THE GLOBAL MEDIA

Be wary of the global media

It's run by power-seeking men

Who see themselves as king-makers

With a reach far beyond a mere pen.

 

The home of hysteria and hyperbole,

Banging drums of alarm and despair -

The source of maintaining confusion

In search of the very latest scare.

 

There''s a love of being game-changers...

Of keeping us all on our toes,

With alerts and warnings about "dangers"

Eager to add to our woes.

 

Now it's twenty four hours - no let up,

No cessation to what they report

About what's bad that will see us get het up

And in need of some sort of support!

 

Note what is announced circumspectly,

With a dose of the old pinch of salt;

Use the on and off button directly

To bring electronic intrusions to a halt!

Having spent weeks canvasing the opinions of teens and twenty somethings when I was writing newspaper copy, I was informed ad nauseum that the reason for the fall in newspaper sales and dropping news viewing numbers is "it's all lies"....what a truly devastating state of affairs. One young lady actually told me she thought the Beeb should give everyone a refund for beaming propaganda into their homes!
Enjoyed the poem..cheers

Thanks for the comments and the "likes". In my retirement, after
years of public service, I channel-hop the late evening news channels and note how similar they are with their preponderance of doom, gloom and scare stories. I wonder about the mind-set of those behind the news who direct what is shown/reported - and in
what sequence/quantity. And just who is pulling THEIR strings?

M:C:,

a poem full of wisdom which encapsulates an explanation and warning of what has become a daily diet created to generate anxiety, despair and depression in unlimited amounts. Let us not be intimidated or manipulated by this.

Thank you for this
Keith
