3 strange things

Top photographers are ever mindful of reflective surfaces. 


Amartel said...

Really makes you think about what passes for "news" these days.
Dopes with camera phones are "photographers."
Agenda-driven controversy-magnets are "journalists."
Fat, weepy, crazy conspiracy nuts are "newsworthy."

Looking forward to seeing as many of these grifters as possible go out of business.


So, you listen to me. Listen to me!

Television is not the truth. Television's a goddamn amusement park. Television is a circus, a carnival, a traveling troupe of acrobats, storytellers, dancers, singers, jugglers, sideshow freaks, lion tamers, and football players.

We're in the boredom-killing business.

So if you want the Truth, go to God.

Go to your gurus.

Go to yourselves!

Because that's the only place you're ever gonna find any real truth.

But, man, you're never gonna get any truth from us. We'll tell you anything you wanna hear. We lie like hell. We'll tell you that Kojak always gets the killer and that nobody ever gets cancer at Archie Bunker's house. And no matter how much trouble the hero is in, don't worry. Just look at your watch. At the end of the hour, he's gonna win. We'll tell you any shit you want to hear.

We deal in illusions, man. None of it is true!

But you people sit there, day after day, night after night -- all ages, colors, creeds.

We're all you know!

You're beginning to believe the illusions we're spinning here!

You're beginning to think that the tube is reality and that your own lives are unreal.

You do whatever the tube tells you --

You dress like the tube.

You eat like the tube.

You raise your children like the tube.

You even think like the tube.

This is mass madness, you maniacs!

In God's name, you people are the real thing.

We are the illusion!

So turn off your television sets. Turn them off now! Turn them off right now! Turn them off and leave them off. Turn them off right in the middle of this sentence I'm speaking to you now.

Amartel is mad as hell.

There isn't any news anymore, just news broadcasters.

Methadras said...

They aren't even broadcasters. They are concoctors/manufacturers of news. They literally, as we've seen with CNN create shots and scenes to look like news. They've taken Goebbels "A lie told once remains a lie but a lie told a thousand times becomes the truth" to literal heart and use it to fabricate news and events that never occurred other than in their studios and broadcasts.

Methadras said...

Another one of Goebbels creedos, that the leftists have taken to heart and love.

"Propaganda must facilitate the displacement of aggression by specifying the targets for hatred."

We already see the leftists doing this very thing. They've are the SJW brownshirts that have been the leftist intellectuals enforcers.

The "turn off your tv" quote in my comment, above, is the Howard Beale rant in "Network."

Amartel said...

The only update it needs is to include turning off your Facebook, your Twitter, your instagram and the rest of the social justice media internet feed.

Is that Bloody Meghan Kelly?

It's hard for me to get angry with a boner. She is so hot, and should not be alone with that fat fuck conspiracy salesman!

"Trust me, this conspiracy is in perfect condition. It's a classic, and was only driven on Sundays to church by a little old lady."

It's Fridaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy!

What Jones and CNN do aren't that far apart.

Chip Ahoy said...

Facebook off a long time ago.
Twitter followed.
Instagram never had a chance.

Man, I hate being told to do what I've already done. It's a character flaw. I know that. But there it is.
