of course, they missed one.

Fox News . . . what can one say?

I haven't watched even one second of Fox News in years and I honestly don't know if these are real or a parody.

You're not going to hear me argue that Fox's editorial standards are anything above shitty, but shouldn't a "study" lead to some sort of conclusion? All this tells me is that Fox uses a lot of words on-screen. Oh, and that Cavuto is crazy nuts.

I thought it meant "study" in the artistic sense.

The conclusion is rather obvious. Fear mongering.

Fox News is crazy and 3100 × 4700 mosaics of randomly sized, randomly placed screen grabs are a poor way to present information. What else is new?

Didn't the Daily Show do a bit on this several years ago? FOX adds a question mark to any of their ridiculous insinuations to avoid accusations of lying and fear-mongering - and for some reason no one's called them on it yet.

Here's the bit.

I'm trying to pick a favorite, either "Is Mr. Rodgers ruining kids?" or "100 hours to turn America into San Francisco." But I just saw another gem..."The Best President?" under a picture of Bush. Colbert doesn't even need to change that one.

What the hell is a "TANG BOMB"? Should we be warning our astronauts?

I don't know why anyone takes Fox seriously.

The far right is even more batshitinsane than I thought!

What the hell is a "TANG BOMB"?

Liquid explosives that resemble juice, Tang or Gatorade if you only see them in a clear plastic bottle. It's why you can no longer carry a bottle of water past airport security.

I though "TANG BOMB" is what you did to other players if you pwned them in Halo 3.

It's even worse on their official fansite/blog/whatever, Fox Nation. The current front page headline:

Treason? House Passes Direct Assault on Industrial Base of America

What the hell is a "TANG BOMB"
It's an Anglicisation. It was originally "WU-TANG BOMB"

Something something left wing smears something something terrorists will kill you, dems love terror.

Left wing smear follows: there was a time, according to the photographic evidence presented, when nothing Bill O'Reilly said was overshadowed by his jowls.

As a collage it's good, as a way to make a point it's ok-to-mediocre.

It does look like a parody of some kind though. I mean, half those titles are just laughable. aren't they?

You know when you've been Tang-bombed.

A Tang Bomb is when you take a glass of Irish whiskey and drop a shot of Tang into it, then CHUG.

That's what we call upchug. You don't even tell it goodbye because you know it's coming back.

Suzanne Somers is the Tang Bomb.

I read 'Subtleties,' then wrestled with the cognitive dissonance.

I'll stick with the CBC, thank you.

I had thought this topic might discuss the questionable merits of YELLOW vs. WHITE in foreign films.
