It's Not News it's Fark by Drew Curtis
Book DescriptionA hilarious expose on the media gone awry, from the creator of the wildly popular Fark.com. Have you ever noticed certain patterns in the news you see and read each day? Perhaps it s the blatant fear-mongering in the absence of facts on your local six o clock news ( Tsunami could hit the Atlantic any day! Everybody panic!), or the seasonal articles that appear year after year ( Roads will be crowded this holiday season. Thanks, AAA.). It s Not News, It s Fark is Drew Curtis s clever examination of the state of the media today and a hilarious look at the go-to stories mass media uses when there s just not enough hard news to fill a newspaper or a news broadcast. Drew exposes eight stranger-than-fiction media patterns that prove just how little reporting is going on in the world of reporters today. It s Not News, It s Fark examines all the news that was never fit for print in the first place, and promises to have you laughing along the way."

Author Biography - Drew Curtis
Drew Curtis was born, raised, and still lives in scenic Lexington, KY, with his wife and two children but has yet to realize his lifelong dream of owning a herd of fainting goats. He spends his evenings playing soccer, drinking beer and bourbon (preferably not mixed together) and honing his culinary skills, which have improved over the past decade and are pretty decent but still nothing to write home about. Since 1999, he has read nearly 2,000 news articles a day, and is interviewed nationwide several times a week on radio, TV and in print.
