Breaking Stories from the Onion News Network






Cheers to anon for those

I'm posting links to these vids partly because I think they're funny but mostly to illustrate how people are jerked off with bullshit even by outfits which pretend to be hip, well-informed and a little bit subversive (the emphasis being on the little)

For example, the first video about Diebold machines leaking the presidential election results early subliminally communicates the following...

  • Hillary Clinton is not in with the 'Shadowy Overlords'
  • There actually is a difference between Republican and Democratic Presidential candidates which requires election results to be rigged in the first place
  • The influence of the 'Shadowy Overlords' only stretches back as far as Eisenhower

The second video is also pretty funny but the hidden payload is a subliminal confirmation that all the hundreds (thousands) of people identified by the US government as terrorists who've been killed since 2001 really were all terrorists. Hmmm...

cf. The Daily Show's Jon Stewart - the King of Truthiness Comedy Gatekeeping
