Daily Prompt: Filter

Filter

The last few days I’ve be overwhelm with the amount of news coverage of the Presidential inauguration,the nasty women protest, people expressing their opinion on why they hate or love Trump on social media.  It seems that no matter what filters you try to put up to block the cycle of news it just not enough.  You would think maybe if I switch to sports there would be no talk of politics or issues related to it, but then I see an article about San Antonio Spurs Coach Grep Popovich giving his opinion about Trump.  It like, wait a second here, I thought this was the sport section.
With the internet at our finger tips, have we lost our option to filter out things we don’t want to hear and see?  Has the news media decided to drop their filters on what important news to report to the American people and people around the world? Am not talking about censorship, am talking about using common sense to decide if a something is news worthy. Am talking about what are the issues that are important. Reporting and comparing crowd sizes is not new worthy.  It seem that the media is the tip of the spear for feeding a lot a of hate and keeps on feeding it instead of changing the tone.  The media has the power to filter themselves, but would refuse to do so because at the end, ratings and their political agenda is the most important thing.
