Jack Johnson - Media Sage Vol. 1 (The News)

Jack Johnson makes some of the best comments about Media and culture of any musician or public figure I know...and he does it in a very poetic way. In the first post of a series "Jack Johnson - Media Sage."

Here's quotes from the song The News by Jack Johnson off the album Brushfire Fairytales.

A billion people died on the news tonight
But not so many cried at the terrible sight
Well mama said
It's just make believe
You can't believe everything you see


Who's the one to decide that it would be alright
To put the music behind the news tonight


The diagetic world is so unclear
So baby close your ears
On the news tonight


Why don't the newscasters cry when they read about people who
die?

At least they could be decent enough to put just a tear in their
eyes
