The Party Line


I realize that this is beating a long-since-dead horse, but every once in a while I think it's a good idea to remind everyone that Fox News continues to call itself "fair and balanced" and insist that it's a legitimate and unbiased news outlet.

Media Matters: Fox & Friends Airs Michelle Malkin's "Obama Birthday Party Games"/8.4.11

Yeah, I know -- at this point the kind of thing that makes you turn your pillow over to the cool side and go back to sleep.

Another completely worthless point: Am I the only one who's always thought the name "Fox & Friends" sounds amusingly like some kind of Orwellian Newspeak?

"Fox and Friends" sounds like what a 13-year-old girl writes on the sleepover invitation she "accidentally" shows to the group of uncool girls she didn't invite.

You just know they're going to be playing dress-up, calling cute boys and hanging up, and making fat jokes at the uninviteds' expense.

The first time I heard of "Fox & Friends" I thought it was a kids' cartoon...

Come on! SURELY it's a fake news show, just like The Daily Show!

Um sorry, I guess the whole network is...
