Don't change that URL, because somewhere in this blog is a link to the damnedest thing you've read today. Initially spotted by Game Life's Chris Kohler, this story from Fox affiliate Fox 9 in Minneapolis will challenge everything you think you know about journalism. I get pissed when publications sell coverage to sponsors or bury criticism behind pages and pages of hype, but the author of this piece crosses the line between journalism and high fantasy.

High on mushrooms, that is.

The article is about kids who use their PSPs to download porn through their schools' wireless Internet connections. It's the most assinine thing in the world, but check out these quotes!

"Kids are using a gaming device to access porn out of thin air, even at school Kids like to keep secrets from adults, there's a kind of power that comes from knowing the adults are clueless."

That's the opening paragraph. Never mind the broken grammar and random capitalization - you could be breathing an image of a gang-bang this very second! The story mainly follows Jeff, a young conjurer who "showed his pals how the PSP could magically display images of naked women." Magic people.

The thesis of this story is that parents should be more informed about what they're buying for their children, and that manufacturers should be more up front about the possibilities contained in their products. So if the author thinks parents should be more informed, why does their story claim the PSP creates porn out of thin air by magic?

And what about cell phones? Is Fox 9 so behind the times they don't realize kids can use their phones to download porn without wireless hot spots? They can even use camera phones to make their very own. So thank you, Fox affiliate, for bringing us yesterday's hysteria today.
