Here is the News

We take your faces to paper our walls.

We take your stories to hang in our halls.

We are the presenters, presenting the truth.

Believe us or not, it's up to you.

But most do.

 

We take your thoughts and turn them around.

We tell you which investments are sound.

We are the impartial in-telly-gents.

Believe us or not, it's up to you.

But most do.

 

Press the button, turn up the sound.

The soothing voice is bound to drown

The savage suffering, all non new-speak.

Targets will be met and death will retreat.

We're sure. Aren't you?

 

We present the facts, do our best to entertain.

Give a balanced picture for the balanced brain.

No hidden agenda; no party line.

Oh dear! Sorry folks!

It seems we've run out of time.

Thanks Jason and Dorothy.
Aunty? Maybe even Big Brother. ?
A question that always interests me is, Who decides what the 'the news' is?

Watch with mother for adults? (or is it Aunty?)

I love " we are the impartial in-telly-gents"
what a wonderful line.
