From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The '''liberal media''' is a national brainwashing operation controlled by liberals, communists, members of [[Al-Qaeda]], [[gay|homosexuals]], and women. It consists of a group of shabby studios in which $200 camcorders point at hippies sitting in plastic chairs whining about children dying in war torn foreign countries. Even Osama Bin Laden’s crew makes better videos than the liberal media.

The liberal media studios reside in flower shops run by 50 year old English lesbians. The ultimate goal of the liberal media is to brainwash the American public into believing that, owing to the fact that the majority of the world’s human population live in misery and desperation, God doesn’t exist. The reason they do this is to allow Satanists, usually known as [[Democrats]] in the United States, to rule over the innocent people of the United States in a merciless and tyrannical fashion.

Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia, is a satirical parody of Wikipedia.[1] The website is a wiki that provides humor- and satire-themed articles. The site was launched on January 5, 2005 by Jonathan Huang, aka Chronarion, and an unnamed counterpart.[2] The Uncyclopedia logo is a hollowed potato, a spoof of Wikipedia's globe logo.[2]

Liberals hate liberty and Democrats hate democracy, so when the Democrats are in power the people of the United States have no freedom. When the Democrats have total control over the United States they tend to do such things as ending wars started by the former [[Republican]] presidents and providing social security and free healthcare for the worthless rat people known as the working class. When the Democrats are in power taxes are so high for the rich (better) people of the United States that they sometimes cannot afford to install more than one new swimming pool in each one of their mansions each year.

Uncyclopedia was founded on January 5, 2005, and quickly outgrew its original webhost.[3] On May 26, 2005, Angela Beesley, vice president of Wikia, Inc., announced that Wikia would host Uncyclopedia and that the site's license and domain name would remain unchanged.[3] Huang transferred ownership of the uncyclopedia.org domain to Wikia, Inc. on July 10, 2006.[4]
   
The Liberal Media was first ruled by Godfather [[Michael Corleone]] in the late [[50s]]. The Corleone administration established the precedent of brutally forcing each of the major news organizations to report in ways that further [[Peace]], [[Humanity]], [[Decency]], and thereby [[insanity]].

The Liberal media, being the strongest yet the only branch of government controlled by the Democratic Party, George Bush declared the [[Second Civil War]] in 2002 against the them. In hindsight, the war may have been created unnecessarily when Bush accused the liberal media of planting a [[pretzel]] in an assassination attempt.

[edit] Content
   
There is only one concept to take into account when you examine the liberal media. They are never right. No matter what the liberal media do they will always be conveying a message that appears liberal on the surface, but is actually an elaborate scheme to encroach a universal system of ideals onto the public. Just remember that whatever ideas you might have will probably not be the result of your own cognitive fabrication of information, but something you saw on your new plasma television equipped with 90000 different channels that actually convey CONSERVATIVE media. Blame the NSC. Thank you and enjoy your local programming.

Uncyclopedia has many people who appear on many pages either in the form of quotes, or references to them in other ways. Some of these people have gained an almost cult status with a reference to them on almost every page. A recurring joke is that of misquoting Oscar Wilde, whose "wisdom touches on nearly every conceivable topic, often without consent...", either with a well-known, but slightly edited, genuine quote designed to parody the overuse of quotes, or with a phrase completely different from his style. There is an entire lexicon of fictitious Oscar Wilde quotes.[8] Most of the articles are either completely fictional, or parodied to such an extent that little or no original factual accuracy remains.

[edit] Press coverage
   
If we look at the main figures in the American media right now, [[Bill O’Reilly]], [[Sean Hannity]], [[Ann Coulter]], [[Joe Scarborough]] and [[Rush Limbaugh]] for example, the media doesn’t generally convey or support liberal causes. The real liberal media is too smart to let people know it exists though. Their effects upon the American media are not apparent most (99%) of the time; but this is just a result of how good at hiding themselves they really are. The liberal media actually works by making its public figures appear conservative. Bill O’Reilly is in actuality part of the liberal media conspiracy. The idea is that to hide their identity they don’t put nice and polite liberals into the media to support their cause, they put rude and arrogant conservatives into the media to turn people against the conservatives.

Uncyclopedia has been mentioned in several well-known news publications from around the world, in addition to numerous local and regional newspapers and periodicals. In 2005, the Flying Spaghetti Monster entry from Uncyclopedia was mentioned in a New York Times column reporting the spread of so-called "Pastafarianism".[1] The column was then reprinted in several other newspapers, including the Taipei Times.[9] Several other articles have been centered on specific entries on Uncyclopedia - most notably the article on the Arizona Daily Star, which focused on the Tucson, Arizona parody.[10]
   
Bill O’Reilly is a master of this art. For example if somebody appears on his show, who’s father has been killed in a horrific terrorist attack, O’Reilly must act like a total cunt to sicken his viewing audience. O’Reilly will say that he hates the terrorists and supports and ‘represents’ the families of the terrorist attack, and then brings the son of a victim (one of the people he ‘represents’) onto the show and says such things as:

In addition to articles about specific entries on the wiki, several papers speak of the website in general - usually in a section devoted to technology or "the web." This was the case when Uncyclopedia was referenced in the Boston Herald[11] and The Guardian.[12] While most articles mentioning Uncyclopedia are specific to the site, there are other articles about Wikia or Wikipedia that just mention its name briefly. These include the editorial in The Register discussing the John Seigenthaler Sr. Wikipedia biography controversy, in which Uncyclopedia was named only once.[13]

As has already been mentioned the liberal media broadcasts from flower shops. The hippy women who run the flower shops also grow marijuana and are therefore stoned out of their minds while reading the news. That means they are incapable of reading the head-up displays with the actual news on and so come up with ridiculous nonsense such as:
