Three for 3WW

naive pundits
demean their station
...inane gossip


cheers naive
chips fact from gossip
cheeky rancor trashed the station


One analyst on every news program keeps truthiness at bay.


3Word Wednesday Prompt

Can't imagine where you would get these poems from! ;)

Love the fib, it's so radical.

Kinda like you. :)

Regarding your first entry, ain't that the truth?! I'm following the elections and intended to be both informed and active. Appreicated this.

Interesting set of writings - I like the different forms of writing - You write them all very well. I like the rhyming of the second one.

Bravo! Very creative and clever. And your fractal is beautiful.

The three words this week seem destined to work together.The "news, does seem more like gossip these days and less like information to base sound judgement on.

Perfect, absolutely perfect summation of the garbage we're FED! One hundred percent accurate to how I feel while watching mainstream pundits! So damn full of them selves!
I never understand people getting excited about human tragedy. Where is the compassion in our society? Is everyone so desensitized? Don’t even get me started! This poem fired me up! Just excellent!

The second one is my favorite of the three. Your first is very smart. And, the last is so true. Thanks for sharing such wonderful pieces of art. Have a nice day.

Love the first entry. Seven words and you set my mind wondering about the news content.. mm..usually, I see, I listen and I switch station. No thinking.

The satire works well with the short forms.

I don't know how you can use words so succinctly! Each poem is like a little sculpture that has been pared down to the basics!

Wow, I didn't know what I really stumbled upon when I joined Three Word Wednesday! The writings are awesome. Like I went into a whole new world of really literate folks!

Fibonacci is a word that I vaguely came across in The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown! Don't even understand fully the explanation there. :D

But I have come across haiku as well.

All in all, I like the way you have used the 3 words this week. I think the above commentators have all appreciated your work and I too agree with assessment and appreciation
