Terrible article

I saw this article and thought it was complete sh**. Idk if it is posted on here or not so here it is.

Remember when U2 was an exciting and relevant band? That was quite a long time ago. This is all evidenced by their latest album, No Line on the Horizon, which made about as much of a dent in the music world as a fly does on a steel wall.
Unfortunately, Bono still thinks he is God and talked to ABC News about the Obama administration. The former superstar says he's been in touch with Obama and is confident the president will deliver on promises made during the campaign, including the singer's favorite issue: funding to fight AIDS in Africa.
Can somebody explain why it is Bono's job to talk to Obama? Although pushing for funding to fight AIDS in Africa is a good thing, it seems that Bono is just doing this as a publicity stunt to revitalize his once hot career. We never elected big-mouthed rock stars to run our country, especially extremely overrated ones.
U2 has had a long run - one that is longer than just about any act in musical history. However, it's time for them to retire. We don't want our peace disturbed with extremely bad, bubble-gum rock music anymore. Now, it's time to listen to The Joshua Tree and remember the band that once thrilled the world.

This is not an article, this is a piece of crap. Every child could write a better piece. I don't think we need a separate thread for every disturbing kind of blurb that is in the media about Bono and U2.

I find them quite funny, personally. Very rarely, when anyone in the popular press attacks NLOTH, do they bother to... uhh... attack the quality of the album, and instead go for its relevance combined with OMG BONO IS A HYPOCRITICAL LIAR ILLUMINATUS!!!

Sue Bergerstein should just go eat some burgers, she had no idea whatsoever she was talking about. I'd like to see her musical playlist, chockablock with Nickelback and P!nk.

Snide remarks like above clearly indicate the writer has an agenda with Bono, and lets their personal opinions cloud the piece, therfore you wont get a balanced atricle. Its not proper journalism

There comes a time when opinions about music are undeniably absurd... eg, an opinion that Radiohead's music can be categorized as heavy metal.

We live in an age where everyone and their mother have access to the internet and can write everything they want about anything they want. This is not even a proper "article". If you look for negative comments on Bono and U2 in the internet, it's very easy to find them, the internet is full of it. The person's personal agenda against Bono and her horribly bad writing style is saying enough. My little nephew can write a better piece.

What really cinches it is that she wants us to listen to JT. Uh, barring a few songs, I say "no thanks". I'm always amazed at how much that album is loved. But to be stuck in 1987 like that is a shame.

PHAIL!

Yep, that's true.
That grain (and maybe more) is found here:
"[Bono] talked to ABC News about the Obama administration. The former superstar says he's been in touch with Obama and is confident the president will deliver on promises made during the campaign, including the singer's favorite issue: funding to fight AIDS in Africa."

That's about the only truth in whole article though...

Hm, the problem is: Many of you do not wanna see the truth – that U2 are a bit lost at the moment, not sure where heading for as credible artists AND successful moneymakers. And Bono is no exception, I am afraid ...
