Fake News

Fake News

Soon enough real journalism
will become anachronism.
Cretins overly ambitious
will decide that it’s propitious
to forever go online
quoting “truths” most asinine,
overlooking elemental
wisdom that is fundamental,
adding to the whole tableau
with things they “think” but do not “know,”
and God have mercy on the masses
who vote to reelect these asses.

Prompt words today are anachronism, fundamental, propitious, asinine, mercy and tableau. Image by Charles Deluvio on Unsplash.

    I accidentally looked at a page of news headlines and became INSTANTLY depressed. I can’t even scan the headlines. It’s not just the elephant in the room. It’s a herd of charging tanks in the room. I confronted the news and the news won.

        I think I really have reached “stick head in sand” stage. I just can’t deal with it anymore. It makes me angry, makes me sad, makes me feel like I don’t know where or who I am anymore. It’s just AWFUL.

    Yep. I hate “news” items that headline with the words “might” or “may” — in an infinite universe that’s just about everything. I also hate how we seem to have learned nothing from TFG’s ability to spin the news toward himself as in “I’ll be arrested on Tuesday.” How gullible are people? Oh wait…
