Now I admit I'm probably the most pro-American person in my group, but I am still very disgusted. IT'S JUST A BLOODY POWER CUT! It is NOT headline news. It is not worthy of the cover of Time. It is not something that the whole world should watch while jumping up and down in hysterics. It's just a power cut. Get over it.
This wouldn't irk me as much if the same coverage were to be given if it were to happen anywhere else in the world, but we all know that it's only this big because it happened in freaking America. Just because something happens in America, it's suddenly worldwide news. So what that Liberia is going down the toilet? So what that millions of people in Africa are starving? So what that Hambali has been arrested? So what that there's a lot more important news out there? There was a power cut in the USA so we must all gasp and shake in fear and look on in shock while wondering how such a horrendous catastrophe could occur!
I feel sick.
