If it weren't for the fact that I was browsing with filtering
on (I've got both Intermute and proxy filtering enabled)
I might have gotten caught up in this. But with Javascript
disabled, several of the should-be external URL's didn't
show up as pointing to Time or CNN and so it immediately became
suspicious. Subsequent investigation revealed they pointed
to cleverly adapted local pages designed to appear as reputable
sources. But I probably wasted 15-20 minutes going through the
HTML source attempting to validate the references. :-|

IMO, given the relative ease of presenting false data as
real data, such "performance art" should be clearly labeled
as such.
