After Watching and Reading This Evening's News
I hate to have to tell you this. You're stupid.
Journalists typically are. While others are
Learning sciences, history, concepts and facts
Which will give them perspective, you study
Writing and putting on make-up, and every
Event that you rush to encounter proves that
You're clueless. You grasp for cliches to
"Interpret" these things that you can't
Understand. You're vacantly credulous when
People lie, and you pass on opinions when
You're short of facts. At one time, I'm told,
Journalists were respected. Now, they are
Ridiculed. Often, they're scorned,
And they are for good reason. They all
Are quite stupid, and, into that "they,"
I add you.
