I watched "CBC National" one night in a hotel in New Brunswick. CBC is right up there with Foxhole News, but I just wasn't expecting it to be quite that bad, so it was a bit of a shock.

Story behind the song
I watched "CBC National" one night in a hotel in New Brunswick. It was such outrageous propaganda, I had to write a song about that one evening's newscast. CBC is right up there with Foxhole News, but I just wasn't expecting it to be quite that bad, so it was a bit of a shock.
Lyrics
Evening News David Rovics The cities are full of criminals And all of them are Black They'll shoot you for your shoes Or to get a little crack But the police are protecting us Locking up these thugs Making us all safer By being tough on drugs There was a truck bomb in Baghdad Blew up the UN These fanatics do not have a care For innocent women and men They don't like civilization It's just destruction that they crave There is no rhyme or reason For the way that they behave (Chorus) It's hard to believe But I know it's true I saw it on the evening news There's a war on in Colombia And it's all about cocaine And the FARC is running drugs From Mexico to Maine It's an ugly situation But soon it will be whipped We just need to send along More helicopter gunships (Chorus) There was a suicide bomber in Jerusalem Blew himself up on a bus He was a funny-looking Muslim Not like one of us He didn't like the Jews And he says that God is great Don't know what his problem is He's just so full of hate (Chorus) Evil men are plotting To blow up Washington, DC 'Cause they don't like freedom And democracy They're fans of the Dark Ages They are all around They're marching from the desert sand And coming to your town (Chorus) Created August, 2003 Copyright David Rovics 2003, all rights reserved
