The Curse Of The Media Poem by Raymond Farrell

The Curse Of The Media

Rating: 4.4

The curse of the media
Is this
For years
They have sensationalized
The trivial
Given credence
To the unworthy
And deliberately lied
On behalf of others
So much so that
People no longer
Know what to believe
Or how to react
And more and more
Are responding
Some with apathy
Many with cynicism
Most with a lack of trust
In anything
They hear
Propagated by the media.

Verily, a lot of paraphrasing, exaggeration and story making goes in the news making that deviates the matter.....10

Nothing is safe from the media's side-show. Sports and even the weather are hyped and hawked like a three legged, bearded woman

A lot of over exaggeration and repeats and often just rubbish. Yet sadly competition is fierce everything is so cut throat. Much enjoyed.

The best thing I did was get rid of the TV.
