Washington Week…A Review

PBS’s Washington Week, previously Washington Week in Review since 1967 I’ve been a weekly Friday evening fan, however, that does not deter me from voicing two annoyances. First up after fifty-years of broadcasting does not mean that I like to be reminded of it on the screen every second the program is on the air creating an ongoing distraction. Second up, the subject banner on the screen displaying what is under discussion by the panel of journalists, that I as viewer is forced to read repeatedly, even while the tilt of the subject changes which often it does during the discussion, a major distraction… Oh, one more point, unless long time attendee Doyle McManus is in attendance, a single gray hair on any of the panelist is not likely to be seen…

What do the highest paid female television journalist and the highest paid female porn stars have in common…slutty make-up, I invite you to do the research, then return reporting your findings… If I’m lying, I’m dying, to quote a phrase… (A promise that one is telling the truth). Our television newsrooms have become overloaded with fake dye head blonds and wigs as if in a theatrical production not in the temple of truth practicing journalism of the highest order where every detail has been checked and double checked, all except hair and make-up, were falsehood can live and thrive. If there is truth in advertising with the door of ‘fake news’ looming wide open in open discussion as never before, fake dyed hair and wigs, well, it just doesn’t look good, acceptable in Hollywood, but hell no, not in news reporting, what’s next, fake blood and staged car crashes. Is it all about the ratings? It sure seems so, some have said it led to an American President with 24/7 coverage, I think so, do you?

Televised Journalism-Changing Landscape II

Among a very small primitive segment of the male population worldwide has always offered in defense of their action, being provoked, meaning that if a female is seen walking down a city street in reveling clothing and she is attacked, she was asking for it and by extension provoking males to attack her. It’s the female’s fault if attacked, her reveling outfit is an invitation to be had, a come on if you will, nothing could be further from the truth, who knows what provokes the primitive male mind to attack, it could be the smell of perfume, a red dress, who knows. No female is safe from the uncontrolled advances of men that in their mind are being provoked and find justification for their action.

Slutty make-up on a female’s face can send the wrong message, an invitation to be hugged and kissed in the mind of the primitive male mind.

A male veteran Hollywood actor of some seventy-years old was invited to comment on the Weinstein affair by a well-known television female journalist, was shocked when the actor, whether jokingly or not said, what no kiss, as part of his being greeted. This female journalist was even more shocked as he departed the interview, he again requested a kiss as a parting gift. After which she editorialized to the camera, such an exchange would not have happed if she was male. It was at that very moment that the camera allowed the viewer to get a real close look at this journalist, in streaking blond dyed hair, long false eyelashes, clownish rosy red cheeks, pouting greasy lips, in short as trashy looking as any dance hall girl in a western movie, demanded to be treated like any male journalist…

Kings Of All Media

Was NBC offered first bite at the Weinstein affair and refused to bite, not even daring to poke fun on SNL, inquiring minds want to know? The above is not unique among media, there are some stories that will never see the light of day on The Fox News platforms, that is just the way of media these days…

Did I do that?

Yesterday’s New Jersey Gubernatorial debate between fifty-eight-year old Phil Murphy and sixty-year old Kim Guadagno, was moderated by fifty-four-year old Jim Gardner and sixty-nine-year old Toni Yates was just as expected, a Chris Christie affair of back and forth. Oh wait, I’m told that based on the hair and make-up of everyone on the televised broadcast I got the ages all mixed up, I blame it on the practice of appearance television, please correct all the above… as I offer my regretful apologies… As you can see everyone looked their ages except the women…

Copper Pyrite

How long can forty-four-year-old Lisa Ling, an American journalist, appear hosting her CNN television program without ever displaying any age-related hair, meaning gray hair? If we the viewers allow it, expect it and support it as it is practiced on the heads every woman and some men on television, the dishonesty of appearance that knows has no bounds will continue. When I was a preteen, a book was handed out at class, I think it was called, Puberty, subtitled, your body is changing here’s what you should know, what to expect, and how to live with the changes.

Geriatrics, a branch of medicine dealing with the debilities of aged persons, like being an old age denier, of which there is no known cure, only products to disguise the symptoms of advanced age. Once it was discovered to market products to address aged symptoms along with the mindset that the look is undesirable, multimillions of dollars could be made, a little like fool’s gold, hoping they will never learn or know any better as the farce endures in its continuum…
