It's a shot from The Newsies, an old movie about orphans that had to sell newspapers any way they could to make enough for the day. They definitely stretched the truth and sensationalized the news to sell more papers, much in the same way sites do today.

Well , that is why i like GIANT BOMB's "QUICK LOOK" and TOTALBISCUIT 's "WTF is" on YOUTUBE . Because they give a sample of what the game is, without spoilers. A history of the developers who made the game . And no stupid review scores at the end of the video.
