Vice Publishes Suspect Clickbait Nonsense About a Hacker Hacking a Male Chastity Dick-Cage Device;Comedian Who Made Up the Story Takes Credit for Getting Vice to Publish Fake News, Again

Before getting to that, let's note this serendipitous story, that Vice just laid off more "journalists" last week, and is now shopping itself to another company, and Tim Pool says they're hoping for a buyout or merger.

Generally, healthy companies don't try to sell themselves.

And mergers are most often sought these days when an unhealthy company is not capable of living on its own, and seeks to parasitically merge with a somewhat-healthier company.

Mergers always result in further layoffs as many positions become redundant. Cost-cutting and employee-shedding is the whole point in many mergers.

Now, on to the Dick in a Box:

Remember this story?

It was published by the clickbait idiots at Vice. Who are only 5% less competent than any other "journalists."

Here's their story:

Sam Summers was sitting at home with his penis wrapped in an internet-connected chastity cage when he got a weird message on the app that connects to the device. Someone told him they had taken control and they wanted around $1,000 in Bitcoin to give control back to Summers.

"Initially, I thought it was my partner doing that," Summers told Motherboard in a phone call. "It sounds silly, but I got a bit excited by it."

But when Summers called his partner, she told him it wasn't her, even after he told her their safe word. That's when he realized he had gotten hacked. His penis was locked in the cage, and he had no way out.

"Oh, shit, it's real," Summers said. "I started looking at the thing. There's no manual override at all. It's a chastity belt, I guess it kind of shouldn't [have an override.] But when it's a digital thing like that, it should have a key or something. But it obviously didn't."

Thank you, Vice, for telling us about this horrible security risk we're taking when we put our dicks inside mechanical traps!

Problem is, a comedian named Lewis Spears says he made up the story just to get another fake story printed by "journalists." This is his hobby, and he does it for purposes of both pranking idiots and promoting his shows.

He explains how easy it was to dupe the "journalist" at Vice below:

Now that the hoaxster is admitting -- and celebrating -- that he tricked the Brain Trust at Vice, you'd think that Vice would update their "story" to alert the public that this was all a fraud.

And they have, indeed updated the story.

To claim, "Well, it's fake but accurate."

UPDATE, March 24, 2021: In January, Motherboard published an article about a hacker who locked multiple people out of their internet-connected chastity cages.

They're claiming that while this person complaining of his Dick-Cage being hacked was fake, their previous story -- based on the claims of someone claiming to be a hacker, who locked people's dicks in cages -- was real.

Oh? How do you know>

You don't seem to do much fact-checking, Vice. The turnaround from hearing about this story from "Sam Summers" to publishing it as fact was... one day.

One thing the comedian says is that he has gotten a lot of fake stories published by the "journalists" of the media, so his name is well-known to them. Or it would be, if they did a simple google search.

And he says that even though he offers these stories under fake names, he has sometimes sent emails from an account with his real name, alerting the "journalists" he's writing to that 1, he's using a fake name, and 2, what his real name is, and 3, if they even bothered to search for his real name, they'd discover he is a serial hoaxster.

He says that these errors never stop the "journalists" from publishing obvious fiction as fact.

He didn't make that mistake in this latest prank, but he's done it before, with no problems.

"Maybe I have too much faith in 'journalists,'" he says. Yeah, maybe!

It's almost as if "journalists" don't check for the possibility of fake news because 99% of their jobs is publishing fake news from obvious liars.
