John Lennon and the Grudge Report

7/17/2006 12:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The "Grudge Report" a site that parodies the famous news gathering site "Drudge Report" has appeared on the internet. The offending website is an advertisement for the upcoming Lions Gate documentary " The U.S. vs. John Lennon."

The documentary chronicles Lennon the peace activist as opposed to Lennon the Beatle and his troubles with the U.S. government- from the legal wrangling involving FBI files to the goverment try to deport him. The film will have interviews with Lennon's widow Yoko Ono, Walter Cronkite, Geraldo Rivera, activist Angela Davis, and Watergate ex-con G. Gordon Liddy.

While a parody of websites is nothing new, the act of re-creating a news website with the intent to promote a documentary about a peace activist is. Was Drudge irked? Who knows. But he did post the headline "Paramount Movie Campaign Mocks Drudge Report...."

"The U.S. vs. John Lennon" is set to be released in September.

Oh the good ole days, when the government was evil and the FBI was its filthy shirt and tie suited tentacle probing and prodding its way through the hearts and bowels of America. Will we ever see such a glorious day again? There is not enough probing going on for my liking now a days, lets get some celebrities in on some of this probing action. Come on TMZ you "know" these people, lets get a probin.
