Fake news and short-stories
Collections of fake news, short stories, imaginary biographies of celebrities in a satirical and humorous manner. The play between fact and fiction is a dominant theme. The impact of the satirical magazine “Onion” is obvious, but these nespapers go further than satirysizing local and global news, political events and social issues.
Deconstruction of the “truth” becomes the main theme of these newspapers that tend to prove theat the truth in the modern world is a term and concept easily manipulated, and commercial and consumeristic way of thinking and living are the main areas of criticism. Social engagement is important issue in these publications and is an extension of the satire and humor. It’s an endeavor to bring artistic discourse in journalistic genre.
