~Dear Media,~ (part 2 of the story) P.S. Readers
Someone commented to me in another forum, “The viewer has all the power in the world to decide what they can and cannot see.”
Well that is certainly true, but just because we may choose to turn away from disturbing media in all its vulgar forms, doesn’t mean it stops broadcasting.
Just because you don’t choose to imbibe the kool-aid doesn’t mean it still doesn’t get stirred. Sticking your head in the ground doesn’t stop media storms from blowing up your ass or change the fact that a tree still makes noise when it falls in the forest, even if you’re not there to hear it. The media goes on, like a bad dream, and it doesn’t matter if you think you’re awake or not.
Nightmares are a reporter’s food for thought. So yeah, you can decide whether to pay attention to the regurgitated madness we call journalism or you can ignore it. One thing is for sure though. Just because some people have rainbows over their heads doesn’t mean they’re not subject to the effects of the media on others. If y’all that naive, slide down that rainbow and tell me you didn’t land in a pot of shit instead of a pot of gold.
Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.
