newscast fills you with topics that involve some person, group, or thing complaining about some other person, group, or thing. Lawyers, various "rights" groups, and the government (at least in the US) all thrive on
But a true Piss & Moan is much smaller than a complaint or grievance. It's something that sits back in your brain waiting for the chance that someone will listen to it, then it goes back into hybernation. It's really of no use at all unless it's shared with someone.
