FAUX NEWS

Mike Silverman has compiled this list from The Simpsons’ satire of Fox News’s crawl:

POINTLESS NEWS CRAWLS UP 37 PERCENT … DO DEMOCRATS CAUSE
CANCER? FIND OUT AT FOXNEWS.COM … RUPERT MURDOCH: TERRIFIC
DANCER … DOW DOWN 5000 POINTS … STUDY: 92 PERCENT OF
DEMOCRATS ARE GAY … JFK POSTHUMOUSLY JOINS REPUBLICAN PARTY …
OIL SLICKS FOUND TO KEEP SEALS YOUNG, SUPPLE … DAN QUALYE:
AWESOME … ASHCROFT DECLARES BREAST OF CHICKEN SANDWICH “OBSCENE” …
HILLARY CLINTON EMBARRASSES SELF, NATION … BIBLE SAYS JESUS
FAVORED CAPITAL-GAINS CUT … STAY TUNED FOR HANNITY AND IDIOT
… ONLY DORKS WATCH CNN … JIMMY CARTER: OLD, WRINKLY, USELESS
… BRAD PITT + ALBERT EINSTEIN = DICK CHENEY … RIGHT WING OF
CHICKEN // [cut off at this point]

Pretty amusing. I watch Fox News and think they, on balance, do a better job than their competitors. But they can get a little too hyperbolic for my tastes, notably Bill O’Reilly and the annoying Shepard Smith. (Thanks to Heretical Ideas for the link.)
