"It’s how (Fox News) covers the Affordable Care Act — with a fair and balanced mashup of Obamacare, contagion, and The Walking Dead credits.”

— AL MADRIGAL, The Daily Show

Corrections on “Fox & Friends.”

  • Game Of Thrones is not an adult version of musical chairs.
  • Malaysia is not the female version of Asia.
  • You cannot abbreviate the Supreme Court to spell SCROTUM.
  • Michael Strahan is not leaving to go be in Good Morning Vietnam.
  • Crimea is not related to Queen Latifah.
  • Pop Tarts do not cause “splosions.”
  • Boeing is a company.  Not a sound effect.
  • Pharrell is not a “stylish hand sanitizer.”
  • Chiclets do not grow up to be roosters.
  • Chris Christie was never in the show Three’s Company.
  • Life Savers aren’t medicine.
  • Captain Phillips is not a brand of rum.
  • Noah is not “found footage.”
  • Captain America was never a U.S. president.
  • The Periodic Table is not about “lady stuff.”
Thank God for Bobby Moynihan’s Brian Kilmeade.

Surely the folks at CNN — and perhaps Fox “News” and MSNBC — saw The Daily Show and The Colbert Report last night and cringed while watching questionable Flight 370 coverage ruthlessly mocked by Jon and Stephen because Christ, the past two weeks have just been an embarrassment to watch.

Isn’t it amazing that the same folks that run a “news” division catering to the willfully ignorant are bringing us a primetime TV show all about science?
And don’t give me no bullshit ‘bout Fox “News” and Fox Entertainment being wholly separate entities.

Via Media Matters, how a local TV news anchor calls out conservatives for their ignorant complaints about Coke’s multilingual Super Bowl ad:

…The fact that people are outraged over this ad is outrageous itself. People indignant that others would have the audacity to sing ‘America the Beautiful’ in a language other than English, when America was built on opening its arms to the world? The quote on the Statue of Liberty doesn’t say ‘give me your English-speaking only, Christian-believing, heterosexual masses.’ It says ‘give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses, tempest-tost.’

Have we forgotten that every one of us ‘Americans’ except for Native Americans, are descendants of foreigners?

That the English language is from England?

…”America the Beautiful,” in any language, is still America the beautiful.
