Journalism Died Today

Journalism died today.
It did yesterday, too.
In a rush to get the story
Turns out it wasn’t true.

Networks agenda driven,
What fits their narrative ?
They’ll come up with something
With which listeners can live.

Something big happened today,
They’d rather not report.
Given their ideology
It just does not comport.

It’s easy just to say nothing.
What they don’t know will not hurt.
A less important story
Will handily divert .

It’s a brilliant method
Of keeping America confused.
No consistency in the stories
Because we’re watching different news .
