In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Ripped from the Headlines!.”
In today’s prompt we are supposed to write a post inspired by something in the headlines.
I am in the grocery store aisle. Almost every magazine has a Kardashian inspired story, some have a Kardashian on the cover. Now for me, anything Kardashian related is an instant turnoff….but there must be other Americans who feel differently, otherwise we wouldn’t keep seeing their mugs everywhere. I go to the CNN website…more news on the Khloe and Lamar situation…..why is Khloe’s every move breaking news? Wasn’t she going out with James Harden….see I know more than I want to about her, you can’t escape it. If it isn’t the Kardashians themselves, it is their long line of associated acts…Bruce/Caitlyn, Kanye etc., etc. The Kardashian empire could potentially stop me from consuming any sort of media. I usually watch the Today show in the morning. I believe that NBC is owned by the same company as the channel that airs the Kardashian shows. So even Matt Lauer has to help pimp the Kardashian brand…once Kris had a cooking segment…give me a break.
Now this next topic should theoretically be more newsworthy but I am tiring of it as well. It is a whole year until presidential elections in the US. I’m getting so sick about hearing about the antics of Donald Trump. I believe the media coverage of his antics takes away from in-depth coverage of the other candidates.
