PKD-esque Post-911 Surreality Satire Hoax News Matrix

Postby elfismiles » Tue Jun 10, 2014 9:43 am

Alright, something Jack said really resonated with my own recent experience: the sudden up-tick in spook / satire articles flooding the net that are catching even the best of us:

It's getting ridiculous with all these hoaxes, combined with my apparent encroaching senility! All these dumbfucks be proud of making clickbait out of fake news stories presented in quasi-plausible, non-humorous style. I've fallen for a couple in the past week, whereas I almost never did before. Sigh. There was one from the Portland Intelligencer the other day, claiming to link to the promised Greenwald "NSA list" story. It instead went to the PI's Facebook page, so that you could "like" it. This is morally equivalent to spam, or worse really, and I will remember & resent this publication henceforth for wasting my time!


Snopes is still one of the best resources for some of this stuff.

But as an example ... in the past week I've had multiple FB friends post links to National Report dot net ... not realizing that it is a satire / spoof news site. One article in particular caught my attention because it linked to a "seemingly real" science org site but upon closer examination, that science site is itself a spoof site:

Study Finds 1 in 3 Americans Have Been Implanted With RFID Chips: Most Unaware
http://nationalreport.net/study-finds-1 ... s-unaware/

Analysis of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Chip Prevalence in 3 Discrete United States Populations
John T. Brugle, Ph.D and Mary Franz, Ph.D, M.P.H.
Wyoming Institute of Technology, Human Studies Division
ePUB Ahead of Print
http://witscience.org/analysis-of-radio ... pulations/

I think that dynamic duo of sites may have been the one behind the Solar Power Drains the Sun meme:

Solar Panels Drain the Sun’s Energy, Experts Say
http://nationalreport.net/solar-panels- ... perts-say/

They again, invoke the Wyoming Institute of Technology as the source of the "science."

So perhaps this thread can serve as an info dump for such satire sites and the spread of certain "disinfo campaigns".

Jack's example is another good one:

Charles Manson Granted Parole
Posted on June 4, 2014 by Aaron Smith in Headlines, World
http://empirenews.net/charles-manson-granted-parole/

Parole Call
Claim: Charles Manson has been granted parole and will be released from prison.

http://www.snopes.com/politics/satire/mansonparole.asp

Now, I'm not sure if we should separate such spoof sites from vaguely related "real news" site incidents where they msm get the news wrong like with this:

A Computer Program Has Passed the Turing Test For the First Time
http://gizmodo.com/this-is-the-first-co ... 1587780232

No, A 'Supercomputer' Did NOT Pass The Turing Test For The First Time And Everyone Should Know Better

Good way of putting it. Faked Obama certificate, shooting events=hoax, vaccinations=evil, climate change=hoax, everything is a "false flag". I almost want to permanently turn in my "conspiracy theorist" card

One is not amused! Internet hoaxer posts video of naked man 'escaping Buckingham Palace bedroom window during the Changing of the Guard'

A video on the internet claims to show a naked man in Buckingham Palace
The man appears to be climbing down from a window using a bed sheet
The drama happens during the middle of Changing of the Guard
After a few feet, the man plummets from his improvised climbing rope
Buckingham Palace said they do not wish to comment on the video

No, no, you can't give up your card 8-bit, how else would you be able to poison the well of deep politics without this CIA contrived thought stopper phrase. I mean, you're not that smart and 'the Saudis did it, the Saudis did it', is never going to take anyone very far on its own.

Besides which anyone can see that you are an arse licker for the dominant narrative.

Lick away bro. :jumping:

Yeah, Sounder. Lame. No need for that.

That is your opinion and I have no problem with it, but when someone puts out Bernasian style conformity signals I am inclined to say something.

Fucking Hoax, -indeed, the illusions go nowhere.

I honestly read it different than you I suppose. Since I know where 8bit is coming from, the tell there was "I might as well turn in my conspiracy card" as in this shit comes in waves. Everything has to equal "=" something else and all of it false.

Yes, of course. But try PMing. Save all of us your internal strife with another, please.

I don't think Sounder should have a week off. I think this was handled and I don't think that anyone was in the wrong. It's not my call. But don't cut off Sounder from RI for a week.

Sounder was in the wrong. It's right there in plain text. This is not the first time, either.

As a side note, I think it is a good idea to make this thread a dump for those satire/hoax articles, particularly the convincing ones.

Just discovered today: THENEWSNERD.COM - it presumes to be a "satirical" news site, but the news they give is just simply false information with no humor or indication that it is fake.
