In Jest: How NY Post, Fox News, New York Times write OWS headlines

Jest
Wonder how The New York Times and New York Post come up with such different takes on Occupy Wall Street? Jest, part of the CollegeHumor network of websites, has your answer. Here are a few of the headlines in the video below:

  • The New York Times: “Occupy Wall Street Protests Gain Steam”
  • New York Post: “No-rest protest makes bankers bonkers” (discarded for an even more ridiculous one)
  • Fox News: “Obama ruins economy, inspires shantytowns”

    We should start our own network making jokes about Fox News, Rupert Murdoch, the scandal in his British media empire, his testimony to the British Parliament and his “fair and balanced” news presentation on the Pravda of the Republican Party. Then see who will laugh.
