Overview

Rated "the best" on the web in political satire by Yahoo's Internet Life, American Newspeak brings Orwell's doublespeak up to date for the 21st century. Our advertisers, CEOs and politicians have made cutting edge advances in the fracturing of logic lately that have left Big Brother in the dust. This collection of doubletalk by America's best and brightest, painstakingly scavenged from the crevices of our media, contains countless gems of mangled meaning spewed out by the spin doctors of the emerging new world order. Just open the pages to cruise the Education Mall, visit the Department of Downsizing, pay with your tax dollars for Perma-War, or marvel at the wonders of McHealth and Science-Mart... Between the laughs, you may even learn some new tricks for using humor to penetrate our culture's consumer fog. -- Vital fodder for educators, community and labor activists, WTO protestors, and all citizens who want to maintain their remaining shreds of sanity.
