Kay: We’re gonna check the hot sheets.
Jay: THESE are the hot sheets?
Kay: Best investigative reporting on the planet. But go ahead, read the New York Times if you want. They get lucky sometimes.
So let’s see what journalistic sources r/conspiracy relies on for THE TRUTH.
The most cited news source in the week’s top 25 submissions (excluding text posts, which were all rants about r/WorldNews anyway) are:
IMGUR. Nine submissions, including:
- Two Imgur albums of images where arrows are pointed at random things in images of the Boston bombing, somehow proving it’s a conspiracy. One of these albums is thirty-seven images long.
- Uncited quotes from famous people.
- Two images of the Gaza bombing that killed those four teenagers. You “won’t see this on MSM news”, the title promises.
I first heard about this story when it was discussed on MSNBCIT WAS FIRST REPORTED BY NBC. Notably, there are many news stories on this event one could link to instead of contextless images – but citing real news wouldn’t help you PROVE that the LAMESTREAM MEDIA is keeping it all secret.
- A uncited political cartoon
- And the week’s top submission, a quote from Joe Rogan. The favorite of TOP MINDS everywhere!
REAL NEWS. Seven submissions, including:
- A Chicago Sun-Times story about a poll.
- A Rolling Stone article on price-fixing that opens by apologizing to conspiracy theorists
- Business Insider
- Two Huffington Post articles, including one quoting noted political expert Eddie Vedder.
- Raw Story
ACTIVIST SITES. Two submissions from Avaaz.org and Storyofstuff.org.
TWO WEBSITES FOR VETERANS.
AND THOSE RANDOM WEBSITES YOU SEE NOWHERE ELSE BUT R/CONSPIRACY
“The Free Thought Project”.
“Police State USA” (which seems to report on police brutality, mainly)
AND FINALLY, the latest Weird Al video.
What have we learned today?
The Guardian and BBC are unreliable, but you can always trust LIBERTY BLITZKREIG; screencap news stories you see to share on Imgur instead of linking, so that you can claim no one in the LAMESTREAM MEDIA is covering the story; even conspiracy theorists like Weird Al.
