The top-rated Greek news channel is Alpha TV's. Tonight's second-lead story: outrage and disgust over babycage.net, a quite obvious web hoax that is even listed as one on Open Directory (and which took this Googling non-journalist about 60 seconds to discover). The breathless commentary on this "instance of American self-indulgence"? how this is a first step towards a new Orwellian society --ironic considering they are spreading disinformation through mass-media, just like Mr. Orwell predicted...
Some people still believe that the Moon landings were faked. Some actually believe an even more disturbing scenario: that in fact a "World Government" has secretly colonized the Moon and Mars. This is the premise of the "Alternative Three" conspiracy theory. Interestingly enough, the "documentary" that spawned this theory was admittedly a hoax (Copyright April 1, 1977), and so was the book that followed it. However, it seems that even the author has been having a hard time convincing believers that it was indeed a hoax. Well, why don't you see for yourself?
