Media Retardedness

So the news is buzzing that a pedestrian was killed by a self-driving car. Oh noez! It's the death of an industry that hasn't even happened yet! Did anybody ask the simple question, "How many people are hit and killed by cars (non self-driving) on a daily basis?" Oh hell no! Don't try to lessen my outrage with facts!

And this may sound strange, but I'm actually agreeing with Trump on North Korea. Oh noez! We have to do this and this and this before we can ever DISCUSS having a meeting! Oh, you mean do exactly what we have been doing for the past 40 years with absolutely no results? Yes, I cringe every time the orange beast opens his mouth, but maybe there is something there. From what I have read, however, all any world leader has to do is read "Art of the Deal" and they have the playbook from which they can manipulate him.
