In the News...

I’ve been trying to distract myself from a task that I have no interest in (obviously it’s not related to writing), so naturally I’ve turned to the Internet for inspiration/therapy/excuses. Sadly, that means I’ve been reading a myriad of articles on supposed news sites that, for the most part, are absolutely meaningless, stupid, or unbelievably inane. I can’t believe some of the articles I read or the teaser headlines (Fecal Matter and You--Swimming Pool Survival Tips), but I read them anyway just to see how far out these journalistic outlets have gone on reporting some of their “news.”

Don’t get me wrong. Sometimes I’ll find an amazingly insightful article on something that’s actually newsworthy; however, most of what I’ve read lately has led me to believe that’s the exception, not the standard. So, for today’s post, in the spirit of Internet journalism, I’ve come up with a list of article suggestions for these news outlets in case they run out of articles on the royal birth. They’re below.
