Television shows winning Emmy awards are much more important than real issues facing our nation. Charlie Sheen showing up on the Emmy stage is much more important than the problems with our economy, problems with our health care system, and any ‘real’ problem facing our nation today.
That’s the impression we get when media outlets like CNN want to let us know “Breaking News” about some show winning the Emmy for ‘Best Comedy Show.’ We’re truly surprised that they actually had President Obama’s $3 trillion budget cut proposal up there for us to see with such important news about the Emmy awards. This is the exact reason why we write the articles we do. We are here to point out discrepancies with the media that truly show they aren’t there to look out for the American people anymore. They are there for one reason and one reason alone; to make a profit.
The American media today is nothing more than a profit center. Everything they do is based on who they can get to sponsor their station, on what gets them more viewers. The truth is often times irrelevant or twisted to be more entertaining rather than informing. It’s why we have every major cable news network running around trying to do the Republican debates a little bit different than the other. It’s all about who can get the most views, who can get the more sponsors, and ultimately who can bring in the big dollars so their share holders can be happy.

These factors include things such as smoking, drinking, obesity, and a lack of child bearing before the age of 30. The biggest factor is a lack of screenings to help with early detection.
The LGBT community is often times ostracized in many ways, and this is no different than when it comes to the health care industry. Despite the oath of doctors and nurses, there is still a very large discrimination factor involved when it comes to patient care. Many let their own beliefs and politics get in the way when it comes to treating LGBT patients and understanding their needs. This creates a situation in which many in the LGBT community don’t even want to bother with seeking health care services even though; just like everyone else, they should. It’s a unhealthy and sometimes fatal situation, but not just doctors and care providers are to blame.
