I was just watching the NBC Nightly News and they had a segment on how to keep babies from getting SIDS and while the voice-over is telling us that babies should sleep in their parents room until they are a year old (the video shows a baby in a crib in it’s own room), to put babies on their backs, (video shows a mom putting the baby on it’s SIDE), and to put them on hard surfaces and to not use blankets or have toys in cribs (and both videos show mom’s putting blankets on infants and there were toys in the crib along with the baby).

Oh my goodness….my brain is ready to explode….this is not the first time I have seen these kinds of  things happen on the news.  Is it me…Have I died and gone to some weird 5th dimension where black is white and white is black…up is down and down is up….fat is in and thin is out (okay, that is just not gonna happen but it’s my 5th dimension and I can always hope…)

Why would you put the exact opposite of what you are saying up on the screen?  I didn’t see it as “Warning: This is what you should NOT do”.  It was more like no one bothered to edit the segment.  Crap like this is why I would never trust anything I see on the news…no matter which channel I was watching!


Your Queen, who is quickly losing her patience with news media stupidity


About thelumberjackandthegypsy

The lumberjack is my husband and he owns Arrowhead Wood Products; Arrowhead Toboggan and Snowshoe; and Lake Superior Furniture Co. and is the exclusive manufacturer of wood shutters for Summit Hill Shutter Co. The gypsy is me, and I have a passion for teaching people to tap into their creative side, even when they think they don't have one! I did not grow up creative or artsy and I was in my thirties before I started sewing and creating things. I am a rug hooker; artisan teddy bear maker; painter (from pictures to large pieces of furniture!); knitter; doll maker; needle-felter, repurposer; sewer; decorator; blogger; glamper; reader; vintage jewelry maker; junker; and now a shop owner. But the lumberjack and I feel our greatest gifts in this world are our four grandkids and our daughter and her husband and our relationship with Jesus Christ. We have been married for more than 33 years and most of that time we have lived out in the country on a hobby farm where we have raised chickens, turkeys, ducks, goats, pigs and beef cattle. We also homeschooled our only child for her entire school years. We lived out our dream of being like the The Little House on the Prairie and they were great times. I also have a personal blog: rantingsofamadqueen.wordpress.com where I tell stories of what life on the farm has been like and other things that pop up in my very weird mind. I prefer "quirky or eccentric" instead of weird (sounds more fascinating and less creepy)!
