The Worth Of News...

After how many years of being brought a version of the news, through one medium or another; we (the 'flocks of individuals') have decided to call it quits. What's the point in that which is going on? Everything has already been said, or its been done. There is 'nothing new' under the sun. Vanity of vanities, all is vanity. Those words, by the way, are from an old book called Ecclesiastes, which like the common newspaper, has lost all significance under the weight of postmodern thought.

Postmodernism informs us that there is no universal truth, no right and wrong, just meaningless accidents that stumbled into life as we know it. We should stop pretending we know the important news of the day. After all, the most important news is about you. So if you still want to read important news, write it yourself, no-one can do it for you. After all, isn't news is a subjective term?
