Times Are Good

We are all living in a country of over 300 million people. Now the major news media outlets are focused on a small town outside of St. Louis called Ferguson. To hear them convey their very coordinated message you would thing the world is coming to an end. I do not think more than 50,000 people are protesting and less than 50,000 protesting out of 300,000,000 people tells me internally that I have to like those numbers.

The major news media (MNM) has about 5 talking heads each. With ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, FOX, and MsNBC considered to be the MNM, it means we have 30 people each day telling us how "the American people" are thinking. So 30 people out of 300,000,000 million are telling you how you feel each day and have been doing this for quite some time.

Consider the numbers above. Don't you think it is time to simply tune them out?
