MoveOn admits they hacked Fox News


About 300.000 of you have seen the video of the news reader on the Fox News building in New York being hacked with messages not exactly of the type Fox usually fills the airways with. It”s shot in a shaky hand held spontaneous kind of way.

The maker of the video seems as shocked as the viewer about what they are watching. Watch it yourself:

It turns out – this was a pretty clever pre-campaign launch stunt by the campaign group MoveOn which on June 23rd, alongside former White House adviser Van Jones and The Roots, are launching what organizers are calling “Rebuild the Dream,” an effort to move the political conversation away from austerity and towards job creation.

Clever use of online media – let”s hope they have some more tricks up their sleeves as the campaign get”s rolling properly. Something to look out for.

Larry Flynt: Why I Am Donating $50,000 to WikiLeaks’ Defense Fund


Let’s get something straight: Julian Assange is a journalist. You can argue that he is not practicing journalism the way you think it should be practiced — releasing classified U.S. State Department documents — but he’s a journalist nonetheless. And for many of us he’s a hero.

I’m sick and tired of the politicians and political pundits treating this man as if he were a criminal. If WikiLeaks had existed in 2003 when George W. Bush was ginning up the war in Iraq, America might not be in the horrendous situation it is today, with our troops fighting in three countries (counting Pakistan) and the consequent cost in blood and dollars.

WATCH: Jack Black turns 6 year old girl into Glenn Beck clone


Jack Black is Nathan Spewman, “Professional Mis-Informant.” Spewman infiltrates dangerous groups like book clubs and yoga classes (“Satanic Cults”) to spread Right Wing lies. Now he is getting them young, disguised as a child with, “Enlarge-itis,” which” totally sucks,” and spreading his misinformation to a classroom of children.
– Video Below –

The teacher, America Ferrara, thinks something is out of place and Spewman’s days may be numbered. Our hero trains a new Mis-Informant, Bethany (6 year old, Caitlin Carmichael) who excels — the student has become the master.

Episode 1 is giggle worthy, but the second installment is brilliant as Bethany steals the chalk and video by demanding “Enough” be spelled with an “F.” In true Beckian fashion, she hops up to the chalkboard and shows that the “G-H” in the word is code for “God Haters,” or worse,”Good Health…Health Care!” Real Americans spell “Enough” with an “F” — for Freedom.

It’s amazing how even at her full 6 year old, fact-denying best, Bethany still does not sound half as nutty as Uncle Glenn. Sarcasm is an impressive tool against the Crazy Right. It puts their incoherent babbling on a mirror that projects right back at them. To put it another way, I love Jon Stewart and prefer the Daily Show, but Colbert may be doing a more vital and brilliant service for the country by deadpanning the Conservatives each night on his show.
