U.S. Establishes Ministry of Truth to Combat Fake News

U.S. Establishes Ministry of Truth to Combat Fake News

WASHINGTON – In response to the growing epidemic of “fake news,” President Obama today announced the creation of a new department of the federal government, the Ministry of Truth.

“As a Constitutional scholar, I can assure you that the Founding Fathers of our nation never intended the sacred First Amendment rights of freedom of speech and freedom of the press to apply to websites peddling ‘fake news’. The Founding Fathers well understood the importance of controlling the political narrative,” stated Obama.

“Let me be clear: ‘fake news’ is an enormous problem. So we need a war on fake news like never before. We will work closely with the more established and reliable media companies, including social media, to stamp out the threat that so many independent voices poses to our democracy.” Continue Reading

Glossy News Accused of Balanced, Factually Accurate Reporting

Glossy News Accused of Balanced, Factually Accurate Reporting

The government and media have angrily accused Glossy News of publishing well researched, balanced and factually accurate articles.

‘This is a total disgrace,’ passionately screamed a representative of the National Union of Journalists. ‘Glossy News is respected for its spoof news stories. We expect fake news from its writers. Some of what it’s publishing now is, well, just plain wrong.’ Continue Reading

Glossy News Book Showcase 5: Benjamin Cain’s ‘God Decays’

Howard Rhodes, an NSA cryptanalyst, engineered the zombie apocalypse. So said the President of the United States in his shocking final address to the nation, which served as the American epitaph.

Four years later, the old world is in ruins and is stalked by the living dead.

Many survivors keep journals to record their travails in the hope that their lives still matter. Continue Reading

The Road Ahead! Glossy News on the Up: Let’s All be Part of the Journey! (1/2)

Glossy News was founded by online satire pioneer Brian K. White. Aside from writing many, many articles, and running various sites, Brian also has his own Glossy News 4K Podcast. See his Youtube here.

But we have had so many great writers. I myself joined Glossy News a while back, and worked  my way up. I am soon launching a channel of my own: Runnymede Video Bomb!

This is in construction, but make sure to follow it! (I already have a small number of videos on it). January will include some old classics (such as ‘9/11 Problems Jay-Z Parody’ and ‘Wall Street Interview,’) as well as some never-before-seen treasures!

Anyway: I’ve been editor for a while, and I’ve helping Brian to seek out and cultivate great new talent for our site. Whether it’s fake news satire (good old classical humor, not malicious hoaxes!); or parodies of movies, poems, novels, songs, whatever; or even some thought-provoking news commentary, whether solemnly sober, pleasantly amusing or even flat out hilarious…

Glossy News is where you want to be!

We have some big plans for the year ahead. But what does this really mean? Find out in five minutes, in instalment two of this achingly classy ‘Alternative (Humor) New Year’s Message!’

Book Review: Dan Ariely’s “Predictably Irrational”

He begins by telling a story about The Economist. They offer free options: online only, print only, online and print. Print only and online and print are priced the same. Why would they do this? Because people compare things relatively. Continue Reading
