Started by Michael, Evan, Andrew and Sarah Gregory, Auto-Tune the News takes video clips of Politicians, Pundits, and Newscasters. The dialog of the clips is then Auto-Tuned transforming spoken word into singing. The goal of the project, is to not only add some humor to these normally dry, antiseptic broadcasts, but to make the information delivered fun and understandable to a younger generation, dare we call them, the Auto-Tune generation. In a time when technology can be manipulated to make the impossible a reality, as well as becoming an industry main-stay, this new form of audio filtering can make the worst of singers stay in key, but it can even make CNN fun.
