News of the World lip syncs

a Michael Jackson News Exclusive!!!

'News Corpse' Re-Animated by Bloggers
Suffering from 'Acute Hyperbol Intoxication'!!

According to the January 10, 2010 edition of the 'News of the World', a British tabloid, it has a 'world exclusive" on publication of death certificates that show Michael Jackson was 'murdered':

MICHAEL Jackson's death certificate rules he WAS murdered, the News of the World can reveal.
We obtained a copy of the document and an amendment to it - that have never been published.

Uhm, not true. Unless you want to be a stickler about things like "our copy has never been published" or "never published with this clerk's signature' or 'never been published with this bit blacked out." Or fill in the <bullshit> here.

The real crime being committed, however, is by all the journalists and bloggers who are at this very moment spreading old news and false credit like some sort of 'I can't believe it's not butter!' plague in articles, blogs, and tweets—including content providers who are selling it, for perhaps the second time, to their paying clients.

The Superficial Hypocrite: I Know You Are But What Is Tiger Woods?

Posted on January 4, 2010

Wang has kept the +$2.7M sale of The Superficial.com to Buzz Media a secret from fans

On December 18, 2009, The Superficial.com tried serious journalism and the result was so embarrassing for them one can only hope they'll never try it again. The writer watched a 2007 video of Tiger Woods where, according to the writer, Tiger makes critical remarks about Michael Vick that proves Tiger is a hypocrite. (ESPN actually replaced originally lead in commentator with a new one prior to 're-releasing' the 2007 interview, and have since replaced the link with an ad. Sorry).

There are so many things wrong with the writer's logic in making his arguments that a separate post is required to deconstruct it. Suffice to say it went something like this:

Bulldog fell in a well.

In trying to get out, Bulldog just made the well deeper.

Tiger told Bulldog how to get out of the well without making it deeper.

One time, a weasel threatened to push Tiger in the well, but Tiger gave it a bone so it didn't.

Therefore, Tiger is a hypocrite.

A Tiger Fallen-from-Grace may not be worthy enough to sell razor blades or consulting services, but can you imagine what he could do for God?

ESPN to Some Guy from Forbes: ‘Be Like, Mike’.

Posted on December 27, 2009

Who the Hell is Mike Miller from Forbes Magazine?

You know why this ESPN story on the Financial Impact of the Tiger Woods Scandal is so credible? Because once in a while the words 'Forbes Magazine' flashes up on the screen. And when you see the name 'Forbes Magazine' you think 'financial stuff.' And then you conclude: 'Wow! This story on the financial impact of the Tiger Woods scandal is obviously a work of real journalistic integrity!'
