“Attention is wealth, in an age of mass media.”
Science-fiction author Bruce Sterling wrote those words in “We See Things Differently,” published in 1992’s Globalhead which I just happened to be reading yesterday; meanwhile, a topic of societal non-fiction was Michael Sam’s self-outing as a gay (and Black – gasp!) football player destined to play in the NFL.
Ironically, Sterling’s “fiction” is blatantly reflected in whiplash comments by the Republican right’s base.

Life imitates Fiction:
It’s because he’s an attention-whore, I mean just look at him, he’s on TEE VEE:
When one interview = “doing the big media circus”:
He’s black see. So that means he’s from “the HOOD” and… something. I guess “AP” means Associated Press? I’m confused:
Sandra is an Idiot:
It’s a media conspiracy:
Again, it’s actually because Michael Sam’s not that good of a player, but he understands the media’s role in crafting bloated contracts worth millions of free-economy dollars:
And if he doesn’t make millions with the aide of the liberal-media money-making machine, it’s actually because of your phobias:
Or better yet, the media conspiracy wants to destroy Football:
Still better yet, use him as their Gay Tool:
Sadly, Michael Sam is past the point of no return, after watching so much porn (he was such a handsome man before he contracted “the gay” from sex-on-screen):
Speaking of gayvision, blame Glee and X-Factor:
While “wedge politics” were popularized by Republicans, blame someone else for inventing “the gay” issues:
And of course, when in doubt, blame Obama:
an instant classic:
