Red Eye: New "news" show on Fox is laughable
March 24, 2007 1:34am CST
So I'm sitting here at 1:30 in the morning with the TV on and Fox goes from it's uptight, stuffed shirt mode into something different. There are young people on and they're saying words you don't normally hear on Fox. It looks like they're getting a real thrill out of being naughty. And kind of like they're having to really reach to contrive situations so that they can be naughty. 'Cause being racy on TV is fun! It was the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen. This show is a transparent fear reaction to The Daily Show and The Colbert Report and even Keith Olbermann. It's so obvious they're realizing too late that their audience is mostly elderly conservatives who don't need to be preached to because they wouldn't change their minds about anything if their life depended on it. The people whose opinions are up for grabs, younger people, are off being seduced by the evil liberals and Fox is about to be left in the dust. So they desperately assemble a crew of young robots and instruct them to be hip immediately! LOL, it was so sad and yet so pathetically amusing (but not in the way they meant to be).
