The media is annoying.

So we all know that the media likes to exaggerate things for dramatic effect right? Well its really getting on my nerves. Like I was looking at CNN, and all these authors were like freaking the fuck out about North Korea. In the US, since we are allied with South Korea, yeah, it makes sense to be worried about these things. But considering how effing poor North Korea is and how South Korea requires most male citizens to serve in the military (except for certain people, like for example, a kpop star named Taecyeon can't serve because his eyesight is exceptionally bad, and I thought of him cuz there's this dude at my school who looks like him but anyway), South Korea could probably fight off North Korea themselves. But here's something no one in North America seemed to notice. North Korea has threatened South Korea how many times since the 90's? About 3. How many times have they actually done anything? 0. And that's just one example. Like I also saw a thing about how a celebrity got into an accident with a 25-ton truck and went into emergency surgery. I read the article, concerned because I thought that he was gonna die or something, when it turned out he went into emergency surgery... for his ankle.

Also even just the media at my school, like the journalism team doesn't get half of what's going on at school (I know because I was on the journalism team last year), and the yearbook staff only really gets to talk to the most popular people of each grade, and while they're not supposed to make our school seem perfect, they do anyway in rather shady ways. They credited my sister with saying something when she wasn't even interviewed by yearbook staff. I'm just so done with the exaggeration, because it ends up making us in North America look stupid when in reality its the media's fault.
