Mainstream Media Acrostic

Mainstream Media Acrostic Mealy-mouthed
state half-truths/non-truths,
swearing they are all-true.

Meanwhile, IRS, Benghazi, AP phone records
extirpate the Social Contract,
demonstrate a lack of trust—
in whom, exactly, no one knows;
all are suspect, all condemned!

Biggest issues wallow
uninspected: wars, pollution,
loss of dignity;
loss of coherence, basic values.
Slime in the Arts, and in the perverse
hearts of our
Inquisitors, confuses, stampedes,
terrorizes, silences the herd.
