Distracted by Sheen

Posted: March 3, 2011 by mikenic1 in Uncategorized

This week you cannot go anywhere without hearing about Charlie Sheen. Every news network and talk show is talking about Charlie Sheen, from Conan to Katie Couric. If you try to avoid hearing about him on television, the internet is not much better. His interviews, videos, and quotes are everywhere. When you talk to people on the street, it is not much better, the only thing people want to talk about is Charlie Sheen. However crazy, sad, entertaining it may be, is his story the most important new item going on in the world today? Aren’t there other issues in the world that we should all be talking about? In my belief, problems in Libya and Egypt should be the dominant stories not Charlie Sheen. Although I am interested in the Sheen story,I do not think it should dominate the news. Over the next couple of weeks it will be interesting to see what will get more coverage, Charlie Sheen problems or problems that affect the world.
