This morning I watching parts of the Early Show on CBS and they reported a study that said having a second job can cause people to become stressed and exhausted. Was this study even necessary? Isn't this dumb to even report? Its not that hard to figure out.

Haha..I would think that having a second job would stress anybody out and make them exhausted, they'd never get any rest working non-stop, after awhile it would catch up to you. I guess they couldn't find anything better to do a report on.

News are written so the writer will have money. So now news, no money. This is the reason why when they run out of good news they report just about anything even those not worthy to be published or aired.

It does sound like a pretty stupid thing to do a study on. I don't think it was necessary.

no, it wasn't necessary at all. maybe it was one of their days off where their still working but they just run dumb stories because they don't feel like putting in the effort to find a descent story.

well these days anybody can sue anybody for no reason or almost no reason so they got to put dumb warnings on products to avoid getting sued. you probably already knew that though. i can still understand putting that warning on the hair dryer since a kid might get in the bath tub while the product is plugged in when irresponsible parents might not be watching them. they then might turn around and sue the company for not putting the warning on just because they think they have a chance to win the case even though its their fault.

I call it a slow news day, that and yes, they really do think that we are stupid. The news attempts to get away with so much garbage that it's pathetic. They think that we cannot think for ourselves, so the start these ridiculous surveys and reports in order to get our attention, but truth be told, we know it's all bunk! I watched the news a lot yesterday. I was watching CNN, NBC, and ABC, and they can be just as bad. Sometimes they have something worth watching on television, but then they begin repeating themselves, or they just run out of things to talk about, so they start making up things. I kind of wish that the news were limited, I know that it's limited in Canada.

i say most of the time the 30 minute news at 6:30pm eastern time zone where i live is enough as it just reports the main news. also i've watched pbs news at times and they seem to be unbiased and not as influenced from corporate sources since they get alot of their donations from anyone who wants to contribute.

That does seem dumb. Are our tax dollars paying for this? It's something the government would do.
