Notes, references etc.


“Frontline” Aussie T V Series

“Gruen Planet” “Gruen Transfer”, “Gruen”
Thoughty2 How the media lies and we don’t notice

Welcome to my parody of “We didn’t start the fire” by Billy Joel.

This one is all about the media and the way they lie, manipulate, distort and distract to get what they want.

There’s a story behind each frame, and you can check out each persons social media profiles for more.

Clips used were from the Australian TV series “Frontline” and Gruen Planet/Transfer

Also I got a lot of inspiration from a video made by Youtuber Thoughty2 about the media and how they lie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgQ79evjylc

Graphs to distort the facts: 4:31

Slander: 9:40

Clickbait: 12:00

Their opinion critics say:  15:58

Verse 1

Their opinion (=) critics say

How they manipulate

Change perspective

Be selective,

oh the more you know

Sow division it’s their mission.

They don’t care of journalism

Demonising, ostracising,

Something most outgrow

Bandwagon, get on,

FOMO phenomenon,

View of a different type?

Call you something they don’t like

Claim to like democracy,

Constant fear mongering

They can lie to our face

and they still will get paid

We didn’t ask for liars!

But they won’t learn if

They keep earning

We didn’t ask for liars!

Lets privatise them

Take back our finances

Verse 2

Changing the order of

Images, Kuleshov

Propaganda, and there’s slander,

Clickbait hoax

Oh man, a Strawman

Activism, framing,

Sound bites, libel.

News hosts are woke

Disagree? – hate speech

No ethics to be seen

What a crock of  shh – that’s banned

They must protect their brands

It’s out of context

Slap it with a ‘fact check’

Bring in race every place

That is what they do best

We didn’t ask for liars!

But they won’t learn if

They keep earning

We didn’t ask for liars!

They are the virus

That’s why they fight us

Verse 3

False flag to distract,

Use of graphs distort the facts

Tell it from just one side

Don’t admit when you lied

Spreading news that is false

like they have no pulse

What you see, they decide

Trying to control your mind

Legacy media

Its Schizophrenia

Keep your view narrow

This is just their M. O.

Sneakily mislead

Link you to a Nazi

Censor and control

They don’t want you to know

We didn’t ask for liars!

But they won’t learn if

They keep earning

We didn’t ask for liars!

Lets shine light on them

When they try and hide it

Verse 4:

Use repetition

Called ad nauseum

Next is guilt by association

They’ll claim superior

news of bacteria

But each person

Makes their decision

Order they suppress

you won’t hear from the press

Studies have come our way

Now believe what we say!

We didn’t ask for liars!

But they won’t learn if

They keep earning

We didn’t ask for liars!

But they’ll keep on churning

It’s quite concerning

Verse 5

Global warming

Used for submission

It’s time to stop

They’re a laughing stock

If you try and speak your mind

They will take you offline

Young boy murdered named Cannon

Why don’t they give a damn?

Demoralise and gaslight

They’ve commited democide

Hypocrites wont admit

When they are full of it

All lives matter, that’s for sure

Something that they won’t explore

They’d prefer to cover war

I can’t take it anymore!

We didn’t ask for liars!

But they won’t learn if

They keep earning

We didn’t ask for liars

You must be discerning

So you don’t get sucked in and in and in…


We didn’t ask for liars!

Lets privatise them

Take back our finances

We didn’t ask for liars,

They are the virus

That’s why they fight us

We didn’t ask for liars!

Lets shine light on them

When they try and hide it

We didn’t ask for liars!

But they’ll keep on churning

It’s quite concerning

We didn’t ask for liars

So if you want to learn, then

You must be discerning
