On the Media's Media Scrutiny Theatre!
Saturday, January 14, 2012 - 10:39 AM
Last week, asked Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett of Rifftrax and Mystery Science Theater 3000 for some pointers on the art of riffing in preparation for the launch of the 2012 iteration of our Media Scrutiny Theater. Today, we're proud to announce our inaugural video!
For our first video, we decided to go not with a campaign ad, but an ad made by supporters of Ron Paul. Yes, that's right, it's the controversial "Manchurian Candidate" ad about Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman, a commercial so incendiary, Paul supporters have even suggested it was part of a false-flag campaign by Hunstman's team. Enjoy the video, and, as always, let us know what you think. Bob and Brooke will be adding their commentary to plenty more political campaign videos over the course of this election season.
