TTN

Okay, I was half asleep, half awake when I heard something that was slightly unnerving, if not down-right worrying. The shocking thing that I found suddenly rattling around inside my head was ‘TTN’, a potential new television network that could be heading for the US and then possibly, according to my desynchronized mind, the world.

What does TTN stand for, you might ask? Well, are you sitting down....okay, I’ll tell you. It stands for Trump Television Network! The President of the United States is, apparently, considering starting his own collection of stations and programmes. (I was under the impression that this almost pretty much existed, just with a different name, but then what do I know.)

This piece of news was so.....disturbing that I had to lay back down for a minute. Perhaps closing my eyes was not the best thing to do for then there were visions of Big Brother in my head (and I don’t mean the series). No, images of Orwell’s ‘1984’ drifted in front of my eyes. First America, then the rest of the world!

Now, I have to admit that I have heard no further mention of it, but then I have been avoiding the television like it might just leap up and bite me. It could be what the man himself would label ‘Fake News’, or it could be the remnants of a dream. All I can say is I hope it was one or the other – for the sake of humanity, for the sake of the world.
