Even Muppets Hate Fox News

It’s no surprise to regular visitors to the disinformation site that we generally take every opportunity to point out just how biased and unfair Fox News Channel truly is (and of course we distributed the classic dissection of FNC, Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch’s War on Journalism), but should children’s TV shows on public television do the same?

    Sure, why not.

    Are we supposed to play “let's pretend Fox is News in front of the kids” … just to be POLITE?

    This is a good point. Grouches would logically watch news about garbage and pox, so this shouldn’t really be taken as scoring points off Fox News. (Plus, GNN is a clear parody of CNN, which is not beholden to the Republican party as much as Fox and it was while Oscar was reporting the the CNN clone that the ruling class was literally kissing him.)

    Don’t make me analyze and justify the political logic of Sesame Street gags.

    Is it possible that “Pox News” and “Garbage News Network” is just a joke and not some sort of conspiracy?
