Public service announcement re: Clickhole

the-war-outsideourdoor says: If you’re acting like an idiot and making a scene, of course they are going to kick you out. Good riddance, idiot.

Great ad campaign by PBS but I’m pretty sure they just created all the new fall programming for TLC.

NY PBS Creates Ads With Fake Reality Shows | EW

Classic problem of actuality outrunning satire, the dilemma of our age really

Today in satire that’s so on point that we’re gonna probably see these shows.

An amusing consequence of state-controlled media: In countries with a closed press, satire, by definition, doesn’t exist, and so when satirical pieces leak over from other countries, they’re often interpreted as real news. In other words, Iranians have more of an excuse for mistaking The Onion for reality than these people do. source

Protip: Free Wood Post is a satire site and this article isn’t real
Hey, just a tip: If you see this link about Anonymous and Romney’s tax returns floating around the ether, it’s not real. In fact, a Forbes writer even spent some time debunking the idea around the article, while noting the source’s satirical nature. Free Wood Post is a satire site that has published a number of realish-sounding things that have surfaced over the past few months. And people keep getting fooled, not reading deep enough into the article to see that there are obvious jokes in the article — a deduction from “Toupee Creators Unlimited,” for example. Unfortunately for us (and unlike The Onion), the things sound somewhat feasible on their face, and readers totally skip over the “Satire Disclaimer” on every page of the site. If someone sends you this link, send them this link back.

Surprisingly, this isn’t an Occupy post: Do you think Ryan Gosling was robbed of People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” title this year? Well, these protesters do, too. Our pals at BuzzFeed started a whole petition to promote Gosling to his rightful place. Today, protesters met outside of People’s NY HQ with chants, signs and masks. We are the 99%, indeed. source
