THE AGE OF MEDIA-LITE

I DEDICATE THIS SPACE TO POINTING OUT THE LAME MEDIA COVERAGE OF THE DISHONESTIES IN OUR POLITICAL WORLD FROM THE REDWOOD FORESTS TO THE GULF STREAM WATERS. THE BIG STUFF IS OFTEN, THOUGH NOT ALWAYS, COVERED BY THE MEDIA. HECK, THE MEDIA EVEN DECIDES JUST WHAT THE 'BIG' STUFF IS. THE MEDIA IS, SLURP SLURP , BUSY COVERING THE CRUDE, THE LEWD, THE RUDE, AND WHEN A PRESIDENT GOT BLEWED. ( YES, IT'S TORTURED, BUT IT RHYMES ).
I FOCUS ON THE CRUMBS. NO, NOT THE POLITICIANS OR THE REPORTERS, ALTHOUGH THERE IS A PLETHORA OF CRUMBS IN BOTH OF THOSE CAMPS. BY CRUMBS, I MEAN THE NEGLECTED ISSUES; THE ONES FOUND ON THE SHEET AFTER EATING POLITICS IN BED . SOME OF WHICH ARE SNACK SIZE. OTHERS ARE SO BIG WE CAN'T SEE 'EM. BIG LIES ARE JUST SO MUCH MORE CONVINCING THEN WEE ONES.
WHEN I READ OR VIEW OUR MEDIA I FIND MYSELF ASKING QUESTIONS THAT THEY DON'T SEEM TO GET TO. YOU'VE DONE IT TOO. YOU'VE WONDERED, "WHY DON'T THEY ASK...".
HOW DO WE KNOW ANYTHING REALLY. UNLESS WE EXPERIENCE SOMETHING FIRST HAND, WE RELY ON OTHERS, AKA THE MEDIA, TO TELL US THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH, AND NO WEAPONS OF HAMBURGER HELPER. THIS IS NOT ALWAYS EASY SINCE MANY POLITICIANS ARE SMART ENOUGH TO CONTORT THEIR LANGUAGE AND BEHAVIOR BEYOND THE SOCIAL MATH OF COMMON UNDERSTANDING. HUH? SEE, I CAN DO IT TOO.
SINCE THE REPUBLICANS ARE IN HYPER-POWER, AND GULPING DOWN POLITICAL STEROIDS, I'LL BE TARGETING THEM MOSTLY. THEY ARE BECOMING ALARMINGLY PROFICIENT AT SLIGHT OF HAND. ACTUALLY, THEIR LIES AND DISTORTIONS ARE WAY BEYOND SLIGHT REALLY. THEY SPORT BLACK BELTS. WAY MORE OCTANE THAN DEMOCRAT'S MINI-ME- LIES. AND, NO SMALL MATTER, THEY HAVE GOD ON THEIR BENCH. THE ALPHA ALPHA. THE DUDE WITH THE 'TUDE.
THUS, WITH NEO-CONS YANKING THE JOYSTICK, DEMORATS POOPING IN THEIR DEPENDALOONS, AND THE MEDIA HAVING A BAD CASE OF THE YELLOW FEVER BLUES , WE HAVE THE IMPERFECT STORM. A COUNTRY IN TROUBLE.

Media-lite is right but it is the right media for today's world. I don't blame politicians or the media, I blame people. We have settled for bland tomatoes and even blander ideas. Why not worry about Paris Hilton because it is easier than worrying about what the powerful are getting up to in their meetings at the Hilton. The media are just empty prophets for mediocre times.

YES MR. BLIX, HOW CAN ANYONE DISPUTE WHAT YOU SAY.
TO ME HOWEVER, IT'S A CHICKEN/EGG QUANDRY. IS THE MEDIA MERELY ADJUSTING TO A BRAIN DEAD PEOPLES, OR HAS THE MEDIA DUMBED US DOWN BY THEIR OWN SLUMPING STANDARDS. WE ARE ALL ACCOUNTABLE FOR OURSELVES, AFTER ALL. HOWEVER, OUR REALITY IS FORMED IN LARGE PART FROM THE PIECES THAT THE MEDIA GIVES US.
EXAMPLE: ERASE ALL 'KNOWLEDGE' OF IRAQ FROM YOUR MEMORY BANK THAT'S BEEN PROVIDED BY THE MEDIA...AND YOU MAY FIND NOT MUCH LEFT OVER.
