Yesterday, CNN royally ticked me off. I guess not CNN personally, but the anchors did. I was listening on the radio and I don’t remember their names but it was at about 8:30am MST. It was two women. Maybe three. One interviewed the mayor of Atlanta. And then one of them said:
“No one will accept the blame.”
These women interviewed someone stuck at a Walgreens for 18 hours and they asked:
“Who do you blame?”
They talked about blame all morning. The Walgreens person said:
“I do wish the dept. of transportation worked better but it was also my fault for getting in my car and underestimating the weather.”
I wanted to meet this woman because I liked her. And she wasn’t falling for these women’s blame game.
I’d listened to these three women talk about blame for 15 minutes until I couldn’t take it anymore. What good were they doing by trying to blame people? People were stranded in their cars and all these anchors were trying to do was blame.
I would have much more respect for these women if they’d gotten out of their studio and instead of talking about who was to blame and why no one would accept the blame, they walked the streets handing out food.
It was WEATHER. It sucked. It was horrible. But if you’re angry about it, go help someone instead of trying to blame everyone.
