I was sad to hear about the death of Prince. Today, we live in a world where there are bodies buried under rubble in Ecuador. There are refugees fleeing violence in Syria. The Iraqi army is prepared a push to regain territory from the Islamic State in Iraq, with the help of our Special Forces.
Watching TV news, none of this is being covered. It is flowers laid in MInnesota, musicians being interviewed about Prince, and speculation about his death and the need to discuss that.
Daily, we lose good people trying to save others around the world. Our media should focus on issues that relate to these people and the work they are doing.
Our perspective has gone into a dark and shallow place. This man is hardly resting in peace with the media intruding on his friends and home in search of what they believe is worthy of camera time. My revulsion for the prying and simpering exploitation of this event is enormous.
Never miss a local story.
It is time for our media to recognize their priorities are insulting to those who follow world events and who believe Prince has, in death, a right to the same privacy he cherished in life.
