If you turn on TV, all you see's a bunch of "what the fucks"
Dude is dating so and so, blabbering 'bout such and such
And that ain't Jersey Shore, homey, that's the news
And these the same people supposedly telling us the truth
Major news networks spend half of their time on milquetoast reportage (about actual issues) and the rest on gossip (that gets great ratings!)
People think that Jersey Shore is vapid but Lupe considers the media, the “fourth branch” of government/people who should “speak truth to power,” to be just as bad
These bars have an Immortal Technique feel, too
