Rap News :: Juice Media. News commentary done as rap. Published online out of Australia and generally done from a left-wing/anarchistic perspective. Anchored by the character Robert Foster and featuring several other characters who are personifications of various things that are wrong in the world: General Baxter (the American war machine), Terrance Moonseed (conspiracy theories), Ken Oathcarn (Australian right-wingers), and Bill De Berg (global capitalism).


The show (in)famously featured Jullian Assange don a mullet and sing a lyrically altered rendition of an Australian golden oldie as part of his campaign for the Australian senate. The skit was a joke, but was portrayed by several media outlets as a for-real campaign ad.

Provides examples of the following tropes:

Baxter: You'd better listen, and do what you're told to do. Your grave will be hidden, when we get ahold of you. We'll tuck you on the barby flames like shrimps! Don't you remember what we did to Davy Hicks!
Assange: I was going to wait until the end of the week, but I think it's time to release the next Wikileak. After collatoral murder, this is collatoral killing spree. A voice you recognize, committing acts of infamy. (video of Baxter ordering an attack on random farmers)

How well does it match the trope?
