I had a thought while walking around today.

Do you remember Baghdad Bob, during the invasion of Iraq, and how we all got a big kick out of him? He'd say that American soldiers were committing suicide outside of Baghdad, and we'd all laugh at what a huge asshole he was.

Our televised news has become Baghdad Bob. America is crumbling, piece by piece, but all the news will show is the latest poll results for the Republican race, and the stock market trends, and some scare stories about the latest plague, and some kitten videos so as not to frighten the consumers too much.

Where did ISIS come from? How did Trump get to be the frontrunner? Why are all those black people rioting in Ferguson? What's going on with global warming? What happened to all the good jobs?
The news is no longer here to report on any of these matters.
