The Lost and Damned feature stories unique to Johnny Klebitz's storyline but also includes references events from the GTA IV storyline:

The Ballad of Gay Tony

The Ballad of Gay Tony features stories unique to Luis Fernando Lopez' storyline, but references events in the other plots as well.

  • Bobby Jefferson gives a speech after an attempted assassination. (GTA IV story)
  • Mayor Ochoa proposes plan to flood subways to fight rodent infestation and the bad smell of pee from the homeless.

  • President Lawton involved in a texting/E-mail scandal with the Italian Prime Minister
  • A MyRoom user sets fire to a neighbors' house after being 'de-friended' by the neighbor.

Grand Theft Auto V

Trivia

  • In GTA V, for unknown reasons, Weazel News is played frequently on Radio Los Santos sometimes. It is unknown if this is a glitch.
  • As explained above, Weazel News mocks Fox News, as both weasels and foxes are native animals to America and Europe, presuming that it's a Red Fox.
  • 'Weasel' is also used as a word to show cowardice, 'To weasel out of something' but it is also a Euphemism for a penis.
  • Weazel in Weazel News is spelled incorrectly, though, this was maybe intentional.
  • The Weazel News Helicopter is a two-bladed Maverick even though the GTA IV Maverick is a four-bladed variant. The two-bladed varient was possibly removed and replaced with a four-bladed one in development.
  • There is a humerous Weazel News advertisement on TV that shows a Weazel News Helicopter hovering near a man on fire while asking him to look at the camera on the helicopter.
