Media hype holds as much
weight as a new born pup.
Media hype is fed into almost
every story from the fuzzy
utters of entertainment.
They might as well turn
their reports into fictional
stories that are based off truth.
I've compiled these observations
from what actually develops
from their reports rather than
what they actually say to sell
their stories in the most entertaining
way that is possible.
Everything media should be live
so that they can't change up
their interviews and have the time
to add in their clever metaphors
and similes that are all baseless.
Save similes and metaphors for
novels and poetry because that is art.
Leave them out of the news because
we don't need different interpretations of the truth.
