Every Sunday evening, the 60 Minutes contributors and correspondents, introduce themselves in what seem like true to life appearances, is not, if suspected of bank robbery, our descriptions of them would be deeply flawed, we have been deceived with an elaborate, organized, well planned masquerade, involving hair dyes and wigs. After the opening, we, the viewers, are expected to believe every single word out of their mouths, just after having been lied to in the opening introduction, which in my humble opinion, places their credibility at an all-time low for the rest of the program. I now call for a complete investigation of their every reported story for accuracy, with the added question, as to why we were deceived at the opening after winning our confidence with the stating of their names, which begs the wondering, if they were even their real names, or just another fabrication, designed to win us over and influence our trust in reliance…From now on, I will look upon every televised newscast with suspicion, it’s becoming a certainty, that another master is being served, and it’s not journalism, it’s the buying and selling of an strategic image in marketing rating numbers, with a perceived pleasing presentation of hair dyes and heads bathed in ill-fitting periwigs.
Forgive me, as my DVR’d, As The World Turns is starting to play…I’ll be back again next week with another edition of…. What’s the name of this show anyway?
