Willis' News Strike

Hollywood actor BRUCE WILLIS has slammed the media for its poor news coverage, accusing the industry of deliberately ignoring serious news in favour of racy stories. The DIE HARD star, who credits his youthful energy and vigour to a refusal to watch news bulletins, is disgusted with the news reports, claiming they are frivolous and superficial rather than informative. And he says that banning news from his house means he worries far less. Willis insists, "We go for the sensational now in the news. If it's not sensational or tantalising or making fun of someone, it seldom gets into the news. "I don't watch the news anyway. I have it turned off, and I feel so much better for it. That's why I have that youthful glow about me. I don't look worried."

Considering Bruce's politics which is just to the right of Neandrethal I'm not surprised that he wants to avoid the results of the President he supports and the silliness of his action movies. Although I personally like him as a professional actor, perhaps it is better that he avoid politics and news altogether as long as he doesn't pontificate and let us know how ignorant he is. digoweli
