Ammunition (media training)

in full media glory 
a chance to tell 
one side of the story

know your audience
be careful not to offend
coworkers and others
are depending on you

lean a bit or a bit more
completely perhaps
to the left to the right

depending on the situation
fence-sitting neutrality
sure is alright

an interview you agreed to
answer the questions
if you please

however
what you have to say
although referenceable
possibly reprehensible
fact-backed
scaffolding
upholding the truth
could also be
career-ending 
for you

protect yourself
coworkers 
and 
the house too

remember 
choose words
wisely
load language

keep even the best of them 
guessing 
with veils of vagueness
confound 
with circular reasoning

stick it 
ad hominem (to the man)
based on bias
inconsistency and or
psychology

attack
for them to forget
the validity of the 
argument

for example:
the arguer's argument
cannot be true 
if
their mental state
is in question
nobody cares
according to who
and neither should you

know
all the things
you can and cannot do
do not 
let the media 
and their witless audience
demand the truth from you
