The fox is hunting us

They choose and ooze one-sided views
Which suffuse weak minds and confuse 
With truth distorted
Fair and balanced thwarted
Fox News is the ultimate ruse

Author's note: Someone at work puts this on in the gym all day.  The "reporters" are paid to gab about what matters from the very rich and selfish point of view.  It is a real freak show.  People I know who I thought were intelligent repeat the talking points with absolute belief.  Fortunately, a lot of people sense the charade.

    World news is very different than the news that is hand fed to us in north America. You make an excellent point.

    A thought provoking limerick, which probably applies to most media outlets Duke. I particularly like the line 'Which suffuse weak minds and confuse.' Well done.

    Unfortunately the media industry stopped reporting "news" years ago, switching instead to the more profitable "entertainment" venue. Each much decide facts for themselves, often with incomplete or inaccurate information. Good expression of a broader symptom Duke. I always appreciate how much you pack into so few words…john
