The Lyrics

If you haven't heard about the Jeff Gannon scandal yet, go Google it and prepare to be astounded. Then understand that while I could easily have done a parody about GAY MALE PROSTITUTES IN THE WHITE HOUSE PRESSROOM!!, I instead chose to address the scarier issue: the complete loss of objective White House coverage. It's not just Fox and Talon, it's everywhere. Then there's the four or five "journalists" who were paid to report favorably on the Bush agenda - and it appears that this is just the tip of the iceberg. It's truly a pity - journalism was once an honorable profession.
What to think - watching the news
None to trust, none impartial
Got agendas while the rest got the blues
For their man they will shill to survive
Say anything they get paid to say
They trade their honor for money
They try to smear all who stand in their way
And they lie, 'cause it keeps them alive

There's a new kind of prostitute in DC tonight
Sucking up like they wanna be Jeff Gannon
If they're lacking integrity and living on spite
Then they're probably working for Fox or for Talon

Facing Bush - give him no heat
On their knees, Scottie-hungry
They'll stack the deck till we take to the street
They can see us on C-Span at five

There's a new kind of whoring in the press room, all right
Acting like Armstrong Williams or Jeff Gannon
Muzzle up Helen Thomas if she puts up a fight
'Cause they're probably working for Fox or for Talon

Got a pass - straight to the top
Kissin' ass, softball questions
While it's paying, propaganda won't stop
For their man, they will shill to survive

See the new kind of prostitutes work DC tonight
Sell themselves like they wanna be Jeff Gannon
If it's not ethical or even legal or right
Then they're probably working for Fox or for Talon

For Fox or for Talon...

Damn man, apparently my taste in music must suck ass, I loved this song, yeah it was overplayed to death and in a movie with 4 sequals, but that has NO BEARING WHAT SO ALL on this parody. I guess what one poster said to me was true: If you post anything political or gross you will get crucified. But not from me, 544 for you.

Yeah, I've come to expect the ones guys to show up whenever I get political, so I don't get too attached to the point count. I'm just glad they refrain from commenting. But thank you for your kind attention! -- Rave
