What I find interesting is the amount of news coverage that comes out about the 9/11 terror attacks every single day. I don’t know if it’s because people are dying, or because they are afraid of what will happen if we don’t get out and fight back, but the news constantly tries to make us feel guilty. They want us to feel like there is a plot to take our freedoms away so they can take more of our money.
This is just one example of how it can be. People are just as much a part of the media industry as anyone else. In the past, the media has always held us to a higher standard. In fact, I once read an article in a national paper where they were talking about how it was important to have a “good reason” to be able to keep a job, but there was no point in having a good reason if you were going to let people off the hook.
If the media had a more liberal and open mindset, it might be more accepting of the things that are important in life. So instead of being told that to be a true patriot we had to be in the military, or a true journalist, we were told that to be a true citizen we had to vote Democrat. No one is born a patriot, but they can be shaped by the media to be one.
A lot of people would agree that the media was liberal. Yet it is the media that’s supposed to be able to shape our consciousness to be true to ourselves, to be patriotic, and to love what we believe in. As a result, many people come to the media and the political world with an insecurities about their own patriotism, insecurities that are often manifested in their behavior and attitudes. But the media can shape to our needs exactly what we want it to.
Kermit 9/11 is a great example of this. For years it was the most well-known film about a terrorist attack on 9/11. But it was never as good as it could have been in this regard. Not only was it not as good as it could have been, it was not even as good as it could have been had it not been for the fact that the media had done such a wonderful job of shaping it.
The media did a wonderful job of shaping Kermit 911 because it had the right mix of suspense and drama. And the right mix of suspense and drama in Kermit 911 meant that while it was suspenseful, it was also a bit scary. It was scary because it was so suspenseful, but it wasn’t scary because it was scary.
Kermit 911 was the first in a series of media-shaping novels that have since been released by Harper Collins and are all about the same guy. But, as a novel, it had the wrong mix of suspense and drama. It was suspenseful because the reader got used to the idea that a terrorist plot was being hatched in the real world, but when the terrorist plot happens, the plot twists just turn out to be a bit too much of a surprise.
Well, yes, Kermit 9/11 actually was too suspenseful. It was so suspenseful that it scared the heck out of me! Of course, I’m not the only one who thought that the plot was more suspenseful than it was drama. It seems to have been a bit of a hit with the readers, however, with the first book now being on the New York Times best seller list.
There are several reasons for this, not the least of which is that Kermit was a bit of a comedy hero in his own right, and so we can look at his adventures in a bit more comedic light. Also, as we learn from the trailer (and as we discover in the book), Kermit has friends who can help him solve this plot. In the book, we find out that Kermit has a friend named Kermit the Frog.
Kermit has friends who can help him solve his plot, but there are also two of them in the trailer. To be honest, the trailer does us no favors because it just looks like Kermit is walking around in a green hat with a small purple tail. On the other hand, the book gives us some great details to go with the trailer, so I’m willing to overlook the hat.
