Shallow media focus on breast

The Super Bowl uproar over a breast seems to be the only thing that was worth commenting on. How wrong and self- centered is the media? Not one mention of the most defiling action was mentioned. What was it? It was Kid Rock’s debasing of the flag for personal gain and glory.

Taking a flag and cutting it so that he could wear it as a poncho, to improve his image, if he ever had one. It is a crime. Homeless people do not use the flag as clothing. Why did the NFL, players and fans accept it? I suppose that ignorance and stupidity goes a long way in the sports and entertainment business to make a buck. Janet gets the glory while the guys and girls in Iraq get shot at and killed.

All sporting events have the same problem with players and fans during the singing of the National Anthem, scratching themselves, not removing their hats, talking and generally ignorant of what is required to be respectful. America, learn the rules of respect for your flag and National Anthem.
