This work has reached the exceptional level
Where confusion and deception reigns

The life of a cable news junkie.


"The Life of a............" Contest Winner 
The author has placed a warning on this post for language.
She wraps herself in cable news
Devouring opposing views;
Between Fox news and CNN,
Flips back and forth then back again.

As she pursues this quest for truth,
She fancies herself quite a sleuth;
But soon, she finds to her dismay-
Malleable facts are made of clay.

The gray zone, where most truths reside,
Is buried in formaldehyde.

Depressed, she's faced with what she's found-
Too much bullshit to dance around;
Fox seems to gift wrap all Trump's lies,
While CNN seeks his demise.

She pulls the plug, says, "What the f*#%
These journalists have run amuck."
