By the pricking of my thumbs, Something wicked this way comes

Paul over at Conspiraloon HQ has just put together a useful and comprehensive style guide to recreating the David Icke cosmic vibe on your own web pages




Unfortunately, as Paul himself admits, the mainstream media is already starting to copy the distinctive and attractive Conspiraloon
look




Though the classier newspapers are still presenting their rabid, warmongering bullcrap in their traditional, more high brow format




And this week’s competition for all those non Conspiraloons
out there – Complete the following statement in 100 words or less:

‘I believe that the mainstream media is not preparing public opinion for another war of aggression with the aid of lies and bullshit because…’

Non conspiratorial explanations for the apparently co-ordinated nature of the media campaign and the fact that no journalists appear to remember how they were fooled (sic.) before the invasion of Iraq will earn particularly high marks

version 2 has a beautiful, hysterical crescendo to it.

The power of presentation, gifted to us like fire from prometheus

...the media, like the very state itself, is there to serve the best interests of the people at every turn. Luckily for us all they have stumbled across yet another of the 'Greatest Threats to our Lives of Oppression As We Know It'™ and are doing their god-given public duty to save us from it!

they're normal people,just like us, reflecting our common hopes and fears. Not deluded, vainglorious cunts.

as news organisations they have nothing to gain from switching to double shifts at double pay (in order to better [mis]'inform' the public) with expense paid dinners...probably with beer thrown in
