Like most people, I think I always harbored a teeny tiny little bit of suspicion that Fox News is a big hoax. Some Magic Christian-like millionaire's idea of a hilarious joke to play on the world. Think about it. The actual Fox and Friends is sillier than the SNL parody of it. And are we really supposed to believe that Sean Hannity is non-animatronic?
But, because they were all so good at staying in character and keeping their poker faces in place, I continued on with the assumption that they were being straight. However, there's only so much I'm willing to swallow, and this quote from Fox News co-founder Roger Ailes definitely shows their hand…
"It's day to day for us," Ailes tell us. "We don't — I know no one believes it — we have no agenda. If he runs into a burning building tomorrow and saves four kids, he's gonna be the biggest goddamn hero Fox News ever saw. But if he leaves four guys behind on the battlefield but can't explain it, then he's gonna have a problem with Fox News."
"I don't mind praising the guy and I don't mind questioning the guy," says Ailes. "It's day to day."
Alright, alright, you got me. You got all of us. But this time you went too far. Nobody is going to believe that quote is for real. So, how about you take off that ridiculous costume and make-up and show us who you really are? Is that you, Ashton Kutcher?
