It is said that prostitution is the oldest profession in the world. Then the second-oldest must be politics, and the third oldest the media.
Sleaze ("immoral, sordid, and corrupt behaviour or activities.") is something that emanates from the society we live in. It is the favoured weapon of serpents and demons.
Sleaze comes in many forms, notably as the seven deadly sins: Lust, gluttony, greed, laziness, wrath, envy, pride. Look to the mainstream media, the biggest TV news channels and
the most prominent newspapers, and you will find these sins being promoted on a regular basis.
