I can't believe I woke and heard these words on the radio this morning:

"It looks like H1-N1 is back."

What? Are you that stupid, you media morons? It never left; the hysteria just died down because you, as dramawhores, didn't seem to care too much about it. Now that two children have, unfortunately, succumbed to Hini in Oshawa, suddenly it's as if it was gone for a while, and now it's back?

You're stupid, media. Honestly. That fact is, the story wasn't "sensational" enough for you to report on a regular basis because no one had, in recent months, died from in locally. Now that someone has, you suddenly give a shit.

Fuck you, assholes. I'm so glad I never pursued a career with you.

Something seems weird about the two dead kids, actually. Police are investigating which makes me think it might be more of a homicide issue.

That just hurts my head.

And it also kind of proves my point that the media doesn't care unless it's sensational. Remember the whole isotopes thing?

What about the isotopes thing? When the nuclear plant was shut down and the production of medical isotopes halted/stopped?

Yeah. There was controversy because on of the ministers, I forget which, said that when there wasn't enough coverage about it, it was because the story wasn't "sexy" enough.
