SICK media

Just as a bit of a heads up, it’s quite possible that ya’ll will soon be getting emails from at least one of your “friends” stating that the TV series “Family Guy” carried by FOX had an episode prior to the Boston Marathon that “predicted” the Marathon bombing. It will even supposedly show you a snippet of the episode where the main character “Peter” is sitting in a booth dressed like a muslim and is being interviewed by Bob Costas asking him how he won the Boston Marathon. Peter then is shown dialing the phone followed by the sound of an explosion then he dials again and you hear another explosion.
While Family Guy is in my opinion a weird , tasteless, cartoon ,the truth is that someone, for reasons unknown (probably because they hate FOX) has taken pieces from two different situations within the same episode and cut and pasted them together to make it appear that Family Guy predicted the Marathon bombing..
The scene where Peter supposedly won the the Boston marathon, he did it by driving his car thru the runners. (I told you this was sick humor). The scene where he supposedly became friends with an extremist and was dressed like a muslim using the extremist phone to explode bombs was a separate scenario within the same “turbin cowboy” episode but the scene involved blowing up a bridge, not the marathon.
Whoever meshed these two things together was bought into by some idiot media guy by the name of Alex Jones who appears be responsible for getting this conspiracy ball rolling.
Just thought you might like to know. Sick SOB.

You Know I Seen That Episode And I Never Thought Of That....... Now That I Think Of That You Are Right About It. I Know The Creater Of Family Guy Hates Fox And Is Always Bashing On Them In His Own Cartoon. But However I Did Not Notice It Until You Mentioned Something And I Dont Like Fox At All And I Could Go On A Rant About Fox And There morLs And How F'd Up They Are. Reminds Me Of How 9/11 Was Predicted In Many Movies And Tv Shows Before It Actually Happened.

Angry

I know how you feel Doug. Here the media Per Se pounce on any major calamity, natural or otherwise and turn it into entertainment masquerading as news for the benefit of ratings. People with barrows to push, manipulating the flow of infomation create the hallmark of politics today.

Media always sensationalizes tragegies as after all it is their bread and butter. Several networks stated how brave their reporters were to have placed themselves on the front line to bring us mere citizens the latest news. If I had the authority I would arrest any reporter that was doing live feed. I see it as nothing more than real time intelligence providing the criminal's with intel. First responders and miltary Men and women are sent to the front on orders are America's finest, those who choose to place themselves in harms way for money are profiteers.
