“The News” doesn’t want you to know the news. That is no longer the job of the media. Their job now is to entertain and keep you distracted. Is that not, by now, painfully obvious?
For instance: The media feels that it’s imperative that we be kept up to date regarding Britney Spears’ current psychological problems, Paris Hilton’s current legal problems, and we absolutely must know, at all times, exactly who is dating who and who is divorcing who in the world of glamour, fame and fortune. These things, the media feels, are of the utmost importance. We MUST be kept informed regarding these issues!
Hell, I can turn on the T.V. at any time of the day and find at least a couple of channels that are delivering a full plate of the hottest celebrity gossip.
But, guess what! You don’t need to know that shit! You don’t need to know who’s dating who, or who might be putting some famous penis in their mouth, or squeezing some celebrity tit. IT DOESN’T FUCKING MATTER! It makes no difference to your life whether or not Britney is crazy, or Micheal is creepy and eccentric, or if Paris is fucking her dog. IT DOESN’T FUCKING MATTER! Those people, and how they’re living their lives, DON’T FUCKING MATTER!
Do you know what kind of celebrity gossip might matter — what sort of celebrity news you might benefit from, in some real way, by being informed about? Well, for one, if a well known and respected American celebrity had publicly called for the impeachment of the president of the United States of America. That is exactly the sort of celebrity gossip that you may have an actual need of which to be informed. That would be of benefit to you. That is information that you can use in order to benefit your current situation.
Why? Because it just might serve to illustrate a real problem in your society which may actually be having an effect on your life. Celebrities are always screwing around with each other. They’re always doing crazy, kooky shit. But, if the world is running along smoothly, and everything is just hunky-dory, then the sane and respected ones usually aren’t openly calling for the impeachment of the damn President! Such behaviour just might be an indication that something is wrong with the world in which you live.
So, this brings me to a question: In your personal observation, how much time has the media devoted to attempting to inform you that Willie Nelson, last week, had openly called for the Impeachment of George Bush?
Willie Nelson isn’t just some dumb pop-star, or hack Hollywood actress who possesses more bubble-gum than brains — He’s a living legend. He’s an American Icon. The man IS a living, breathing, walking article of pure Americana. And, he has publicly indicated that, in his opinion, something is drastically wrong with how his country is currently being run, and he thinks that his fellow citizens should “throw the bastards out!”
But, the media has remained utterly and completely silent. They don’t want to inform you of this recent development. Not to worry though! You can bank on the fact that they’ll diligently keep you up to date with the latest information, so that you can make an informed decision, as to whether Brittany fucking Spears is a good mother or not.
