it's got disinfo streaming down it's cheeks!
I beg to differ. It's got silliness and stupidity streaming down it's cheeks, but not disinfo.
The thing that bothers me most is not that there are fools out there that say this type of bunk (in the most public manner they can), but that there is such a large segment of the community that hangs on every word and laps up the kool-aid with what appears to be an overwhelming ability to overlook common reason, reason and logic in order to embrace ignorance through their desire to believe in the least probable conclusion.
It's idiotic stuff like this that gives us all a bad name. There is no need for government disinfo anymore, the community does it for them at no charge by doing their part to ensure ignorant tripe such as this will always have a built in audience.
We should collectively be ashamed of ourselves, but that isn't any fun and kind of a downer, so we will go on embarrassing ourselves like this forever.

Hmmm.... Are you sure? 1981?
I havn't listened to the video yet but visiting Mars in 1981 seems a bit of a stretch....

Why does it have to be 'disinfo'?
In what has to be a cosmic publicity stunt, lawyer and Mars Anomaly Research Society founder Andrew D. Basiago wants the National Geographic to publish his claims of finding life on Mars. An older Spirit Mars Rover photo is, he declared, " .. the most significant photograph ever taken by human beings from Earth." His letter--and PR release-- jumped the shark with his "discovery" that the NASA photo shows "a cosmic treasure trove of pictographic evidence of life on Mars, including humanoid beings, animal species, carved statues, and built structures."
"I am writing to inform the National Geographic Society that I have discovered life on Mars," Basiago said. Apparently, he missed the memo that, according to alien fans, Bigfoot has already been found on Mars. Despite the fever pitch of rumors about NASA suppressing the vital knowledge of life on Mars (note: NASA published the photograph, folks), Basiago now says that he's the armchair explorer who found life, and the artifacts of a whole civilization, on the red planet
