The galaxy is a most violent, undesirable, and disgusting place, full of
anguish, fear, and greed. Evil and degenerate criminal minds permeate even
the most pleasant and relaxing of worlds, and social disorder is rampant.
These facts are known to all of the civilised worlds in detail. Great detail
Every day, a galaxy wide television channel transmits constant news
and views solely about violence, slaughter, and corruption on a grand
scale. Using a trans-fusion powered inter-space cross-dimensional transmitter
of colossal proportions, situated in a gargantuan and secret underground
production centre known as the 'Cavern of Sensationalism', the signal
crosses the vast reaches of space in no time at all, allowing live broadcasts
and up to date reports to be sent to all of the populated worlds instantaneously.
The channel in question has the rather unmemorable title of 'Channel 180567
News', but none the less cleans up as far as ratings are concerned. One
show in particular is very popular. It is called 'Carnage Tonight', and
has viewing figures constantly in the billions.
The show's presenter, Kent Diamond, and his team of super-skilled, super-motivated
journalists, use every method available, including bribes, lies, explosives,
and idle threats, to get their stories. They absolutely will not stop
until their assignments are complete, and truth, justice, and highly entertaining
This is a story of two of their journalists, Lex Toxic and Antoine Venom.
Read it with an open mind. Learn from it. You may never look at the mass
media in the same way again...
