The Lyrics

I think this song might be a follow up to my other song About News. If this song does not convince you to stop watching 24/7 news channels and just go online and support independent media, I pity your faulty paradigm. Also, this song was inspired by Project Veritas' efforts to expose CNN for their form of journalism. It is from the album cut Synthetica.
(Verse 1)
Debates, we heard, platitudes, which are all absurd
Behind the desks, with a crowd
Get your point across, send it to the cloud
Give us a soundbite, a soundbite
Deep in the scrum, trying to make us dumb

(Verse 2)
Fact check, we need, journalism is a-bout greed
Behind the desks, read a screen
Millionaires, with boring routine
Never give the facts, no retractions made
Attacking Trump, but then they get played

Truth, without truth
Truth, without truth
Truth, without truth
Truth, without truth

(Verse 3)
Tickers, we see, words scroll by, as we’re trying to read
Advertise, for bottom line
Movies drugs and cars, consumption by design
I think I will buy
Those products, I think I will buy
Charge, my, charge, my, card now!

Truth, without truth
Truth, without truth
Now, now, now, now!
Now
Truth, without truth
Truth, without truth
Now, now, now, now!

(Verse 4)
Footage, on screen, battlefield, makes a bloody scene
Kenturkey, range looking mean+
Anchors rec-ords are not clean
Happier with snow
All the same
For ratings, we’ll take the fame

Mainstream, toxic, watch too much, and be neurotic
Truth without truth, this is a crime
Truth without truth, think I’ll go online

Truth, without truth
Truth, without truth
Line, line, line, line!
Line, line, line, line!
Truth, without truth
Truth, without truth
Line, line, line, line!

(Outro)
+ = ABC News was using footage from a Kentucky gun range and spun the story as Kurds being killed in Turkey. Hence the term Kenturkey. I hope this song is in a karaoke catalog seems too recent.

We needed an undercover expose to realize that CNN was distorting and slanting news in.favor of the Dems? Seems to me all you really needed was an IQ in triple figures
