Movies cover a bell curve for truth.
Documentaries are supposed to be an accurate cinematic
report on the real world.
Some films are accurate representations of real events.
Some films based on a true story sex up the script a bit to sell more tickets.
Some films distort things completely.
Other films such as Star Wars are complete fantasy.
American journalism has gone the "Star Wars" route.
How phony would photos of the World's Laziest Journalist cutting brush on the WLJ ranch in the Berkeley Area be? Why then did "journalists" sit silently by when President Tex, who was surrounded by Secret Service agents, posed for a few staged pictures and then the "newsmen" let the world think that a man who was surrounded by good guys with guns and had someone standing nearby with "the nuclear football," would not hire some local trabajadors to do the work? Hogwash! It was a game of political spin and the Journalists were accessories to the deception.
The 2000 and 2004 Elections were both stolen, but suddenly and magically, after 2006 the unhackable electronic voting machines become completely beyond the capabilities of the foreign hackers who have been in the news lately and reverted to producing reliable results. Stories reported by Brad Friedman indicate that the American people are being scammed by the assurances that the machines are unhackable but facts are now extinct and irrelevant for use in any debate with conservatives.
Some time back when election official in Washington D. C. challenged hackers to take their best shot at their new voting machines, a team from U of Michigan reported that while they were hacked into the machines they noticed that teams from Iran and China were also getting in there and taking a look around.
If the World's Laziest Journalist can post the des key number for the electronic voting machines ( F2654hD4 ) what makes the citizens, both liberal and conservative, so certain that hackers both foreign and domestic can't crack the "unhackable" electronic voting machines?
Do you suppose that those hackers had anything to do with the light failure at the Supebowl?
The work crew at the Amalgamated Conspiracy Theory Factory (ACTF) will have to be furloughed because of austerity budget measures and so they would be better off concocting some "pitches" to take to Hollywood and maybe try to get an agent who appreciates a good imagination and a command of current events.
If the guys in white smocks at the ACTF just want to kick back and take life easy (as their boss already assumes they are doing) they should just try to become Republican Congressmen. According to a highly classified ACTF report, here is a summary of a Republican Congressman's weekly schedule: Tuesday morning call in filibuster holds, ring out, and go off to their girlfriends' apartment to start the weekend.
Hangfire! That sounds good to the World's Laziest Journalist, too. Flo of Progressive Insurance has 5 million friends on Facebook. How can we get her to "share" a link to one of our columns? If we could become a Republican Congressional representative we'd only need a few dozen good friends on K Street to feel appreciated.
