Debunking Paintballs and Nudity: Media Scammed

Have I mentioned that I really love that snopes.com exists?

Well, I do. Here, they debunk Hunting for Bambi, which got reported (via Reuters) on CNN!

Chalk the coverage of this non-event publicity stunt to the general shoddiness of the mass media’s brand of “journalism.” Of particular note: this story featured violence and included video of topless women — which as it turns out is a good way to get on television.

The media does not seem to care if they are getting scammed.

Disgusting.
