"Some would say..." [insert inflammatory text here]
'Yada, yada, yada....'some would say'....yada, yada yada....make Talking Point [here].
[interject] 'politely' to your co-host....and emphasize the 'Talking Point' by repeating it....co-host nods in agreement, perhaps utters some purr
or other intelligible grunt of response....'CUT' to commercial, some self-contratulation, a few tasty treats thrown to you by the on-set
Producers/Handlers....then, it's "4-3-shhh"....and back On Air to giggle at the Democrats, and then instantly change those smiles into 'serious
looks' as you decry the latest 'invented' "OUTRAGE"!!!!!!
Oh, this has been done so many times.....the 'barkers' of the circus.....the 'RainMakers' in the DustBowl....the 'snake oil salesmen'.....Granny
on "The Beverly Hillbillies"....
Best example: from the musical 'Chicago'. The number? "Razzle-Dazzle 'em".
*EDIT*...because comedy is hard to write....(that's why I don't work for "Fox News"!)...ba dum-bump!!!
Barnum-Bailey --- entertainers. 'RainMakers' --- users. Granny --- well, satirical sterotype....OK, entertainer.....
"News" shows that are really a masquerade for 'propoganda'....this is vile beyond reproach. Certainly, biases exist everywhere....ATS is a fine
example....BUT there are (were) basic journalistic axioms that should not be crossed....and the 'Empire of the Murdoch' blurs those ethical
boundaries to asuch an extent that it requires constant supervision....and THAT is a crying shame.....
