From the recording Warning Bell
Bad News (partial capo on fret 2, 3- in E)
First they tell us what the White House said
As if it were the Gospel truth.
Then instead of checking the facts
They interview Dr. Ruth.
They bring in a couple of Senators.
One spins left the other right.
Then some expert on the Corporate take
Tells us the future is bright.
No one gives us a shred of information
That a thinking mind can use.
Bad news. Bad news. Bad news. Bad news.
It used to be TV news was great. It was like you were really there.
But now Disney Inc. and Rupurt Murdock control that public air.
Everything is a preplanned photo op dressed as a reality show.
It’s all about the ratings now. It’s a job that they call “snow”.
So now I turn to the Internet, but I have to watch my step.
Maybe the BBC will know, maybe MoveOn, but no, not yet.
Have you noticed how all the articles are word for word the same.
It’s cut and paste investigation and quoting blogs. It’s all insane.
