THE NEWS

NEWS MEDIA

THIS IS THE NEWS

 “MURDER! RAPE! BLOOD! WAR!

delivered daily to your door!

DEATH and MAYHEM! FILM AT 4:00!

The News will keep you well informed!

 Good news is never fit to print;

Bad News Headlines make a mint!

The Press make sure you’ll get upset

each time you watch your TV set.

 “IT ISN’T SAFE TO WALK THE STREETS

STAY AT HOME BENEATH YOUR SHEETS!”

CRIMINALS LURK ANYWHERE YOU LOOK!”

It must be true…. it was printed in a book!

 “WE NEED MORE GUNS AND THOUGHT POLICE“.

THE WORLD WILL NEVER BE AT PEACE“.

DRUGS AND CRIME ARE EVERYWHERE“.

The Press makes sure that we’re “aware”….

 Shocking love-life exposes!

Who will they prosecute today?

THE PUBLIC HAS THE RIGHT TO TRUTH”.

The Press will judge and execute!

 Is Free Speech an equal right?

Only for those with financial might

to pay the advertising fees.

The Press is told who to appease.

 Lies and rumors, the “news” abounds –

they’ll make it up when there’s none around.

“The truth be damned!  I’m a reporter…

It’s my job to cause disorder”!

 Like l0bsters in a bubbling pot

who claw and pull to reach the top –

free from miserable despair,

The Press is boiling you in fear!

 Every day we all begin

a bright new hopeful day.

Life’s a game we all can win.

It’s lots of fun to play.

 Wake up! Don’ get sucked in!

Reporters wearing pearly grins

tell you that life’s all bad;

The Press are all completely mad!

 Turn off your TV! Enjoy your day.

In spite of what “the experts” say,

there is no need to be afraid.

Live and Love another day!

FACEBOOK FILOSOFER: HOW TO GUIDE FOR AMATEURS

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

Anyone can be a FaceBook Filosofer.  (and most Facebookers are.)  But, if you’re a amateur, and aspire to be a “professional” (like me) here’s all you need: 1) a Facebook account 2) a photo — preferably with a black background for more dramatic textual contrast  3) a photo editing ap 4) type a slogan, quotation or cliche on the picture.  5) Upload your picture.  (shazzam!) Now you’re a professional Facebook Filosofer!  It doesn’t matter how many “Likes” you get.  It’s all about the deep filosfical drama of posting platitudes to impress yourself and your “Friends” with your clever witicizms and deeply spiritual understanding of all things political, social, and sexual.  Who knows, maybe you”ll even hook up with someone along the way who “Likes” you or at least shares your version of reality anonymously over the internet.
