Cake News

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on August 31, 2017

Last year, a Cobb County police officer pulled a lady over for DUI. While talking to her, he made an unfortunate comment. “Remember, we only kill black people. We only kill black people, right?”

WSB-TV heard about the incident, submitted an open records request, and got the dashboard video. The tv station waited for a slow news day to broadcast the story. The usual sensation mongering media outlets have been tut tutting about the story. Tomorrow, it will be something else.

The DUI lady had escaped scorn. She was on an interstate highway, driving badly enough to get pulled over. We do not know how the case turned out. The lady committed a serious crime, one that has fatal consequences for thousands over people a year. And people are more upset because the arresting officer said something stupid.

There is a lot of talk lately about fake news. This story is apparently real. However, does it really need to get the attention it is receiving? Maybe, instead of fake news, this is cake news.

Cake is very popular. People love the taste. In moderate servings, are not harmed by eating it. However, cake does not have much nutritional value. You cannot live on a diet of cake. If you eat too much, it can do great harm to your health.

The story of the poorly spoken cop is a ratings pleaser for channel two. People are getting the dose of outrage for the day. It is grand entertainment, until the next reason to be angry comes along. Hearing stories like this do not make Georgia a better place to live. Instead, consuming this cake news will rot your teeth, and make you fat. Pictures today are from The Library of Congress. They were taken in 1939 by Dorothea Lange. The location was the Yakima Valley, in Washington state.
