Nano-Essay: CNN invents Hello! journalism

( – promoted by buhdydharma )

NEWS ALERT!!!

CNN reports that (OMG) Poor Latinos are victims of abuse nationwide.

When did this happen, how did this happen? Apparently it’s been going on right under our noses all the time. Why didn’t we notice it? OMG!

On another note: people are actually getting paid real money for reporting this stuff as breaking news.

I’ll admit to having been a very active participant in the 60s and early 70s and I didn’t tail off until Jerry died. But what passes for reality these days is getting way strange. It’s all of a sudden news on Earth Day 2009 that poor Latinos are getting abused? Did I miss something some where? Poor people of all sizes. shapes, colors, races, ethnicities, denominations and flavors have been getting abused since time began! I mean like, WTF!!!

There was a Jewish kid who showed up about 2000 years ago to point out the obvious. That didn’t turn out too well for him personally. But now we have CNN here to tell everyone on the planet that poor Latinos are getting abused. Thank God someone’s finally noticed.

I think reality just jumped the snark.

My idea of a vent hole at the moment is Kiluaea up Dick Cheney’s ass.

William Randolph Hearst invented Yellow Journalism when he ginned up the Spanish-American War just to sell newspapers. They forgot to teach you that in high school. Dick used Fox, CNN and all the networks to gin up the Iraq War for his oil buddies. And now CNN invents Hello! Journalism by turning the obvious into breaking news.

Great planet. I love the waves and the fish. Got some tuna steaks and steamed spinach to ingest.

I hope you all had a great Earth Day. It was a hell of a planet.

Shanti.

    We hippies are finally coming into our own.

    Maybe this song’ll cheer you up.  Great album, too.
