Thoughts on Politics, Race, and Middle Earth

“BOO!!”

I Write What I Like

Observing the latest News Cycle, particularly as presented on the Cable News networks, I’m reminded of a prediction I made during the “OJ Simpson” saga. I said then:

“America will rue the day, that they’ve allowed the Media to get ‘foot loose’ and lazy with the FACTS!”

TODAY, the Media has again fallen back on their tried and true strategy of laziness, cheap tricks, and in a sense …. doing the White House bidding with regard TERRORISM. Each day they bombard the American Public with “This summer al Qaeda plans on attacking the United States” or ” al Qaeda Operatives are now recruiting young people in the United States to spread violence” or “Sources have told CNN that an attack by al Qaeda is imminent in the United States this summer“!

And of course, at the end of their ‘Scare & Fear Mongering’ ~ complete with 6 year old File Tapes of al Qaeda training camps ~ the BEST they can come up with is:

“Homeland Security advises Americans to remain VIGILANT!”

                                               ???

Now, I have my opinion as to ‘why’ the Media feels the need to act so reckless and irresponsibly ( try laziness, un-professionalism, advancing a Political Agenda, appealing to the people’s Emotions rather than their BRAINS); but as a Wise Sage once advised:

A Brave Soul only dies once, while a coward dies a THOUSAND times!”

I KNOW to be TRUE …. that most people Believe whatever they see in ‘print’ or see on the ‘boob tube’. That’s why the so-called “Fourth Estate” has performed so shamelessly over the past 20 years or so. The Media’s shameless disregard for FACTS & Journalistic Ethics &Integrity will forever tarnish ANYTHING they attempt to do far into the future.

Hell: 90% of those Clowns you see on CNN, MSNBC, FOX, and even the Networks ~ are NOT Journalists but Entertainers, baby!

Sensationalist and ‘Rating Whores’ are all these people are, baby! And if by chance the FACTS somehow get into their Coverage ~ well then hell, even a broken clock is right at least twice a day!!

                                       BOO!
