The Lyrics

In a past that is long gone
More newspapers to see
In a past some say is gone
This term used frequently
It's called the press that's yellow
Unsightly
It's called the press that's yellow
Unsightly
It's called the press that's yellow

For example the Hearst reign
Hearst reign's something to see
Very jaundiced the Hearst reign
Believe not much you'd see
It's called the press that's yellow
Unsightly
It's called the press that's yellow
Unsightly
It's called the press that's yellow

Not highbrow, a slight to eyes
Fact capacity nil
More lies forever to ply
Every day the truth they'd kill
It's called the press that's yellow
Unsightly
It's called the press that's yellow
Unsightly
Hearst was yellow, others yellow

Geek technical bonanzas
Have brought it to the latest phase
Deceptional bonanza
Is currently just in early days
Appalling set of fellows
Quite blightly
Like that Zuckerberg fellow
Unsightly
And all those Brietbart fellows

Scammers, yeah!
Mad for verity purge
Though past days are now long gone
There's a new fake news spree
It's called the press that's yellow
Then timely
We now got fake news fellows
Unsightly
Appalling pests, these fellows
Grody fellows, toady fellows

Anything the conservatives don't agree with is "fake news".

YELLOW PRESS is what you call the so-called journalists of this day and age
