DREW CURTIS likes to tell the mass media to "fark" off. His brainchild, www.fark.com, blasts outlandish headlines and weird news with fire-tongued wit. Recently, Curtis stayed offline long enough to write It's Not News, It's Fark: How Mass Media Tries to Pass Off Crap as News. The guy who's stickin' it to the news man visits Manuel's Tavern Sat., JULY 14, thanks to A Cappella Books.
