Sensational headlines screaming down the wires,

doing all they can do to stoke those controversy fires.

 

It matters not if something true blue or red rot.

It's all about how much advertising time is bought,

 

not to mention the skewered perception of a person.

No, ratings Trump accuracy, if it titillates, the story runs.

 

Nothing's too much to air, no such thing as restraint.

No tip of the cap to yesteryear--Walter Cronkite this ain't!

 

They just want to stir it up, not worried about whether it's fair.

So, open some chips, open a beer, and kick back in your easy chair,

 

to watch the greatest spectacle on your television screen.

this baby's got everything, fear, sex, anger, and everything in between!
