Hmmm, do I donate $10 to the hilariously mentioned flood victims of Brazil, or to NewsBusted? Decisions, decisions...
A flood killed hundreds of people in Brazil this month....IS MICHAEL MOORE GOING TO EAT ALL THE CORPSES?? THANK YOU, GOOD NIGHT!
I...wtf? I was ready to give it 1 star, then the donation thing came up. Assuming they run only off donations, that means people are actually donating to keep it alive. This amuses me slightly.
It's the conservative ripoff of Adbusters.
Just because they are asking for donations doesn't mean they are sustained by them. According to Sourcewatch.org, Newsbusted gets it's money from the MRC (mentioned at the start of a video).
The MRC is funded by a few conservative foundations including The Scaife Foundation (who are practically super-villains), and Exxon Mobile (who are basically Captain Planet villains).
Stars to my surprise that there are people enjoying this thing in the yt comments. That or they just fap to this woman, or maybe a bit of both. Makes sense, the only way angry frustrated middle age white guys can get off is by cheap puns towards people with different beliefs. All this while presented by a mature woman in a suit.
The jokes aren't great, but at least they're jokes. To me, that's a marked improvement for conservative humour.

Canned laughter = 5 stars.
It's a little funny how far she has to stretch to take a pot shot at strawmen. Especially when she sets up with a tragic news story.
She likes anal.*
* I don't actually know if she likes anal.
Are they still jokes if your audience take the punchlines literally?
Boy, those six interns are enjoying the hell out of the show.
I love "NewsBusted". The god awful jokes, the cheap production values, the canned laughter, the weak writing, the effort to mirror every detail of the Daily Show right down to the theme song.... It's like the Colbert Report, sans irony.
Never has the "unfunny" tag been so properly utilized.
This is Jennette McCurdy as a middle aged woman. Women in right wing politics such stiffs even when they are trying to connect with a younger audience.
I'm still invested in the belief that this is all just a long running elaborate prank. In another 3 years when this youtube show is going nowhere fast she will develop (or continue) a meth habit which in turns forces her to go to rehab. Then if she manages the meth stunt she will turn around and tell us she had us all fooled. Which then no one will care because this has no exposure nor will any of this be relevant. With this she will commit murder-suicide on her cat and dog being that they are her kids.
