  1. Thanks for calling attention to Juice Media's brilliant, hilarious Rap News. "The War on Journalism" with WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange is my favorite because I am a big supporter of Assange and Bradley Manning, but I enjoy them all. "Cablegate" and "Osamacide" mine gems out of the failings of the Obama administration.

    The creators see past the smoke and mirrors set up by morally-retarded "world leaders." They don't insult our intelligence with the sort of puerile nonsense that passes for wit and satire in the mainstream media. They are geniuses in the same league as Monty Python. We annoying peasants love them.
