In the good old days
and national tragedies
were the only reasons for
tuning in cable news on tv
But the times they are a changin’
there’s something happening here
the talking heads are pandering
to our deepest fears
If you’re concerned with commies
you can watch Fox news
if it’s fascists that you fear
CNN will do
Just want to know what’s going on
and decide your own point of view?
Go stand on a street corner,
tv is not for you
whether it’s real or whether it’s fake
I’ve had about all that I can take
Where’s Walter Cronkite when we need him?
Give me the facts, not your opinion.
