What's creepy about it is that FOX poses as a NEWS channel.  Most of it's programming is politicized BS.  To be fair CNN, MSNBC, etc. are guilty in their own right, but not to the degree of FOX, which is kind of like the shark-jumper of all 24-hour news channels.  If they want to start calling themselves a comedy channel, then I'm all for it.  Otherwise it's creepy.  I don't see what's hard to understand about the concept.  Conan, Kimmel, et al come on regular network television channels, which do not purportedly dedicate their entire existance to "NEWS," therefore they can play whatever they want without it being creepy.

 Except for Small Wonder and Alf.  Those were creepy but for different reasons.

Which explains why this show (apparently) airs at 3am ... how?

BTW - got a link for someone - anyone - at Fox saying  "Make your ratings. No excuses"   ? 

Again - if y'all would just stop making this about Fox and start holding people personally accountable for their words ...

Imagine if this was a show on MSNBC or CNN.  Where would your (insert-network) bleatings be then?

Given the bit you bolded, are you taking exception to the theory that news networks are as interested or MORE interested in entertainment that informing the public?  I'm pretty sure that's what you are saying, but I wanted to be sure...

Years ago, when i was consulting for GE medical, there was a rule for the managers:  you made your numbers every quarter.  No excuses.  You failed, you lost your job.  Period.

One quarter, one of the managers wasn't making his number.  He was sweating it.  So on March 27th, he sold all the repair inventory.  He made his number.  No matter that all the other divisions that needed repair parts were screwed.  He made his number.

Fox management says, "Make your ratings.  No excuses."  What happens after that is not their problem.    They can disclaim any responsibility.  So long as Mr. Murdock is happy with the numbers.

So no...they're not, um, directly involved...

Since I wasn't trying to say anything about Fox management, can I rephrase things to say that "we know that Fox staffers often make stuff up just to excite the base"? Can I, huh?

BTW, I'm sure that Rupert and his managers are pleased to have you standing ready to defend them.

*edit*  It's not likely that Fox management will take responsibility for anything. That's why Hannity, Beck and O'Reilly get away with the stuff they do.

Probably a comedic look at the news, or something. With Fox you never know. It could be a serious effort at news in the late hours of the day.

I wonder what the reaction would be if a Canadian show made comments like that about the US military?

The ignorance these bozos showed is really disappointing. But why are we surprised, we know that Fox makes stuff up just to excite the base.
