As usual, we are looking for propaganda promoted throughout the web when it involves politics and political personalities. We are especially interested in articles that are so blatantly sexist as this one is.
In this episode, the video (at the end of this article) plays on the fact that many of us like to think of ourselves as smarter than politicians and other accomplished individuals. This video, concocted to convey the stupidity of the second favorite target of the HuffingtonPost, Sarah Palin, is no surprise. Huffington jumped on the video with this article.
The people who presented this video made it for those turkeys among us that fall for this sort of thing. And apparently there are many of us. It got over 4000 DIGGs!!
First of all, how many of you are having turkey this Thanksgiving? The fact is she is supposedly doing an interview at a Turkey farm. Do the people that endorse such an article think the turkey gets grown from stem cells taken from aborted fetuses and then get delivered to their grocer’s shelves?
The Huff implies Sarah is stupid for being on the farm, but this is a yearly event nationwide for most governors and even the President. They imply that Sarah is stupid for being on the farm while they proceed with normal activities that happen every day, all day. And this is the busiest season for all turkey farms.
There is even a great chance the video isn’t even real, but even if this footage is real, what would you do half way through an interview if you were focused on the interview and some activity you were not privy to was going on behind you. There are tons of blooper reels of news articles from farms the news people weren’t aware of until after the take.
Finally, and most important, how does anyone even know the editor of this video delivered an actual rendering to YouTube? You can edit any video you want now. You can place any background behind any scene. With enough work, people have posted landings of UFO’s on YouTube that people actually believed were real when first posted.
This was all manipulation to take a cheap shot and have a laugh at Sarah’s expense.
Sarah is the most popular celebrity of this entire election. Put up a link to Sarah in a bathing suit (edited of course, because no one actually has one), Sarah hunting in a bikini (get out your Adobe Photoshop) or say you have pics of Sarah in the nude and you can get millions of DIGGs. Place any article up on your blog and use Sarah’s name and the hits are unimaginable. Make her look stupid or make fun of her and that doubles your hit rate.
Find any interest article you can think of, real or contrived about Sarah, and you have a winner. This was done for one reason, to suck the public in with a sexist farce.
The question becomes, is it DIGGnified, or is it FABBricated?
