The media is always looking for the next hottest story that they can break to the news world with and be credited as the hailed heroes who broke the story. Unfortunately, this constant desperation has opened up opportunities for the media to be trolled and fooled. When it comes to breaking the freshest and hottest story in the news, sometimes the news outlets don’t dedicate a lot of time to fact check, let alone check sources and look into the story with great detail before publishing or broadcasting it. This has led to some news stations being publicly shamed and laughed at, while others try to disappear into the shadows and pretend that nothing happened.
This occurrence isn’t a secret, and there have been people who have emerged who are dedicated to trolling the media and their audience. Some have even made careers of it and have created their own news outlets such as The Onion and The Chive. All you need is a convincing story and there’s a good chance that either the media will pick it up and publish it as legitimate (thus doing the work for you), or people will be easily fooled and make your story go viral. The recipe for pulling off a good troll session on the media usually involves a story that makes people angry, sad, or laugh.
Many people who have trolled the media aren’t trying to get famous, but instead they are trying to expose the media for the gullible group of people that they actually are. With the media holding so much authority, there is a growing revolution with people who are simply fed up with it, and will go to whatever measures possible to expose the media and prove that they shouldn’t be worshiped or followed. Another motivation people have for trolling the media is to simply get some publicity out there for a project they’re working on, like a movie or a website. Take a German production company as an example. They told the DPA about a fake suicide attack on a small town in California, and even created fake websites for the town and law enforcement so if the news outlet called, the line went straight to actors who supported the fake story. All of this to support an indie film. As the saying goes, “Any publicity is good publicity.”
Then we also have groups of people who ban together to troll the media. Teenagers in the early nineties did just that when they got the New York Times to publish a fake list of slang words. Then 4Chan convinced the internet that teenagers were huffing raw sewage and calling it “Jenkem.” Again, all fake and for the sake of making the media look foolish.
This video contains ten awesome people who managed to troll the media. Whether their intentions was to expose fraud, get famous, or even get some publicity for a project, you have to give these people credit for pulling the stunts off successfully.
