Never underestimate the power of the media to escalate sensationalistic news to absurd heights.
Or the internet to take it even higher.
You said it Dave! From Balloon Boy to Swine Flu, all the news is sensational! Now where is my copy of the Weekly World News? I need some accurate info….
Parenting……. They’re doing it WRONG!
Amen amen amen. I know this makes me a bitch but I turned OFF my Twitter application as soon as this all started happening.
Thankfully, I didn’t hear anything about this story until much later in the day when it had all been sorted out.
Kid was in a box in the attic? Yeah, that sounds about right.
I agree. I am ashamed to admit I once earned a living from this kind of garbage. But I’m not sure which is worse the people that serve this crap up or the people that eat it one spoonful after another. If only everyone had enough sense to turn this junk off may be, just may be we would see the end of it.
Oh, you are SO right. Stupidity abounds…
Bizarre story, eh? I’m just glad that the kid turned out to be okay. BTW, thanks for the much-need laugh (American justice). 😉
The problem is the poor kid will forever be known by two names: Falcon (his given name) and Balloon Boy. The horror!
