Propaganda, Inc.

Thanks for sharing this!

After a dismal summer of lackluster sales, Propaganda, Inc., which supplies credulity-stretching predictions to the news media, is experiencing an unprecedented surge in income.

The company attributed the increase to strong demand over the past few weeks in both US and foreign markets for products sold by its Outrageous Claims division.

“In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, print, broadcast and radio companies are stepping up purchases of Wild Guesses, Inaccurate Estimates and Pie-In-The-Sky Forecasts,” says a company official. “Those are goods Propaganda excels at producing.”

Past results indicate Propaganda has proven adept at taking advantage of compelling market opportunities such as terrorist attacks and natural disasters. Experts say the trend is likely to continue.

Yesterday, in what’s widely viewed as more good news for Propaganda, competitors such as Truth Unlimited, Fairness, Inc. and Common Sense reported unprecedented declines in sales. Industry analysts say these companies have been struggling for years and may soon be forced into bankruptcy. They also say that’s the inevitable result of Propaganda’s increasing share of the media market.

Propaganda denies the allegations. “There’s a lot of misinformation out there,” says a company spokesperson.
