The McCain Girls Return

BY Joshua Levy | Wednesday, June 11 2008

They're back! I have to admit, ever since they were unmasked as phonies a few months back, I've been pining away for the McCain Girls. Those off-by-a-half-note harmonies, off-kilter dance moves, and fantastically bad special effects all had a special charm.

Thankfully, the girls have returned with another classic.

The lyrics are as funny-bad as ever, and the special effects take it up a notch.

I love that "trapped in a box" effect!

Unfortunately for McCain, these appear to be some of the only videos in support of his candidacy, even if they are satires. If actual McCain fans would produce some videos maybe there'd be enough competition to push the girls to the next level.

New Media Sites in Iran Blur Lines Between Citizen Journo, Professional Journo, & Activist

In 2010, Newsweek declared Iran the “birthplace of citizen journalism.” Iranian bloggers were hailed by Westerners as “brave” for their coverage of the aftermath of the disputed 2009 election. A 40-second video of the death of Neda Agha-Soltan during an anti-government protest won a prestigious George Polk Award, the first anonymously-produced work to be so honored. And then came the 2013 study “Whither Blogestan,” which sought to explain Iran's shrinking blogosphere. Of nearly 25,000 highly active and connected blogs in 2008 and 2009, only 20 percent were still online in September 2013.
