You’re Watching Sky News

 

The incredibly poor quality of most mainstream media reporting is both disgraceful and disturbing. An insult to the collective intelligence, they are succeeding in stupefying tens of millions with their daily doses of uninformed, and often dangerous, opinions, masquerading as news. I no longer watch Sky News, their smug arrogance just makes me angry.

It’s 6 o’clock,
Thank you for tuning in,
Our latest session of indoctrination
Is about to begin,
Another dose of propaganda,
Of our opinion and views;
We’re dumbing you down,
You’re watching Sky News.

Each report is a crisis,
It’s just how we present,
If there isn’t any crisis
We’ll find one to invent,
Creating some fear, even a panic,
If that’s what we choose;
We’re dumbing you down,
You’re watching Sky News.

Our team of ultracrepidarians
Are used everywhere,
As a news anchor or correspondent,
We really don’t care,
Finance today, health tomorrow,
So often the plot they will lose;
We’re dumbing you down,
You’re watching Sky News.

Video footage carefully edited,
There’s a narrative to protect,
We’re certain our gullible audience
Just won’t ever suspect;
We know unedited footage
Would only serve to confuse;
We’re dumbing you down,
You’re watching Sky News.

We still can’t accept Brexit,
Or that Trump was elected,
And by that utter climate nonsense
Our whole team is infected,
But after all it’s our choice
If your intelligence we abuse;
We’re dumbing you down,
You’re watching Sky News.  

Our news isn’t fake,
It’s just not always real,
But we hold the moral high ground,
So we can say what we feel,
And as we’re sure critical thinking
Is something our viewers don’t use;
We’ll keep on dumbing them down,
Thanks for watching Sky News!
