When You Can't Make The News, Fake The News
And I thought that only Blognonymous faked the news. Oh well...At least when I do it, I have the good sense to label it. As with these (shameless whoring follows, proceed at your own risk):
The Department of Homeland Faith
NSA Bakes Cookies
Disgusted With Politics, The North Magnetic Pole Emigrates
Damn. I was hoping for a pass on this since at least I put creative effort into my own lies. :-) Oh well...
But as I understand it, these VNRs are mostly propoganda made to look like news. So the stations that air them are both lying and lazy! Don't even put in the effort. What a bunch-o-tools.
if you didn't see it or hear it democracy now did the whole program on this. www.democracynow.org.
And they had samples!
Here's a few links, this one from Lautenberg's site, and this one and this one from PR Watch.
Oops! You don't mean that I'll have to stop faking the news?! Arrrrgggghhhh!
