Get ready to experience the noble tradition of journalist.
America recently ranked 17th in the world for Freedom of The Press. The news media is a corporate entity - and like most corporations, they lie to you.



Rated 4 / 5 stars

very true

don't belive the shit that the media feeds you. this wasn't so good graphics-wise, but the concept behind it was great. next time you should do something else that exposes secrecy, like Bush's idiocy, or whats going on behind the oval office doors.

this makes newgrounds users think for a change.

Ultra-B, you're wrong

George bush IS an idiot AND a liar! I don't know why would you say that he's not? You know it's a lie if you do... well anyway nice "game" but pretty poor graphics


Rated 3 / 5 stars

it was ok, but...

I just didn't like the fact that you made fun of the presedent, i know that marshmellow is funny, but he isn't an idiot, you should learn some respect. Also, why were there clips from CNN at the end? Don't you know that it realy stands for Communist News Network?! you may say the C stands for cable, but i get CNN, and I aint got cable! So you can go ahead and take your liberal opinions and shove up your ass!

That was really good. I thought it would've been interesting if the game had multiple paths, where you can either end up like a fat cat mainstream journalist or a "fringe" journalist who never holds the punches and becomes demonized by the corporate media. Despite the lack of real choixes, it was an excellent game, I loved the names like "Stacy Quo" and the guy whose name sounded like Ari Fleishcer (sp?), and the way you can see "Virtual Journalist"'s conciences collapsing just by looking at his face throughout the game. And the movie at the end, absolutely excellent. This is the second game I've played that gets a real world point across, and the first I've played that intertwines that point with the game play.

Definitely an inspiration, and I can only hope to make a game like this one that handles the issues as well as you have.
