Niraj told me to post this. I really didn't want to post this, but since he thought it was funny, apparently everyone will think it's funny.

This is a half-true/half-insane biography of Adolph Ochs that I made up for journalism class. There's a lot of journalism inside jokes that will make some people laugh and others cringe. It parodies movies like Shattered Glass and Wayne's World (I guess one makes up for the other).

good!

i liked it but i hate history lessons

Hey!

What's the knock on the New Republic? Foreshame :P Heh, great flash, I had no idea about all of the history behind the NYT. :)

tlgmedia responds:

The reporters design was based on Hayden Christensen as Stephen Glass in the movie Shattered Glass. Stephen Glass was fired from The New Republic after it turned out that he fabricated a whole ton of stories and sources.

In retrospect, we could have easily made the character Jayson Blair.

meh

this was okay, but you have done better flashes... im sure of it... keep up the good job though

This just put a smile on my face, and I got caught

Usually I'm seen as the stone faced girl who doesn't laugh, smile, or even speak with emphasis...in monotone... however that was temporarily
shattered by this intelligent animation. For, a person making a cartoon that is filled with information, and merging that with humor, makes it even more pleasing for me to view. Great job, I hope if you got a grade on this or extra credit, you got an A in your class.
