Glad you posted this. Laughed my ass off last night watching it.

The sad thing is, the people who really would benefit from seeing the absurdity of Fox News demonstrated for them -- from a source that winds up being the most insightful and analytical "news" programming that now exists -- will never tune in to see it.

I wondered one thing while watching this, concerning the unabashed violations of journalistic ethics Fox keeps getting caught at: Do network executives have to declare or define the nature of the programming they offer? Isn't there some sort of oversight bureaucracy, like a licensing board or something, that can determine when a news organization has stepped out of bounds? Not in a punitive way, I'm just wondering if at some point someone goes to the news director and says "your programming is now substantially different than what you declared in your charter; you don't provide news any more, so we need to renegotiate your status on the cable and airwaves you operate in."

Probably not, right? And even if there was such a thing, it would obviously just be the tool of muslim socialist nazi negro terrorists bent on controlling us through our televisions.

Man I felt like a nerd when I immediately guessed that it was an electron in an orbital.

You don't need to be a nerd to have understood what the graphic represents. Just be smarter than a trig kindergartner.

Which disqualifies Republicans and Teabaggers.

Really, Fox?

Really?
That's the best you can come up with? Secret messages hidden in logos?

And you wonder why you're not respected by any credible school of journalism.

Ha! I totally just KNEW you were going to use this in your blog. As soon as the bit was over, the first thought I had was "Chez needs to post this." Seriously.

I actually thought maybe the logo was from Watchmen.
