No Joy In Morning Joy

There is no joy in Mudsville journalism for mighty objectivity has struck out
Advocacy “journalism” has put reporting the news into a hasty rout
There is no joy in Morning Joy
Drowned out by the anti Trump bias deployed
Reid claims that this is the best time to be a journalist
A barb against her qualifications too hard to resist
Journalism’s major tenet is to find and the trust report
It is not to fit the reporter’s bias the facts to distort
Listen to Joy Reid and this revelation to the viewers should come as no surprise
Her lack of honesty and impartiality and overwhelming bias is impossible to disguise
A journalist in name only, a complete hollow shell
A walking editorial masquerading as news with an agenda to sell
She also claimed that under Trump it is the worse time to be a human
Looking at history such claim reveals a complete lack of acumen
In her mind the millions killed by the Plague or the Spanish Flu
Or in the trenches of World War One or in the battles of World War Two
Or the starvation of millions by Stalin in  Ukraine
Or the removal of 6 million Jews from the Reich’s domains
Or the genocide of the Armenians by the Turks
Or the rapes and beheadings in Nanking by the Japanese gone berserk
Or the genocides in Rwanda and the Balkans or the Khmer Rouge Killing Fields
Are mere speed bumps compared to the dangers a Trump presidency will wield
With comments like that when she comes on grab your remote and channel change click
Such rants will outrage you, raise your blood pressure and otherwise make you sick.
