|This is why I could never watch TODAY!|
I've never really watched TODAY because I hate all the simpering and snickering on the couch. That's news? But then I don't watch TV much in general and get most of my news off the internet. I read Chronicles which keeps me up-to-date on most of the real news vs entertainment. (Hey, did you hear that Prince Harry is engaged?)
Since I'm mostly interested in Catholic news I prefer to look at OnePeterFive, Canon212, The Wanderer, The National Catholic Register, The Remnant, Catholic Culture, LifeSiteNews, and a number of bloggers who I enjoy and trust.
One of the reasons I don't watch network news is because you can't trust most of the media. Matt Lauer's reprehensible behavior is just the latest demonstration. Look, if the guy is cheating on his wife, exposing himself to staff and propositioning anybody in a skirt, do you really think he is morally above lying and twisting a story if it will get more attention and add to his twinkling star? He's a one-man media side show as are so many of the media celebrities. They don't do real journalism at all. From the information coming out, Lauer obviously thinks he's hot stuff. (He certainly got the megabucks salary which tends to make a person feel important.) He's not! He's a puffed up little phony and a good put-down is the best possible thing that could happen to him for the sake of his soul. When you're down and nobody wants to listen to you that's the most likely time you'll look up and maybe, just maybe begin to examine your life and see yourself for the nothing you really are. The only thing that makes us SOMETHING is the love of God. When we find our worth in money and fame and sin, we really are pathetic nothings. It's only when we acknowledge our nothingness before God and respond to His love that one can begin to blossom as a son or daughter of the King.
So I invite all my readers to pray for Matt Lauer and all the other lascivious predators being exposed in recent days with plenty of evidence (like Al Franken's leering photo while he gropes a sleeping woman's breasts). Humiliation is an invitation to conversion. With God's grace even the worst sinner can repent.
A final thought...I bet most of these predators are pro-abortion. They need abortion to get rid of any "complications" from their despicable actions. Is it any wonder the media is so biased on the abortion issue?
