Fake News Writer | Episode 1 | YouTube Series



(man mumbles) – Hello, fake news writer. (tense music) You saw what was inside? (man inhales) I'm sorry, Ethan. Really was interesting being friends with you, if you can call it that. I never thought things would go this far. (Ethan screams) – [Ethan] You might be wondering how I got in this crazy situation. It's a mind-blowing story filled with mystery, twists, and turns. Some of it will make you jump for joy. Some of it will make your skin crawl. All I can tell you is
that when you find out, your life will never be the same again. (upbeat rock music) (alarm beeps) – [Interviewer] So, uh,
tell me about yourself. – I recently graduated from NYU Tisch School of the Arts
dramatic writing program where I concentrated in screenwriting. – So, dramatic writing is screenwriting? – Yeah, I've studied copywriting, but I have a little experience. – So, ultimately, do you
want to be a screenwriter or a copywriter? – Copywriter. – Then, why did you go to
school for screenwriting? – You see, I wanted to be a screenwriter, but then I started writing
advertisements for people, and I was like, "Wow,
this is my true calling. Screw movies." (laughs) (sighs) Are you there? Well, I wouldn't say I have experience writing about golden
(alarm beeps) retrievers specifically, but I'm a writer. I can write about anything. No, no, I don't have experience writing about Japanese rubber wetsuits specifically,
(alarm beeps) but I love Japanese manga, and I dated a Japanese girl in school. And I love rubber. Glow-in-the-dark condoms
(alarm beeps) are kind of, not in a field of experience. Absolutely, I have experience writing about two-ply cotton toilet paper. It has saved my life. (upbeat piano music) Okay. Okay. Alright, awesome! Thank you, thank you. Oh, it's an unpaid job? Oh yeah, yeah, that would
look great on my resume, experience writing about toilet paper. – So?
(Ethan sighs) How did the job interview go? (TV remote clicks) – [News Reporter] If I'm Trump (Ethan groans)
I'm worried about all these– – Still can't believe we
have Hitler as our President. – Wouldn't go that far with it. – Oh, really? Well, I would because he is Hitler, and that's not even the worst part. The worst part is that
almost half of our country, and I say almost because
he lost the popular vote, is a bunch of racist, sexist, xenophobic, misogynistic, transphobic– – Political writer needed. Highly compensated. You will need to write with
whatever bias we give you. If your own political
feelings are too strong, this is not the job for you. – Islamophobic, write
supremacist, transphobic– – The page is a pro-Trump
conservative page called American Conservative. (ping pong ball bounces) Is that okay? – Oh? (down-tempo electronic music) Yeah, that's fine. – You have to understand that our audience is angry older folks. They're a fragile group. You have to be able to
appeal to their emotions. – Gun-toting, child-murdering, abortion clinic bombing,
white hood wearing– – Yeah, I can do that. – Do you have any political
writing experience? – Yeah, I have some political
satire writing experience. – Some of the things you're
writing'll be so ridiculous, you can pretend they're satire. (ping pong ball bounces) Like, for example, if Walmart
hires a new Spanish translator you can write about how Mexico is taking over American business. – Wow, that's extreme. (ping pong ball splashes) – Exactly. – Anti-science, white, male, neo-Nazi, transphobic pieces of shit. – Okay, or it could just
be a conservative person who has to make a decision
between a conservative candidate and a liberal candidate. – Excuse me, but that word conservative that you use so lightly, is just another word for racist. – Well, if you had a conversation with a conservative friend– – Well, I would never. Why would I wanna be friends with someone who hates everyone who
isn't a cis white male, huh? (Ethan sighs) – Should be interesting. I have great news. – Oh, so do I. You go first, save the best for last. – I got a job. – That's great. So my news is that my hacking
group, Doxxers Anonymous, shut down yet another fake news page. – Hacking group? – We hacked into this online
conservative fake news website and published all of the
owner's personal information. Then they were shamed
all over the internet until they had to shut the page down, but their faces are still out there. So, we can make sure that
those scum of the earth never get jobs again. – Wow. – Yeah. Check out this list. These are all of the
pages Doxxers Anonymous will be investigating
in the next few months. – Shit. – I know, right?
