Straight from the horse’s ass

I’ve been hearing about Video News Releases (VNRs) for awhile now, but I didn’t know how to get ahold of these fake news items while they’re still fresh, hot, and steaming. Here’s one source: USDA’s Broadcast Media & Technology Center.

VNRs are distributed to TV stations, some of which broadcast them as news without the disclaimer that they were produced by the federal government. Your tax dollars paid for this propaganda, you might as well enjoy it!

    Mo! Holy Khrap!! You’ve Bloggified Surly! And you’ve been doing it since… uh… at least…. March 8, 2001?? Wait a minute, that can’t be possible — I remember reading Surly Robot long since then. You’ve somehow managed to reinvent – repackage the past! Orwell! Orwell!! Come see what Mo did! No wonder ya never have time to write me a long, sincere diary-log, in long-hand, on blue-lined (college-ruled is okay) composition paper. (snif)

    Just for that — I’m staying in Taiwan One Extra Day! So there!

    Welcome back, Krantoor! Be aware, though, that my plans to corrupt the Internet have just begun. Soon, no one will be able to distinguish the difference between fact and opinion… then the Webernet will be mine!
