The Balloon Boy Hoax

It seems the “authorities” are SHOCKED and OUTRAGED that the balloon that supposedly contained a stranded little boy turned out to be a media hoax.

Of course, the “authorities” such as the government and the police love to use the media to hype their various causes. Most of the so-called news is just staged events designed for propaganda purposes (e.g., Obama’s Beer Summit). And the media loves to hype stories that have little actual news value. The mainstream media has become simply an entertainment device. And a runaway balloon with a stranded boy makes for a good story.

So while the whole story was a hoax, it was fun to see the media and the police get punked.
