Media Circus- OJ Suffers Citrus Canker

Media Circus- OJ Suffers Citrus Canker

By Will Roberts

Now it is hard to see the forest through the trees when we keep focusing on the fruit that falls from it! OJ is no longer a falling fruit... more like rotten on the vine, still the media follows him like it was a first date. Therefore, I have decided to run this story.

All I know is what I read on the Internet . . . Extra, Extra . . . The circus is in town-- the media circus that is. Or should I say the freak show? Never will you see a more contorted, odder cast of characters than at a good media blitz. And this week’s big story involves an animal, a vegetable, and a mineral that we are paying too much money for. Now don’t get me wrong, I myself, being a reporter, know that us media folks are not all to blame. After all, you have to read it before you believe it. But I will say that the media has more power than any politician. They are able to leap tall buildings in single bound, are more powerful than a locomotive, can start a war one day and ruin a career the other, and be back in time for the evening edition before you form your option.

But don’t be confused; not all media types are alike, no sir.

You got the newspaper where the pen is mightier than the sword – unless it was used in a crime.

With the TV news, it’s hash and re-hash... and re-hash.

And finally, there is the tabloid reporter. They keep a tab on all the untouchables we have in Hollywood; so much so, that when they get done with them no one wants to touch them anymore.

If it does not bleed it does not lead. I have worked in news for a few years, and I have suggested many a "good will" stories, and let me tell you, I was told that if I attach that story idea to myself and jump from the highest building that when I hit the bottom, then I just might have myself a story. Headline reads, "Man Saves Humanity But Falls to His Death Trying".

My plan: If you want to keep the press away from your event, then send them a press release and title it, “NON-profit,” and subtitle it, "How to make people's lives better". Then they, the press folk, will surely not attend. Then, pray you don’t have an accident at that event.
