The Great White Cloud of Noise

The great white cloud of noise.
In today's world of television,
a suspicious smoke was reported.
Professionals are still confused by exactly what it is,
their words are often desperate and haunted, dealing with mental illness.

At least stop and consider,
[talk is cheap, but]
nothing is cheap anymore in absolute terms.

Everyone has an opinion about everything.
It's very easy to get sucked in.
Expert after expert has an opinion.
While credentials and resume are impressive, does that mean you should listen?

Sorting the wheat from the chaff can be a daunting task,
One of the hardest things to do.

[The] story is now murky because of questions.
This is a sign that something may be about to happen,
but no one is sure what it will be.
Analysts are silent.

This type of disconnect has historically ended badly.
