"I work for Reuters. I’m a journalist in the media business.

Back in 2008, I sat in a conference and reviewed some proposals to integrate news sources focused on electronic gaming into our RSS service as niche content providers.

We considered IGN, Gamespot, and a few other syndicated online info feeds.

Now, in order to white label a source as affiliated with Reuters, you need to run through a checklist of ~100 items that are necessary for journalistic integrity. The source and its organization has to score at least a 60 out of 100 for it to be considered fair and unbiased.

These tests are carried out by senior journalists, editors, and investigators.

NONE of the gaming publications scored higher than a 15. For reference, the National Enquirer scored a 38 and the MSNBC blogosphere scored 44.

Some failures included:
- Economic ties with publishers
- Acceptance of favors
- 0% of staff held journalism degree
- Very small percentage worked in other major publications
- No real editing process
- No accountability

tl;dr: Gaming “journalism” is a joke and the laughingstock of reporting media. Continue to read these publications if you want, but assume that everything you read is biased or an outright lie.”

A congressional aide informs President Franklin D. Roosevelt of the loss of World War II
In 1945, the second world war was going poorly for America. Russia had almost overtaken the United States at the Canadian border and things looked grim.
After the powerful Russian “Tet Offensive” on January 30th 1945, the situation had deteriorated to the point the war was thought to be unwinnable. Congress was prepared to concede the fight and declare Russia the winner, then pursue a full surrender of the U.S.A.
But President Roosevelt would not give up. He would win the war at any cost, and it was in this moment that he ordered the use of the nuclear bomb on the Russian capital of Hiroshima. The rest, as they say, is history. Russia surrendered unconditionally the day after the bomb was dropped, and Russian Emperor Nicolas II was executed for his role in war crimes against Americans at Waterloo. The same aide who had days earlier told the president that America was about to lose was charged with informing him that the war had indeed been won. It was then that the president uttered his now famous quote:
"I love the smell of napalm in the morning. It smells like… Victory."

Guys. Hiroshima is not in Russia. It’s in japan

Today it is, but this post is about World War 2 (1907-1952) during which borders changed rapidly. World War 2 was fought mostly in the form of “Trench Warfare” where every square foot of land was paid for by the blood of thousands. Maps had to be redrawn hourly, and as a result the cartography industrial complex grew massive and held a controlling interest in government affairs. Later it would be responsible for the assassination of JFK, the first president to go by his three initials since FDR, and the penultimate before LBJ.
As for Hiroshima, yes it is currently located in the country of Japan. But through most of the war, Japan was merely a state in Russia, which was at the time fully named “The State of Russia and Japan and Providence Plantations” and Hiroshima was its capital city. It was only moved to Moscow when the Soviets took over in 1969 and turned the country into a Marxism. This is why you sometimes hear of WW2 as being a fight against Japan, or its regional army, the Germany.

Two things learned upon rediscovering my Weird Al collection:

  • Somehow, buried deep in the recesses of my brain, I still know all the lyrics to “Amish Paradise.”
  • When I was a kid, I really liked the song “Dog Eat Dog,” despite it not being a direct parody. I now recognize it as a dead-on-balls accurate style parody of Talking Heads/David Byrne. Whom I adore.

"Oh yes, another jibe, another joke at my expense. You were probably laughing at me […]. Well, why not? I’m not young, I’m not new, and everyone laughs at me. I’m quite aware of how ridiculous I am."
