Girl Dies of Heart Attack, Mainstream Media Blames Xbox 360

Posted on Thursday, July 28 @ 13:13:40 Eastern by


If I knew the Xbox 360 had this much influence, I would have sneaked one to Osama Bin Laden.

First, the lie: 13-year-old Anna-Lee Kehoe was "engrossed in her Xbox game" (because one key distinction of mainstream media is not knowing the difference between the Xbox and Xbox 360) when she died. No, actually she stood up and then walked to the bathroom and then called her mother to say she couldn't breathe and then she collapsed.

Okay, but it must be because the infernal Xbox was sending signals of death, right? No, Anna-Lee just had asthma. Well, then the devil Xbox made her so angry or frustrated that she had an asthma attack, correct? Err, that has much merit as saying she died from thinking about that awesome shoe sale at the mall. That's right, she died from summer clearances.

It's just another stupid mainstream story held together by fear-mongering that's become cliché and numb at this point. It's fishing for hits and journalists, who are generally intelligent, know it. Worse, it's exploiting the fact that this girl died from a medical condition. It's sickening, really. I'm not even going to link to the source article.

Because people die due to bad journalism... hey, at least there's a motive.
