The 2011 NASCAR season was likely the most exciting seasons in recent years with a incredible 3 point division between points leader and second place. They were only 3 points separating a possible NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion and second place creating a last race for the history books. My four uncles and five cousins were attending the last race at Homestead-Miami as they have done for over 10 years there. They received their regular exclusive pit passes which allowed them access to the actual pit areas where drivers are, dinning at exclusive infield restaurant, and front row seats to pre-race activities. The cost for a single-person package is over $300 dollars. The First Lady and Mrs. Biden decided to make an appearance at the race, but none of the fans were planning out what would occur next. Over 30,000 fans have the opportunity to go into the infield general area with their general ticket( $150). That day merely 5,000 fans were lucky to even make it to the general area because of the various security checkpoints and newly restricted areas. My families $300 dollar per ticket package was about to become entirely wasted. They waited for over an hour to get into the exclusive area, but the security checkpoints backed the lines up so they had no choice but to return to general seating. This frustration of money literally wasted was overpowering for many fans. When the First Lady and Mrs. Biden, a small majority of the crowd booed as my family noted. Nobody around them did, but for about 10-15 seconds they could hear booing. They did not spend any more time then 15 seconds thinking about it. I myself was watching the race live and also spent no more then 15 seconds thinking about the booing. It only was replayed for me when certain news organizations started creating what I call “Drama Filled Report” about a 15 second booing incident that could barely be heard. It took MSNBC, CNN, and NBC not long to report the booing. CNN website writers and bloggers ate it up like pie. The possibility of it being a more “conservative sport”, white demographics typically, and just being NASCAR made them jump onto this story. CNN White House Reporter Alexander Mooney reported an article today acknowledging the blatant disrespect. This report accompanied by dozens more  really shows were media lies wit viewers. They seemingly glorify Jersey Shore and Occupy while singling out a sport working incredibly hard for more fans. The ONLY TIME certain news groups cover NASCAR is over fatalities and ridicules drama filled reports like this. They certainly don’t write dozens of articles demonizing the Occupy movement, but instead glorify it. They don’t look at how most cable shows are blantly trash filled with reality stars looking for quick fame. They dont report daily on how the Internet has no moral limitations on how people talk. The moral code in America fell off the bandwagon 20 years ago. Come On America!
