People need to stop letting the media scare them so much

It's all just a ratings game for the media. Scarier headlines=more clicks=more revenue. NOTHING is actually gonna happen with NK. We've been down this road before and it's basically just a stupid game of chicken where nothing ever happens in the end. Ultimately it's all just a big distraction, and Trump loves it because it keeps away the speculation about Russian involvement in the election.

Nothing is gonna happen, nothing ever happens, and we're not gonna have a nuclear war. Stop letting the fear mongering media distract you from real issues.

1. Let's hope so.

But a nuclear-armed North Korea firing missiles in the general direction of Japan while a U.S. carrier group conducts exercises off-shore, and while hundreds of thousands of U.S., North and South Korean soldiers with their tanks, guns, missiles, and artillery face each other across the DMZ is a real thing.

The media's reporting on the situation might not be too great, but the situation is real and isn't going away.

2. Emotional string-pulling reporting is the order of the day.
