlefield and watching Cobra's and Supra's battle it out in the newly discovered realm of Mexico.

    Same here. Literally.

    The Internet is the best and worst thing to ever happen to humanity.

    I love/hate my smartphone with a ****ing passion as well.

    I want to make fun of you for losing your shit on the forum but I agree, and so do a lot of people. Modern society is toxic as **** and it's hard to escape. The bottom line is those in control of our media are greedy and they've realized ripping people/society apart makes them money. The world is greedy and self centered and you're not going to escape it any time soon.

    At the moment at least they are less focused on negativity because they aren't about bashing Republicans and Trump 24/7. If 93% of the MSM reporting is negative about Trump, how much of that was due to FNC? Did they even count them in the study?

    Fox does a far greater job of trying to spread better news and keep things positive. With your comment Im guessing you dont spend that much time watching it anyways due to you preconceived notions.

    Big companies need to be subject to antitrust and monopoly laws.

    You get what we have now if you don’t.

    Communists and central planners have basically infected our capitalist system with cancers and tumors.

    Gold standard, antitrust, and much less welfare.

    When big tech companies are using nazi and Soviet esc mind control elements from addictive mapping to wave reducing and memory corrupting algorithms to make their products “appealing” you know it’s bad. Heck, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates didn’t let their kids use tech freely, but they happily let their customers do so with their children.

    You're doing it wrong...Yahoo should have been booted from your browser way back in the Myspace days.

    Here's my newsfeed from Google (hate them all you want, but I like their services):

    Being from the era of fair reporting MSM news sucks. Days of Huntley/Brinkley are loooong gone. That is why I watch very little news. I watch the local news and try to watch national news. Internet stuff I ignore other then Fox, OAN, or Newsmax. Yeah I am conservative so I will leave the commie channels to the liberal nutswingers.
