“ In the hell brew of media whoredom that began spewing forth when word of Michael Jackson’s demise got out, 5 p.m. –ish Eastern time Thursday, CNN leapt from 1.1. million viewers to 4 million, MSNBC jumped from 600,000 to 2 million, and FOX News Channel bounced from 2 million to 3.5 million. Not surprisingly, Larry King, the man the world turns to for dead people, clocked 4 million”. So wrote, Lisa de Moraes, (The TV column, Wash. Post.)
I think I like her. She writes the way it is supposed to be written. For someone who has spent a lot of time with whores in academia, I have an acute sense whenever whoredom is mentioned.
Whoredom is not limited to the media nor academia. Some of those so-called leaders in the third world, who are in positions of power to fulfill the wishes of their foreign masters, instead of working for the interests of their citizens are prostitutes. Worse are those who beg their foreign masters to help them overthrow those regimes so that they become better whores in the name of Democracy.
I have the highest of regards to those who have licenses and pay taxes from their incomes as whores. It is those who prostitute without licenses, and hide under the guise of peoples’ representatives that irk me. Specially, when I see them in the tube with their lobbyist purchased suits and silk ties.
Our U.S. members of Congress, who have always sold us out to the interests of big business, are the leading members of whoredom. Our representatives who haven’t met a lobbyist they didn’t like are of the highest echelon of prostitutes. They don’t come cheap, but still are whores.
Just to spite me, I know what congress would do to the health care bill. The congress men would bend in so many ways humanly possible, to accomplish what insurance lobbyists ask of them. Once they have satisfied their masters, they will throw out the health care bill. They are well paid, and they would do what is expected in whoredom.
