Fake News

How often we fall in a vicious trap,
social channels portraying doctored episodes,
news channels throwing in their biased opinions,
and the print media showing scenes that never occurred,

And we create a dissonance,
an opinion and nurture hatred,
I don’t know why we fall to such a cheap trick
when we know
even what we see through naked eyes could be a setup
and what we hear may not bear the truth,
yet we get drawn into such obnoxious world,
for we enjoy being entertained than bestowing veracity

  2. Nurtured hatred is such a good phrase, we retreat into our safe echo chambers of news and opinion, and too often enjoy the bear-pit thrill.
    I try to read a newspaper several times a week with differing views to my own, and try to steer from tabloid sensation.
