Mythmakers TV Show

The evil inversion of the TV show Mythbusters.
  [vote for,

Each week’s episode explores a series of harmless myths perpetrated by the show’s team. They design the myth, say that a circus duck that played the piano started writing music once given a certain intelligence enhancing drug. The news broadcasts, web articles and social sites that buy the myth are collected and then, after getting a friendly note saying that they were pranked, asked if they mind if their broadcast, website or newspaper articles get featured in the show.

Kind of like a twist on the old Candid Camera tv show.

       Purely for the purposes of collating which ones are comfortable with everyone knowing they're staffed by a lying bunch of poorly trained retards who never bother to check or corroborate sources & those that would rather people didn't know that about them, of course, they get included however they respond to the missive, if their response is amusing enough it gets shown in toto.

       And it could serve to inspire lying poorly trained retards to up their game and become lying highly trained retards.

       Bugger! that's not what we want, they're harder to spot than the poorly trained ones.

       If I mention Hugh Trevor- Roper, will that trigger Godwin's Law?

       The big trick will be ensuring against the double-cross conspiracy hypothesis that inevitably creeps up. "I saw this on mythmakers so it can't be true."
