I first want to start out by giving my thoughts and prayers to everyone affected by yesterday’s senseless act and to the family and friends of Tom Petty. Such a horrible way to start off the week.
Now to get to the point.
Yes, I understand the Vegas shooting is a huge deal, biggest mass shooting to date in the United States.
Yes, I understand that violence of any sort is bad and needs to be addressed.
What I don’t understand is why the media has to brainwash people into thinking gun control will solve everything.
Guns are the problem.
Its the people obtaining them that are the problem.
Guns don’t kill people.
People kill people.
But yet the media won’t get that message if gun control is implemented.
If it does, the black market is where guns will be purchased, causing more people who are mentally unstable to get ahold of guns to cause attacks likr Vegas.
Yet, not many people realize that.
To add to my rant of media, yesterday TMZ (the WORST news source out there) decided to say after singer Tom Petty was admitted to the hospital after cardiac arrest, had passed away after being taken off life support.
At first, I never believed it because of 2 things.
- The source
- Others news sites and TV were saying it wasn’t confirmed that he passed
Then everyone started believing it on Facebook, Twitter, and I started thinking no this isn’t real. Someone I grew up listening to, who was my first concert is gone.
Well, among all that chaos, I was hearing, through Twitter, there was an active shooter situation at the University of Southern California.
That turned out to be false, thank god.
A couple hours after the Tom Petty report, people were finally saying he wasn’t gone but taken ofd of life support.
At that point, my brain was struggling to understand what was happening.
Was he or wasn’t he dead?
If he wasn’t, why was the media lying and getting involved?
Was it not bad enough we were all confused by the shooting?
Well, I woke up this morning to the confirmation from Tom Petty’s management he had passes away.
At first I didn’t want to believe it after the mass confusion yesterday, but my parents had said his management confirmed it.
I literally wasted a day of my life in confusion and lies, thanks to the media. They are the biggest crocks on the planet.
Its a day I can’t take back. A day that will be with me forever.
And yet a day that makes me really question, why can’t the media just stay out of stuff and let things happen they way they need to?
Why can’t they understand they are the cause of mass brainwashing and mass confusion?
Or will they keep going until everyone believes them?
Whatever it is, it needs to stop.
And I wish it would.
The world has enough cruelty in it and the media shouldn’t fuel the fire.
Please everyone have a very good day and stay safe!
