Balloon Boy - Hoax, Publicity Stunt?

Recommended Posts

I say the media over-reacted to a bizarre situation as they often do.

 

Most media: OH EM GEZZ ITS NEWSSS .................... ok sorry its not *but keeps covering it to not look stupid but looks stupid anyways as they try to draw it out*.

 

CNN texts me headlines for important events. Why did they text me 6 times with this story? I need 2 texts, the breaking news info, then "oh he's alive no big deal after all". Are we that desperate for cheap thrills? :mad:

The media is making it look like a stunt, and people are eating it up.But just imagine if it is.It cost law enforcement 2 million dollars for that whole incident for helicopters and the whole nine yards.

well big business doesn't want you to report on "99% of Americans get screwed, banks keep making record profits and paying record bonuses...government decides after receiving lobbying efforts and campaign donations not to fix anything"

 

but that'd be OLD news anyway..

A publicity stunt. How can the parents not check the entire house first before assuming the kid is in the balloon? And thankfully i've been avoiding the news channels. I only heard of this via the radio.

The way the Father reacted to it, i think its a hoax . He called the FAA and then a News Station. then it think they said it was another 10 mins before the police were called, something in this smells bad like rotten bull. And did you see the way he lets his children live , there aloud to fart, burp curse and run around the house crazy according to wife swap. I think he should lose his kids for a while. and who takes there kids on Storm Chases? I know some Storm Chasers they would never put there family in Danger like that.....

the kid admitted in an interview that his parent's told him they were doing it for "the show." his dad gets all flustered and replies with some story about how his son trails behind the family while going to the store for candy... WTF does that even mean? HOAX.

Of course it's a hoax. What else did you think it'd be?

 

In case you had doubts, the following videos should dispel them:
