Casey Anthony: Not Guilty, But The Media Is
(BOB TUSKIN) According to the National Center For Missing & Exploited Children, “800,000 children younger than 18 are missing each year, or an average of 2,000 children reported missing each day.” Yet we see the media obsess with one or two poster children, ie Natalie Holloway, JonBenét Ramsey, and Casey Anthony. Many have caught on to the most recent distraction, the Casey Anthony trial and ensuing media spectacle.
As with many of the other media fluff, it’s not necessarily distracting from a certain issue, its purpose is a bit more complex. It follows a trend of programming and playing on emotions, namely fear. Everyone reading this with the exception of the “pedophile powers that shouldn’t be”, has an emotional reaction to the Casey Anthony story. The energy vampires understand this and they allow for the trauma to fester in peoples mind.
A story like this plants a seed, allowing for your mind to fantasize about a select issue that is more like “reality” TV than news. The report by CBS makes plain that Casey Anthony, “Cried, dabbed her eyes with a tissue, and looked away as pictures of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee’s skull were displayed in the courtroom Thursday morning.”
This kind of reporting is not news? It’s an exploitation of your emotions in that it is not unlike many other families tragedy, but is this worthy of the amount of energy and resources spent on it? What about the other hundreds of thousands of Victims of these crimes – where is their story?
