The Truth about Goats

Wikitribune – the new ‘Newsbiscuit’

Wikipedia’s co-founder, Jimmy Wales, has set out his intention to break the monopoly held by ‘Newsbiscuit’ on dubious facts, inept spelling and spurious tax returns.  Mr. Wales hopes that Wikitribune will become the online news-provider of choice for plagiarizing students, Sean Spicer and cheating pub quiz teams.

Wikitribune will initially try to counteract bad journalism – but will inevitably descend into gossip about celebrity sex tapes and Isle of Wight trivia.  Other fake-news outlets, like The Daily Mail’, have complained that Mr. Wales may steal their legitimate sources – such as racist millionaires, a magic eight ball and the ashes of Princess Diana.

Without recourse to James Corden’s gags, it is uncertain whether Wikitribune will be able to generate the same level of material.  Mused one Newsbiscuit staff writer: ‘Give an infinite number monkeys, an infinite number of typewriters and you’re probably going to upset the delicate eco-system that those monkeys inhabit’.

Unlike Newsbiscuit, Wikitribune will be ad-free; leaving many readers concerned as to where to find reliable penis enlargement firms?  As yet Mr Wales is yet to commit to the tried and tested ‘John O’Farrell model’, whereby you do not pay your reporters – in the hope that journalistic integrity is maintained through malnutrition, sleeping rough and ‘selling blood’.

    Have you noticed, Wikitribune’s first forays into hard-hitting journalism have been Q&A interviews with their own Advisory Board members? Be on the lookout to watch Wikitribune join Jimbo’s other great projects like Openserving, Wikia Search, CiviliNation, Impossible, and The People’s Operator.

"It takes a sick and yet highly evolved mind to fully grasp the sophistication of your humor. I tried to explain this to my wife, who thought I was having convulsions as I lay on the floor laughing." (Mike Lince)
