Media Gets A Well-Deserved Hand Slap from FBI (Limerick)

It’s pathetic how many respected news outlets published false reports today of an arrest in the Boston Marathon bombings.

Inaccurate Arrest Reports Need To Be Arrested (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Dear news outlets, use some restraint:
Stop reporting arrests, when there ain’t.
Publish news, and NOT litter.
You’re far worse than Twitter,
And your need to be first leaves a taint.

    Respected news outlets? Therein lies the problem. In electronic media, there no longer are any ‘respected news outlets.’ They have all become profit centers looking for ratings, populated by celebrities looking for fame. I am sickened just by looking at them on the tube, with their fake earnestness, faux compassion, and foundationless expertise. Funny how so many so called ‘serious’ and dedicated journalists in recent years have also become mostly square jawed, handsome men or smoldering, skin perfect babes. Journalists? Yea right. News organizations? Puh-leeze.

  2. CNN, jerks, hacks and kooks,
    O’Keefe lies and fascistic spooks
    ‘merika’s most trusted
    Are once again busted
    It’s big scoop? Balloon Boy redux.

    I don’t care if this is late. I just had to write it

    Money-grubbing news anchors show restraint
    Stop quoting unnamed sources who ain’t
    Since there is no way to dispose of digital litter
    Just post all this crap on Twitter.
    Or get some washable paint

    Beefless O’Keefe is an Acorn-stealing thief. Fake-pimp Jimmy O’ is no journalist…hasn’t he become a stock boy at D’ag supermarket? See, O’Keefe, we can concoct stories too.
