News Flash – Onion VS CNN

Washington, DC:  The Leek News Service has learned that the “fake news” service, The Onion, has filed a federal lawsuit against CNN for infringement on their long-standing fake news practice.  The lawsuit alleges that CNN has violated The Onion’s news genre of fake news by continually spreading fake news.  “CNN’s continued use of fake news in its broadcasts is a clear infringement on our schtick” offered an unnamed Onion source.  “CNN’s fake news has damaged our ability to write our fake news and makes it hard for our readers to really know which of our stories are fake.”

Flow – Go With It Lame Stream Media

It started as a relatively modest groundswell as average citizen awoke to the path politicians were forcing us down.  The groundswell was followed by a trickle as more folks got engaged and even the main stream media started to actually report rather than cheer on the Obama White House.

The groundswell and trickle has lead to a flow!

The first example is the Daily Show’s Jon Stewart.  Jon is a liberal stalwart who generally leans severely left while occasionally getting it “right.”  While the rest of the lame stream media ignored the Climategate scandal, Stewart made this broadcast.  This must have been a shock to Stewarts audience.  Ordinarily I would embed the video here, but it is no longer available on YouTube.  This link will take you to the clip.
