…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
My sporadic, mini TV watching sometimes produces howlers. For example, seeing a knot of wipers pursuing some lizard, I assumed that it is a simile of the main stream media treatment of Donald Trump. Well, yes and no. Yes, but unintentionally.
For real, it is intended as an advertisement for that darling of BBC, politically correct David Attenborough, who floods TV stations worldwide with his cut and paste feel-good programmes.
Far more amusing presenter of nature programmes David Bellamy – dared to say something to the effect that the climate change is not the industrial age phenomena – and before you can say Al Gore our God he became persona non grata for the British Broadcasting Commissariat and his programmes disappeared from gleichstellung television screens. See well worth reading
I believe it is a gross misnomer to call the current usurpers of the printing presses and air waves Main Stream Media for a stream invokes something fresh, pure,cheerfully moving. Unfortunately the media by now became Main Sewer Media – foetid swamp where the only movement is provided by toxic methane bubbles from the decaying Marxist fallacies. Dishonesty and leftist activism abound and we got to the stage where the TV “reality” shows are more realistic than the TV news.
I have some sympathy for that freshly hatched iguana released into the environment teeming with enemies. The dogma of the survival of the fittest notwithstanding, in any case totally ignored by the so called environmentalists, I prefer lizards to snakes, whether in animal or human form.
Perhaps this overwhelming, disastrous cloud has silver lining – for surely by now even the most brain-washed consumer of the fabricated news, “expert” opinions and unashamedly biased commentary must realise the utter depravity of the media.
