Politics... Bang! Bang!

Now its not what we say, but how we say it... euphemism sometimes, other times exaggeration... you have to adapt to the need... the need of the narrative... the agenda is all... but never admit bias, wink wink... that's the catch-22... the third rail... honesty will get you nowhere in politics and journalism... obfuscate, obfuscate like a motherfucker... spin the spin on a wobbling tilt til you vomit...

 

The children, the children... O, the fucking children... get me more video and audio of children crying... and the more hysterical the better... remember the hysterical grieving weeping mothers and wives in the Middle East back in the day?... O, you nailed it!... just like that... emotionemotionemotionemotion sellszzzz... give them their catharsis... they want it, they need it... its palpable... you can taste it, right?... and use that editor I like... that guy has a God-given intuition for the tragic... I greatly admire his work from afar...

 

As an apolitical freelance consultant with nihilistic tendencies, I "strongly encouraged" my liberal client to run with the seperation of children from their parents and the resulting lifelong trauma that entails... and my conservative client got the recommendation for "renewed focus" on the responsibility of the parents for bringing their children on the trek knowingly risking their welfare, safety, and lives in the process... I finished the rapid-fire texting sessions with both of them, checked my PayPal account for the deposits... $20,000 for less than 30 minutes of "strategizing"... kicked back in the leather-bound recliner with a baggy of fentanyl-laced heroin... and switched from channel to channel and back watching the game play out through the lazy stagnant afternoon.
