Dave Chappelle (2003) "Asteroid is Black president's fault." FOX News (2013) "Meteor is a plot

by Barack Obama to prove that climate change is real?"

And Chapelle thought he was making an outlandish joke that was so absurd that people would laugh.

5. We are living in an era when sarcasm and irony are dying.

Neither can exist when real life is more outrageous & absurd than we can imagine.

14. We live in a world made by TV

It's like Karl Rove said, we make our own reality, such as it is.

10. Fox headlines is a fake, but this is what a Russian politician said.

They have their own Sarah Palin.
http://www.independent.ie/world-news/europe/russian-meteor-strike-was-us-weapons-test-claims-russian-politician-29078059.html

In language echoing that of the Cold War, nationalist Russian lawmaker Vladimir Zhirinovsky, said: "Those were not meteorites, it was Americans testing their new weapons.

"John Kerry wanted to warn (Russia’s Foreign Minister) Lavrov on Monday, he was looking for Lavrov, and Lavrov was on a trip.

"He meant to warn Lavrov about a provocation against Russia."

12. One more indication that Fox is NOT news, it's entertainment.

Doesn't matter which headline is real and which one isn't, Fox News has become a joke.

17. Actually, he launched a secret "asteroid drone" to divert its course.

 

He screwed up though. It was supposed to hit the WBC complex in Kansas and was just a wee bit off course when it slammed into Russia.
