Fox News is just freaking out over the fact that people aren't relying on them as their sole information source.

The long lasting tradition of stating the obvious:
Vulpus Nuntii, Papal States, Lower Middle Ages: "Peasants using roads to travel"
Raposa Notícias, Lisbon, the late fifteen century: "Navigators using sea to discover new lands"
Foxen Notizien, Baviera, around the Lutheran Reform: "People using printed books to learn"
Renard Nouvelles, Paris, 1789: "Queen, nobles, using sarcasm to deny reality"
The Royal Fox News, London, 1845: "Industries using machines to produce goods"
Baby Fox and the Rainbow News, San Francisco, 1967: "Students using drugs to get high"

Not only do I use the internet to make major decisions, but most of my major decisions are ABOUT the internet.

All credit to nkyad, by the way, for loosely translating Fox News through the ages. I especially liked "Renard Nouvelles".

"Hey, uh listen there Ric [sic], ratings are down a bit this month to channel 7. Lets get you into this 'blog-ing' thing I'm hearin' so much about. Seems like that's our way to connect with the folks out there. We must keep local news relevant!"
