Somebody pinch me!

I still have a hard time figuring out why the birth of a baby monkey (or panda or bear or tiger or (insert name of animal here) is deemed to be a newsworthy event.

I know they are cute and everything but have we been numbed so much to everything else that journalists flock to cover non-events like that?

Seriously, I feel that the birth of a baby human is far more important and may produce much more newsworthy results! Think of the birth of Mandela or Churchill or Georges Orwell, where were the journalists then?

Of course, it is impossible to look at a human baby and know that she/he will be the next Darwin, the next Celine Dion or even the next Hitler! I guess that for humans, it is imperative to achieve something (wonderful or horrific) to be deemed newsworthy.

Since an animal will never achieves anything of importance in our world but at the same time will never become a murderous tyrant, a deprived bank executive or a sexual abuser, I can only assume that the birth of an animal becomes "the safe play" for journalists. After all, its cuteness is not open to controversies.

So this is our world: Reporting on things that are sure to gain universal approval! Despite hundred of important event that take place everyday throughout the world, here we are going stupid watching baby animals and posting insipid comments!

When it comes to animals, being cute is some kind of weapon of mass seduction!

Ya, i admit that it is SUPER cute and all. But i think it should be with his/her mother and not being bothered by a bunch of curious men and taken away from his/her habitat.

#3 you are one sad and cynical person... :| and maybe a little ignorant too...

Leaf monkeys are endangered by the way so a healthy baby might be more "newsworthy" than another of our 6-7 billions race...

Really sad to see you being voted UP by other sad and cynical persons...

I'll just conclude on that: :(|) ::(|) :(|) ::(|) :(|)

#3 If u look @ the big picture we are all insignificant.. And we are responsible for the extinction of a lot of animals, So its a good thing to celebrate the birth of one!

We are the ones destroying this planet, and u call uss more important?..

to all my detractors: You have not understood anything that I am talking about! I meant to highlight the stupidity of journalists who provide us with cute animal stories perpetrating the most insidious lies. Lies like "only humans can help endangered species" which is WRONG!

So here is what was written between the lines: I am against the fact that journalists flock to cover news like the birth of a baby animal. Why? Because we live in a world where many of them are endangered because of our own stupidity and that the only way to give these furry critters a chance is BY NOT INTERFERING IN THEIR LIVES!

As long as we will have people who want to "connect on an emotional level" with animals, we will also have people who will enslave animals to provide us "animal junkies" with our "fix". Don't you understand that to really love an animal is to have the common sense to stay away from it?

Our "love" for animals might just be the reason why they are going extinct! Thousands of dolphins get captured each season in Taiji, Japan, only to provide Marineland and other parks with SHOW ANIMALS! Those who don't make the cut end up on dinner plates! All of this so you can bring your kid to the Marine park so he can see "Flipper" run after a ball or get kissed by a killer whale!
This is insane! Most of those captured dolphins suffer from stress related illness and die a premature death. This is not loving, this is slavery!

Loving animals means staying away from them. All that is achieved by those journalists is to convince all of us that animals are here to be petted and be seen through the bars of a cage!

This is why I advocate less interaction between humans and animals and I request that journalists stop entertaining the illusion that animals need us. They DON'T !!!

#12 you have made some good points there but you are overseeing the fact that this baby monkey was born in captivity. Now I am not saying that it Zoo`s are are a good thing but some animals end up there because they are saved: between death or captivity wich one do you think it`s best for them?
We cannot undo the demage we`ve done to their natural habbitat but at least we can try to stop doing more or provide them with perhaps nature reserves where we can protect them better because if animal lovers won`t fight for them the end will be tragic. Since we cannot at this point stop the human - wild animals intteraction let`s make it a positive one. The purpose of the media covering such a story was to inform and increase public awareness.
Ouh and yes, some animals do need us - but that it`s just our own fault.
I believe we are all in the same boat here.

It may seem cute but monkey's can be #@$%'s.
One of my teachers was telling us he was hunting wild boar's in the jungle and the monkeys would constantly be trying to steal whatever was easy to grab (sunglasses, hats, etc) on top of throwing feces at them.

He then went on to tell us how they got fed up, killed a monkey and wrapped monkey entrails / body parts around their necks and the monkey's ceased to bother them anymore

Christ #12 take a chill pill, you are going to get thumbs down just for the 'wall of text'. This probably isnt the best venue to vent your frustrations with the popular media.
