Fox Hypocrisy (Limerick)

Monday, July 12th, 2021

Fox Newsers may cause the demise
Of their viewers with anti-vax cries.
“It’s my body,” they whine.
“It’s my choice!” Yet they’re fine
With abortion rights cut down to size.

Ousted Liz Cheney, Still Speaking Out (2-Verse Limerick)

Wednesday, May 12th, 2021

Headline: “Cheney, stripped of leadership position, vows to keep Trump from returning to presidency”

Liz Cheney’s been rudely expelled
From the leadership post that she held.
Now the House GOP
Is hoping to be
Free to parrot Trump’s lies, with Liz quelled.

But this ouster won’t stop her from speaking;
She’ll keep Trump-centric BS critiquing.
Liz will fight back with vigor,
Her megaphone bigger,
As she calls out the havoc Trump’s wreaking.

Liz Cheney Clickbait (Limerick)

Monday, May 3rd, 2021

Headline: “Scoop: GOP leaders threaten Cheney ouster”

Will Liz Cheney be ousted from leadership?
That’s a question that media readership
Has been asking these days,
Lured by clickbaiting ways
Used by writers in columns and Tweetership.

Tucker Carlson Deceit (Limerick)

Friday, April 30th, 2021

Headline: “Fox News host Tucker Carlson claims making children wear masks is ‘abuse’”

A kid in a mask? That’s “abuse,”
According to Carlson, who’s loose
With his words on the air.
But Tuck doesn’t care:
“Call the cops,” like he says … then vamoose.

Lou Dobbs Loses Job (Limerick)

Monday, February 8th, 2021

Headline: “Why Fox News canceled Lou Dobbs”

Lou Dobbs has been ousted by Fox
Cuz a lawsuit has Fox in a box.
Will Jeanine and Maria
Be next? Great idea!
May Smartmatic clean all their clocks!

Poor Josh Hawley??? (Limerick)

Monday, January 25th, 2021

Headline: “Sen. Josh Hawley Mocked for Claiming to Be ‘Muzzled’ in His ‘Splashy Front-Page’ NY Post Feature”

Poor Josh Hawley complains he’s been muzzled.
But his claim’s keeping many folks puzzled;
He’s a Sen. with a book
And a cover pic. Look,
Maybe Hawley just needs to be nuzzled.

Is That A Threat? Or A Promise? (Limerick)

Sunday, April 26th, 2020

Donald “threatens” to cut down his time
At press briefings. That sounds sublime!
Fewer lies! Less confusion!
More facts! Less delusion!
Few boot-lickers! Who’s smiling? I’m!

The Press Messes Up Yet Again (Limerick)

Thursday, March 28th, 2019

Eric Boehlert on Twitter: “the press is now doing postmortems on the Mueller Report, which they haven’t read.”

Dear press, do not do a postmortem
On the Mueller Report. Please abort ’em.
It’s unseen and unread,
So you can’t put to bed
Or assess it. Don’t write or report ’em.

Trump Dumps Yet Another Press Chief (Limerick)

Saturday, March 9th, 2019

Headline: “Instead of a New Press Chief, Trump Could Try Committing Fewer Crimes”

Trump’s approach to bad press isn’t wise;
He blames staffers, replacing the guys
And the women whose quest
Is good press. I suggest
Cutting down on his crimes and his lies.

Limerick Ode To Concern Trolls

Monday, November 26th, 2018

Pundits tell us to exercise care
Re subpoenas; that Dems should beware
Of behavior too zealous.
Great caution they’d sell us…
Just like GOP warnings they’d air???

Open Limerick To The White House Press

Monday, August 6th, 2018

White House briefings don’t give us the news.
No instead they spread self-serving views
And start lie-fest infernos.
They demonize journos.
Why attend them? The press should refuse.

Open Limerick To White House Press

Thursday, May 3rd, 2018

Jennifer Rubin: “I honestly see no reason for the daily press conference. If she lies it is pointless.”

Dear journos, explain: Why attend
Sanders’ pressers? She lies without end.
There is naught to be gained
From “info” that’s feigned.
Do your homework, make calls, phone a friend.

Sinclair’s Scheme (Limerick)

Wednesday, April 4th, 2018

Headline: “Sinclair producer in Nebraska resigns to protest ‘obvious bias'”

The Trump-loving owner Sinclair
Mandates talking points over the air;
Outlets MUST yell “Fake News”
To dupe and confuse.
The target’s all media that’s fair.

What’s Next For Steve Bannon? A Modest Proposal

Tuesday, January 9th, 2018

Steve Bannon from Breitbart’s been banned;
By the no-mercy Mercers, unmanned.
What’s next for that slob —
Donald’s ex-fav’rite blob?
Does the KKK’s Duke need a hand?

The Trump Threat (Limerick)

Saturday, October 21st, 2017

Is Donald a threat to free press?
Well of course my response must be yes.
But much more is in peril
From President Feral;
There’s no end to his menacing mess.

*****

As I train my brain
on our Oval Office bane,
staying sane’s a strain.

Trump v. The Press (Limerick)

Thursday, October 5th, 2017

Donald Trump’s always fighting a war on
The media, trying to score on
The press via Twitter.
The fellow’s a bitter
And nasty old man and a MORON!

A Trumpian Perspective (Limerick)

Saturday, September 30th, 2017

Unsupportive opinions? Flake views!
Unflattering numbers? A ruse!
No matter the topic,
The Donald’s myopic;
If it isn’t pro-Trump, it’s “Fake News!”

“Fake News” Hypocrisy (Limerick)

Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

Trump, who loves to slam “unnamed sources” as “fake news,” retweeted “FOX & friends” today:

Jared Kushner didn’t suggest Russian communications channel in meeting, source says.

“Unnamed sources are bad! They spread lies.”
It’s “fake news” when they’re used, Donald cries.
And yet sources unnamed
Who’ve loudly proclaimed
Stuff he likes? Those are upright and wise.

He’s BACK! (Limerick)

Sunday, May 28th, 2017

The Donald’s back bashing the press
After making a terrible mess
Of his meetings with leaders,
Relieving his readers
Of tweet-storm withdrawal distress.

Trump’s Inability To Take A Joke Is NO Joking Matter (Limerick)

Sunday, April 23rd, 2017

I agree: Holding a pep rally to compete with the White House Correspondents’ Dinner makes Trump look vain, insecure, and cowardly.

The Donald is holding a rally
To avoid being roasted. I’d tally
His compulsion to hide
From jokes that deride
As YUUUUGE … which may goose his finale.
