This is a totally hypothetical story. I wonder how it would play on Fox News

The Daily Show Showing Fox News’ Contradictions Again, This Time About Food Stamps

By: Thursday March 6, 2014 7:20 pm

Once again, Jon Stewart has done a superb job of showing the hypocrisy and contradictions of Fox News. One thing that he could have mentioned, however, is that junk food is the only food that food stamp recipients can afford.

Late Night: Bubble Trouble

By: Thursday January 30, 2014 8:00 pm

Frank Rich wrote a piece in New York magazine this week about the increasing irrelevance of Fox News, arguing that it was time for liberals to stop worrying about it, already, because the conservative information bubble it creates has caused more damage to the Republican party than its relentless propaganda can counteract.  He’s right, when speaking strictly about national and statewide elections, but its effect on House districts, state politics, and more importantly, the rest of the media, is as toxic as ever.

Trying a bit too hard

The ever relinquishing grip on reality of not only the far-right, but establishment conservative media continues to pick up speed.

Media Coverage Explodes on Petraeus CUNY Honors College Protests

By: Friday September 13, 2013 1:35 pm

After The Dissenter ran a Sept. 10 interview with a member of the Ad Hoc Committee Against the Militarization of CUNY protesting former CIA Director David Petraeus’ adjunct professor gig at CUNY Macaulay Honors College, national coverage has exploded on protests occurring on his Sept. 9 first day of class.

A 9/11 Takeaway: Media Consolidation in Action

By: Wednesday September 11, 2013 4:45 pm

I wish sometimes that the various news divisions within these organizations still reflected the pioneers of broadcast journalism. Even as he sometimes did commercial shows, Edward R Murrow brought in depth reporting. Walter Cronkite did a few appearances in network shows and movies but maintained his credibility. NBC gave us Chet Huntley and David Brinkley then John Chancellor. I would hesitate to designate any current news anchors from these big 5 broadcast media groups as an heir to these men. Instead of a Huntley or Brinkley, we get Disco Dave Gregory and his dance party.

The Repetition Compulsion for War — and How It Might Fail This Time

By: Monday September 9, 2013 5:45 am

No matter how many times we’ve seen it before, the frenzy for launching a military attack on another country is — to the extent we’re not numb — profoundly upsetting. Tanked up with talking points in Washington, top officials drive policy while intoxicated with what Martin Luther King Jr. called “the madness of militarism,” and most media coverage becomes similarly unhinged. That’s where we are now.

Muslims to Remotely Change All of Your Car Radio Presets to ShariaRock Top 40 Stations. Then Kill You.

By: Thursday July 18, 2013 2:10 pm

In their mission to provide their viewers with only the most ridiculous paranoid conspiracies conceivable, Fox News “cyber-terrorism expert” Morgan Wright explains that the terrorists are going to take over your car remotely (presumably using an Xbox controller) and make you careen wildly out of the Taco Bell drive-thru before you can grab your 12-pack of Cool Ranch Loco Tacos and 64-ounce El Gordito Mr. Pibb and then you will starve to death and the terrorists will have won. The end.
