Real news

I don't know how much sicker I can get of polls, but I'm getting pretty close to the limit:

From their relationships to their jobs to their money — even from they time they first roll out of bed — young white Americans are happier with life than their minority counterparts.

According to an extensive survey of 1,280 people ages 13-24 by The Associated Press and MTV, 72 percent of whites say they are happy with life in general, compared with 51 percent of Hispanics and 56 percent of blacks.

Young people of the dominant group are happier than young people not of the dominant group. What a shock. You could probably do a poll showing that atheist employees of the Vatican feel out of place or that conservative students are the unhappiest in college, but there would really be no point. Somebody should add up all the money news organizations spend on polls and calculate how many reporters capable of relaying real news that would pay for.
