Political Parrots Bore Me
I can appreciate political opinions to a point, but I find it a total bore when an author consumes the same news that everyone else does, parrots that news, and expresses his opinion. Not surprisingly, about half of the country will share that same opinion formed from the same media we all watch.
Why do I read them? It happens when they craft a decent headline. Then, you get a few paragraphs deep and realize that it’s just parroting some political opinions they were assigned by the favorite commentators. They may have adjusted their rage slight up or down, but the opinions are generic.
