All that comes to my mind is the song called Slime By Frank Zappa:

I am gross and perverted
Im obsessed n deranged
I have existed for years
But very little had changed
I am the tool of the government
And industry too
For I am destined to rule
And regulate you

I may be vile and pernicious
But you can't look away
I make you think Im delicious
With the stuff that I say
I am the best you can get
Have you guessed me yet?
I am the slime oozin out
From your tv set

Great Job :D fav'd

THANK YOU! Jesus chirist (forgive me)Thank you!This is all any media does anymore and thier fear tactics actually make it harder to take anything even catastorphic seriously and some people are even cynical about any kind of news true or blown out of proportion.

They thrive on fear. SEND THEM A MESSAGE, TURN OFF THE TELEVISION!!! If know one watches, then they go under!

over here we have an australian comedy show (chasers war on everything) who have a segment dedicated to "what you missed out on fox" comparing the ABC news to fox. is quite a laugh :)

I like the War of theWorlds look it has, awesome drawing.

Boy I've felt that before. Wild imagery, and it's all topped with a cute little demented smily-head. And are the twinkles in the sky supposed to be crosses?

It's funny, I read a Newsweek article just yesterday about fear's use in politics. One of the major points it made was that yes, fear is a good political tool, but TOO much fear without showing a light at the end of the tunnel can end you. Also found it interesting that fear is basically an aid to survival; if one caveman doesn't fear what's rustling in the bushes, and another just goes for it, who do you think survives to evolve?

Finally people can see what a propaganda terror machine looks like! Everybody must help fight the war on terror by freaking out and focusing on everything BUT what is important. Rrrrrright.

Be careful with this. The levels of symbolism and contemporary allusion are high enough to make an excitable art critic catch fire.

Very nicely done. Good concept. The fact that the media turns tradgedies into stories so they can make money, and just the fact that theres never anything "good" in the news as in like... friendly, not harming, etc. Again, nice work.

It also reminds me of something out of Invader Zim ^_^

Good to see you're politically and socially aware, the meaning and sarcasm in your drawing makes it soooo cool. And your morbid colourful sketchy style is just amazing!

The world isn't going to get better so let's just stick with more CNN until theres no more news to talk about!

....unless you want your news late and dreadfully inaccurate.

Excellent artwork, love your sarcasm... Great!

i like the concept for this picture. of course both me and my brother are big on news channels. we would rather get news from newspapers and the net.

woah... what fantastic work... you have a great sense of form, and you're style just rocks.

you have this great Jhonen Vasquez meets Voltaire feel that still manages to feel incredibly refreshing and new!

Amazing artwork, I've been trolling through your posts and this is definately one of my faves.

I'm scared too!

You're genius.
Pinocchiopiate Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2007
Wonderfully freakish piece you have here. Seems like nowadays, the news media is turning into an entertainment industry. Of course, whoever said they were paid to tell the truth?

Your piece has unfortunately inspired me to go on a bit of a rant.

If a media outlet tells you that it's fair and balanced, it's complete and total batshit. Here's why:

As we all know, mainstream news media outlets are owned by large corporations: FOX News by FOX Entertainment, CNN by Time Warner, MSNBC by NBC and Microsoft, etc. Because the economy operates on capitalistic principles, these corporations are competing against each other in the marketplace.

Now, since media outlets rely on a number of news sources, they're gonna want to keep up a good reputation with them. If they say unfavorable things about their sources (which will inevitably happen if the media is telling any shred of the truth), then they'll lose access. Of course, that leads to less viewers, which means there's less profit to be made.

Long story short: the truthful outlets get marginalized and pushed out of view, while the blatantly dishonest ones continue to be aired on TV. All because of natural selection in the marketplace.

Sorry about that. Just had to get it out.

May you forever remain unhaunted by dreams of Ted Turner in a Speedo.
