News That Isn’t, A Poem – 3TC

Read the daily paper and your anger will quite flare,

The stuff they sell as news I sometimes wonder why they dare…

Often times misleading and very seldom true,

I could go on and on until my face turns rather blue…

But I must be going, must check out of this hotel,

Head far from this city where such thoughts I can dispel.


I get disgusted by the lack of objectivity in todays news streams. Newsprint, radio, tv, internet, the platform doesn’t seem to matter. Each presents an agenda, and the agenda isn’t just reporting what has happened but is laden with tons of opinion and misdirection.

On another note,I am happy with the flow of this Three Things Challenge (3TC#20) entry for the words anger, paper, and hotel hosted at pensitivity.

What do you think?

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
