Ruse

Ruse

Rhymes with

News

Coincidence

I think not

Depending on

Which you

Listen to or watch

You will

Walk, run, or stumble

Away

Justified

Terrified

Or

Mortified

Certainly not

Satisfied

Rather

Mystified

Or

Stupified

Finding truth

Rarified

Scared to leave

The house

Left

Petrified

 

Hard to fathom the different outlets are covering the same topic or the same president.

One glorifies the promise as if it may still happen, health care, walls, taxes. Scapegoating anybody but the promiser, why nothing is happening.

Another reports, that the same nothing is not happening with spin from a different direction, still concluding that nothing is happening.

If you are open minded to watch or listen, to both or all, you realize that the same corporations / advertiser’s fund both, serving the (soul)less purpose of consumption.

Revealing why your attention is rapt with eyes glued open, like your open wallet.

A tagline stating the broadcast is fair and balanced, means most likely it’s not. Kind of like when 45 says “believe me”, the proof is you can’t.

There are no sides in objectivity. Opining what may happen or not, abdicates away the responsibility of the viewer to make an informed decision based on facts.

Instead of emotions and accepting the judgement of the most talented talking heads, doing their job to keep you staying in tune, while being out of touch.
