Drew Curtis is the "father" of fark.com: a website where visitors submit links to news items found around the Internet and provide a witty tagline - Curtis and his compatriots winnow through the submissions and pick the best/funniest ones to post. This site is perhaps only second to The Daily Show as being both a source for actually getting one's news as well as making fun of how Mass Media covers the news.

This book provides a detailed, amusing and yet somehow depressing look at how Mass Media desperately tries to fill the 24/7 news cycle... whether there's anything newsworthy going on or not.
