Surfing the apocalypse

12th September 2002

The Guerrilla News Network: S-11 Redux: (Channel) Surfing the Apocalypse.

So, in the face of our media’s shameless propaganda campaign, we have taken it upon ourselves to intuit what the intentions and goals of this war truly are. In what is surely a departure from our traditional NewsVideo format, GNN presents S-11 Redux: (Channel) Surfing the Apocalypse. Culled from over 20 hours of television footage recorded over a one month period and across 13 networks, S-11 Redux is a sound-bite blitzkrieg that challenges the messages we have been fed from our mainstream media and the government it serves. Be warned—this video moves quickly and will require at least two viewings to digest its full impact. You may never be able to look at the coverage of S-11 and its post-impact coverage the same way, ever again.

Well worth the download. I particularly enjoyed the George Bush section, accompanied by Ukulele.
