The Alvin Greene saga is so ridiculous and crazy that it’s sorta hard to blame the New York Times and Newsweek, among others*, for being hoodwinked by this hilarious – and obviously fake – campaign rap video, which was made by a couple of Twitter rascals (one of whom contributed to #arttvshows). I’ve watched this about twenty times and I always lose it when the auto-tune starts

*CNN is apparently the only news outlet that actually fact-checks whatever YouTube videos pop up in its inbox before reporting on them

7/31 UPDATE: Video replaced. YouTube removed the original because it used a couple of photos taken by a Tea Party astroturfer, who filed a copyright claim
