Get your news from the cable Tilt-O-Whirl,
it's quite enough to make me hurl.
 
Real news filtered through wishful thinking,
hear what you want while the truth is sinking.
 
Some racist in a ratty robe and underwear
posts his opinion, which is passed on as fair,
 
unbiased fact, takes on a life of its own,
and suddenly, outrage and anger are sown.
 
No unvarnished truth, either, from cable News,
who hide behind a skewered world view,
 
and bloviate it as truth, pass it on as rock-solid fact.
The truth is, dependable reporting has been hijacked,
 
and replaced by opinion, omissions, misleading trash
that renders us blind as they explode with a 'crash!'
