The sound of no hand clapping

There is a Zen Koan which talks about the sound of a single hand clapping – there is a case of American media’s treason which is like truth being the sound of no hand clapping and I’m not talking about the anti-news all lies, all the time FOX news (so called because it F*cks the news) but about CNN USA which is supposed to be neutral but shows it saying on the one hand some people say X and on the other hand others say Y as though just because someone may say, “The cow jumped over the moon,” makes it as valid as the person who says, “The cow cannot jump over the moon.”

I’m being very spiritual and thus not writing much on this web site. It is very difficult to write out of protest and anger with the disgusting state of American political system (a banana republic where bribery is legal – just called campaign contribution, lobbying, freedom of speech for corporations) and yet remain spiritual.

However, this morning I was stupid enough to watch CNN and the person (I’m doing my best to be kind – I was thinking total idiot but that does not go too well with being spiritual) on the boob tube (that’s being too kind when talking about the mass media – with all blonds all the time – Tiger, OJ, the blond in Italy and so on – who give a f*** – obviously the stupid ignorant American masses of lumpenproletariats care a lot).

So the guy on CNN said the equivalent of some people believe the universe is only six thousand years old as though that makes their non-thinking as valid as scientific evidence.

Anyway, anger aside, the point is that being neutral does not mean reporting any and everything without a comment. There is a great difference a reasoned discussion between sensible people and just reporting no-sense as though it was sensible.
