OK, I will try to post and see what kind of backlash I get:) I saw this article and it made me laugh (I am not sure why, it isn't a laughing matter at all).
Levi Johnston's mom arrested on drug charges
Johnston is the father of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's future grandson
(That was a really roundabout headline to say that the mom of Bristol Palin's boyfriend was arrested)
Now, this goes back to the Moms question about coverage: why on earth is THIS being reported, and not the church bombing? Granted, it will not make national nightly news I am sure, but it was on MSNBC.COM on the front page.
Anyway, I don't want to get into a battle of liberal media- we've hashed that to death. BUT, my husband and I were talking about why the church might not want the vandalism and violence taking place on the news. We thought that, perhaps, by putting them on the news it gives them power. Like the Columbine shooters- they became infamous for a heinous act, and now others copy what they did because they also want to be on the news- and, hey, if you are going to commit suicide anyway, why not be famous all over the country? So, we thought maybe it is good that the church bombings (Governor Palin's church- I don't think any of ours have been targeted) and such are not being broadcast, because that would then give power to the movement, not the church. Does that make sense?
Anyway, I am curious to see what others think.
