Posts Tagged ‘Fox News’

It had to happen sometime.  A business can only pose as a news agency for so long until someone says the equivalent of, “Hey, the Emperor’s not wearing any clothes!”  Today the bees are buzzing around the hive at Fox pretending to be caught off guard by a slam from the White House that simply says that Fox News is not really a news organization at all.  The fake outrage at Fox, the fake consternation, the fake “Who me?” attitude certainly is no surprise – it is what people like Glenn Beck do best.  The real question we should be asking is this: How long will the true believers, the people who have swallowed Fox’s aberration that poses as factual news, take before they awaken from their trance and recognize they have been badly misled by a bunch of paid carnival barkers?

Once upon a time, as I recall, Fox was a legitimate news organization.  That was a long time ago, but as I recall they were pretty good. They were certainly providing good competition to CNN.  However, somewhere along the line they made a right turn and veered off the highway into the swampland of Glennbeckia.  In Glennbeckia nothing is quite as it seems.  There are monsters under the sofa and vampires lurking in your bedroom.  In Glennbeckia everything that used to be true is now false and everything that was false is true. It’s like some awful inebriated dream from which you want to awaken but you are afraid to because you might miss some news about an even more virulent threat to the planet.

The minions of Lord Murdoch are not complete lunatics though.  Though they are now misshapen wraiths of their former selves – having been exposed for too long to the evils of the massive, groaning, hissing organs of the bloated propaganda machine housed in the bowels of Fox News, they still retain a clever cunning.  They know that even their most moronic, soporific victims will quickly awaken to reality if all they spew onto the airwaves is the stench of fetid corruption.  Clever in their deviousness, they deliberately mix in real news with their diabolical distortions of reality. “Here, my little dearies, they cackle.  Drink this, you’ll like it!”

And so they do every day. Mixing a toxic witches brew of information and misinformation, straight talking extreme right-wing radicals along with the confused, moronic babbling that bubbles forth from the darkness of Glennbeckia.  Fox News, or should I call it Foxy News, formerly a proud name in the news business, is now but now a lowly, slinking inhabitant of the shadows, held in thrall in the halls of Lord Murdoch.  Today they have been scratched by the sword of the White House, today the pure bright light of logic and reason illuminates the horror that lies in the basement of Fox News.  Hidden from view, the gargantuan propaganda machine hisses and steams, while boiling liquids of greenish ooze slop from a giant stinking cauldron of mucosal detritus which is then distilled into Essence of Vile Reporting and Vapor of Vapid Opinions.

It isn’t too late Fox.  Go back.  Turn away from the darkness and look to the light!  Save your immortal soul from the certain damnation that awaits those who deliberately lead the Children of the Light astray! Even Glenn Beck can be saved!  No…no…wait a minute.  I’m not so sure of that. Let me check….  Yes. No, sorry Glenn, it’s the fire for you.  Can’t be helped, you know.  But the rest of you at Fox – you who have been so deceived and are now a part of an even greater deception.  Can’t you see?  You have been outed!  The whole world knows now! Your denials mean nothing, nothing!  Leave the cursed land of Glennbeckia, come back to your senses, regain your pride in presenting the truth!  Turn away from the darkness and follow the light!

All except you Glenn, you and your Lord Murdoch are beyond redemption.
