This here marks the tenth episode of Third Eye Weekly. For Sequel Week, we take a look back at the blogosphere’s predictions for the villains to the upcoming Batman flick, The Dark Knight Rises, with Bat-expert and independent film producer, Greg Keras.

This week, we discuss their coverage of the media-hyped-but-totally-bogus “link” between Occupy Wall Street and a murder that took place eight years ago. Also on their radar is the recent controversy over a clash between Daniel Tosh and a heckler during one of his live performances that has sparked a healthy debate in the comedy community over the treatment of humor in the subject of violence against women.
While the stories may appear unrelated, we discuss how second-hand sources and the predispositions of the story-tellers involved have convoluted the facts at hand, if we could even be so sure of them to begin with.
