Here in France, for the first time in History, the President has divorced and gotten married with a beautifull women from show busyness. While the fact certainly deserve some interest, historically-wise, it's very annoying to see the press trying to create a fuss about it, as they do with every other insignificant things...
You open your newspaper wondering what happens in the world, and see as the n° one fact, that an official got married in a controversial way from the conservatist point of view... Wow! That's marvellous, so there were no wars, nobody killed/injured, no political meeting of international importance, no diseases, no nobel prize, nobody drinking the tea with Poutine, no tensions in the world, etc?
Oh, yes, all this happened... But it's on page three, behind VIP's private life first, and football result then.
I find it's normal for a 12 years old girl to give importance to the life of rockstars, famous people etc. I find it's normal for 12 years old boys to place football ahead of the rest of the world.But grown-up people really should behave in a more mature manner!
I'm getting tired of this girly 12 year old view the media choose to impose us as "the modern" point of view. It's not modern!
It's just naive... [/rant]
