Journalistic Pleas(e)

I don’t understand, don’t see how it’s come to this
Even though I’m not a fan of much they do 
They haven’t stepped up.  Haven’t raised their game at all.
So we have to raise our challenges anew

Our friendly mainstream media, whatever that may mean
Accept lies from MPs in place of facts
Instead of going back the next time that they have a chance  
And saying – here you lied, will you retract

Make sure there’s a consequence for not speaking the truth
And call them out as liars in your organ
And give me journalism I can hold in high esteem
So I’m not sat here applauding Piers Morgan
