The sequel: Controversial art exhibit at Walker Art Center found to be controversial again, MPR reports

For the second time in less than a month The Walker Art Center is perhaps again exhibiting controversial art as per an MPR News interpretative report suggests.

This suspiciously odd and seemingly obvious revelation came early yesterday afternoon as more publicity of Walker Art exhit generated local ire and honed activists’ interest–related to said controversial art, and as real news stories slowed down and the weekend came closer. 

A fortnight ago, the infamous “Scaffolds” art instillation dominated the local news cycle, adorned with underwritten ads and emotional subjective language, which prompted a protest and a public deconstruction of the artwork– which essentially became performance art itself, as covered by the media. 

This new “controversy” over controversial art has spurred more invaluable press coverage of The Walker Art Center in local news circles, ostensibly generating more interest in this perhaps controversial art exhibit for weekend visitors. 

In a time when any publicity is good publicity–visibility has value–the idea of controversial art seems completely redudnant yet especially breaking news worthy to this local news media, apparently art has never been controversial before now, ever.  

Theoretically, at any other network, publicity like this would potentially cost considerable weight in advertisement revenues.  However, this controversial art seems to be getting much attention on its own through certain respective media.

Perhaps now we are living in a world where we have to be told our exact feelings or interpretations of art, and what is right and wrong and loved and loathed about said art, as clarified by local news media.

The next question is when will we make art museums and art institutions safe spaces, as to protect posterity from that art which might painfully offend art viewers. The art world needs more uniform standards as to avoid further controversy.

American news media unanimously agrees to write shorter articles saving readers time, triggering the advent of journalism without words

Frogtown, USA —This week an official report of an official study found that most people don’t read the news because it’s too long and takes too much time to read. In hopes to counter lack of readership and lack of attention to everything the mainstream media has decided to make all articles one to two sentences long, maximum.

The decision to make news articles one to two sentences long in their entirety was unanimously agreed upon by American news organizations on Monday eve after finding that no one reads anymore, or takes the news seriously, and this looming fact destroys potential for more advertisement revenue.

In what seems to be the demise of true journalism, a bastion of hope has been burrowed out of thin air in true optimism, from the idea of less is more, perhaps, and this sea change may just be the beginning of novel style of journalism that doesn’t require words at all, merely assumptions by inflection of personal interpretation. Not a far cry from where we are today, when journalism already doesn’t require legitimate sources at all.

To the news that all news articles would be only one to two sentences long, purposeful and sage Millennials rejoiced in having more time to like things on Instagram and craft new Facebook status updates, now instead of reading through articles with details and objective facts the reader could simply fill in the blanks to their liking. Creating a double positive: the story would be easier to read, and easier to digest mentally.

In a time where there isn’t much time in our busy lives, shorter articles will become a more positive experience for the reader, for the writer, and for the entire world in general; journalism with words, thought, and details will become a thing of the distant past. With the official announcement of shorter articles, the American news media is truly on course for a new style of the literary form, a new style of journalism without words.

Yosemite National Park–Alex Honnold has done it once again and attained another impossible feat in the world of serious climbing. After tackling El Capitan, onlookers watched as Honnold effortlessly and breathtakingly free-solo climbed into his van.

Awestruck spectators watching with eyes agape could hardly believe their camera phones at what they were witnessing/recording for Instagram, the professional mountain climber and avid reader stepped up to his white utility van and pulled himself in with absolute ease over the crux of the biscuit, the side door hole.

What was once thought an unbelievable accomplishment for humankind, to climb into a van door without safety ropes and harnesses or parachutes or life jacket has been proved believed, and somewhat realistically attainable by man.

The significance of this epic and monumental ascent is nothing short of the faked moon landing footage, in relation to what Stanley Kubrick had done for the American mentality in the space race and for cinematography in general throughout history, in relation to what Alex Honnold did in his climbing groups zen.

From inside of his van Honnold humbly took questions looking incredibly far down at the world from such a great height as he ate a pop tart and read a book about notes from some 19th century author who lived in some underground. Honnold could only thank his dearest mother.

Fake new about fake news found to be fake news about fake news because of fake news and fake news

In a shocking revelation yesterday an unnamed mainstream media source found that a story about fake news found to be fake news was fake news because of fake news and no one seemed to care.

Unbelievably the mainstream media source did nothing about the compromise of information, not going back on their sponsors promise, not pulling the fake news story.

The ads were in place, the story had to fill the page… one unidentified marketing sales manager at the publication explained, These papers are full of advertisements, they are paid for, they must be seen by a specific demographic…

This discovery of fake news is only one in a veritable rash of papers, the mainstream media seem to be just printing fake news for news when there is no real news simply to carry marketing spots, nothing objective to break for readers to think on.

Such an uncovering has shocked the news industry–and this problem goes back decades–as it limits trust and shows that stories are less important than underwriters and advertiser money. The readers suffer, and we can blame the decline on fake news…

We can only hope at point the news media goes back to what made them important, objective reporting, putting advertisements and sales in the background.  However, in a world where shock sells we can expect to see more and more fake news.

In what turned out to be a shock that could only be something that is not really actually stranger than fiction, while watching Netflix’s House of Card 5th season the world realized that Russia also hacked the election in favor of Will Conway over Francis Underwood in the 2016 election, said Julian Assange.

In the extremely highly anticipated unbelievable inscrutable 5th season of House of Cards, the intense 2016 election was also hacked by Russia operatives and hackers out to destroy the election hopes of democratic nominee Francis J. Underwood, which is facutally tied to the Trump campaign.

The Will Conway victory came as a utter surprise to even Will Conway himself, as he poured his orange juice, readied for the day, and stretched out for a run he could not believe that he was set to win the hotly debated muchly contested presidential campaign trail, followed up by this closely watched election conclusion.

Ostensibly, when asked for a comment about Netflix’s new season of House of Cards, released May 30th on Netflix, unidentified, potentially high-level Russian informants gave no comment as to if they did have a hand in the election, or if they did not have a hand in the

President Trump explaining how he actually didn’t have a part in this.

Underwood/Conway election, unknown and unreliable sources have passionately confirmed.

Accordingly, a proverbial “witch hunt” is in store for the next 4 years, not as a distraction for the entire nation, but as an opportunity to prove that even though Underwood lost, he was and still is the right person for the job, and in some miraculous way there is still hope that a time machine may be invented to go back in time and remedy this err, for all humanities sake.

Underwood is slated to contest the election results for the foreseeable future, taking trips across the nation to subliminally slander and disparage Conway in all of his attempts to run his office proper, this will be a new opportunity for the much beloved Francis Underwood to get his campaign machine geared up for the next election cycle in House of Cards season 8.
