Why do we do it? Time after Time we find that the news goes to find that the lead story is if it ‘bleeds it leads’. Now we find the information is everywhere. The simple fact it is: people while they claim to not like the crime it is almost like a drug to us.

To prove my point I will show you things from the last week to the last month as well as ancient times. I will also show the links of where I get the information.

Some of the most recent headlines in the news have been terror attacks, mass killings and the loss of life. If you go to MSNBC the site is setup to where you can click on different things: Latest: Decision 2016/ @ NBC News France/ Hillary Clinton/ Election confessions/ Donald Trump/ Gun Violence/ 20 Years of MSNBC (http://www.msnbc.com/). If you notice there is two things of violence on the main topics that you can look at.

While there is a lot going on in the world of politics there is also attacks going on there. Think about it for a few moments, The Republicans go after Hillary Clinton for her emails or Benghazi. The Democrats go after Donald Trump about the fact that he keeps changing his story on what he would do about things like immigration.

There are three major channel groups that are out there that most people get their news from. MSNBC (http://www.msnbc.com/ ), Fox News (www.foxnews.com/ ) and CNN (http://www.cnn.com/ ). MSNBC seems to tell a lot of the Democratic information, Fox News does mostly Republican and CNN is both.

We need to understand that if we want to truly understand the way things go, we may often need to go outside the US news to get different points of view.

Why don’t the news cover things that mean things to others such as the fact that people are still not making it. This isn’t a ‘Democratic’ or ‘Republican’ point of view, this is a common sense point of view. How many people make $14 an hour and can afford to have life insurance? How many have medical outside their work? How many have only one family income? Not anymore.
