In a move to ensure that The Onion News Network never runs out of material, Fox News has redesigned their studio to feature big-ass touchscreens that journalists can sit at and look like dickheads. According to the video, Fox believes this concept will be copied in other newsrooms and become “the norm.” Starting now, I’m only watching Fox News. This can only fail miserably and YOU KNOW we’re going to see porn on one of those screens eventually.

HBO Announced A Movie Based On Fox News, Then Said, “Nah.” http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/hbo-announced-a-movie-based-on-fox-news-then-said-nah/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/hbo-announced-a-movie-based-on-fox-news-then-said-nah/#comments Fri, 06 Jul 2012 15:33:52 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=249577 Psych!

Yesterday, news had spread that HBO was working on a film that would document the rise of Fox News, all while painting its fearless leader, Roger Ailes, in a negative light (if you could believe that!).

Well, today execs at HBO woke up with more than a few regrets, claiming that going forward with the project wouldn’t be appropriate, given the network’s ties to CNN. That seems like a bit of a fallacy, considering that the station has long been known to have ties to organized crime, but that didn’t keep them from moving forward with The Sopranos.

I guess this news means that if you want to hear anyone speak ill of Fox News, you’re just going to have to turn to 90% of your friends on Facebook.

Dark times, haters. Dark times indeed.

Yeah, Rupert Murdoch’s old, but turning into a wrinkly shapeless form is just a part of life at that age, so let’s all just get over it. What we shouldn’t, and can’t, get over is the state of Rupert Murdoch’s hands. They’re…weird. They are wrinkly on the palms. THE PALMS.

It’s easier to show what I’m talking about than it is to describe it. Note: Murdoch’s hands are one of those things you cant unsee, like childbirth or Stevie Wonder’s eyes.

Enjoy the gallery, folks.

‘The Lorax’ Is Brainwashing Our Kids Says Fox News http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-lorax-is-brainwashing-our-kids-says-fox-news/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-lorax-is-brainwashing-our-kids-says-fox-news/#comments Thu, 23 Feb 2012 16:00:59 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=245981 This is Obama's fault. Somehow.

Tim & Eric aren’t the only ones trying to get people not to go see The Lorax. Fox News cuckoo bird Lou Dobbs sat in front of a television camera and made the accusation that The Lorax is part of a conspiracy between Hollywood and President Obama to brainwash our children. Dobbs, a grown man who gets paid for what he does, asserts that The Lorax and a film called The Secret World of Arrietty were created to “indoctrinate” children into supporting pro-environmental causes and the Occupy movements.

Dobbs claims the liberal media is ignoring the secret messages of these films that are “plainly demonizing the so-called ’1 percent’ and espousing the virtue of green-energy policies, come what may.” That’s a pretty obtuse way of seeing things. These films, like many others, are simply about likable characters standing up to total dickheads. Yes, The Lorax does deal with characters fighting off deforestation but so did Ferngully and Avatar and Woody Woodpecker. Another kids film recently maligned by Fox News was The Muppets also took a stance against greed.

Since Lou Dobbs (who likely has gardeners and landscapers at his spacious mansion which he didn’t lose when the economy crumbled) hates the environment so much, can we move him out to the desert?

The Muppets Own Fox News http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/the-muppets-own-fox-news/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/the-muppets-own-fox-news/#comments Tue, 31 Jan 2012 16:10:54 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=244118 You can't shake showbizz pros.

Back when The Muppets had their new movie in theaters, Fox News attacked the film accusing it of being “liberal” and “anti-capitalism.” The accusations were lobbed toward the puppets because the film’s villain was depicted as an evil oil tycoon named “Tex Richman.” Big deal? Did Fox not also notice the talking eagle?

During a recent press conference in England, a reporter mentioned the Fox report to Kermit and Miss Piggy. Being the media-savvy swine that she is, Piggy (well, the person with her hand up Miss Piggy’s butt) absolutely shut down the cable news channel.

Take notes, Chelsea Handler. (via /Film)

Note: I honestly hate writing articles critical of Fox News. It’s not because I have any affinity for the network, but rather because doing so feels so cliché. Every Jon Stewart wanna be on the Internet is already going to jump all over whatever they say, so why should this two-bit Internet hack join the pile on? That said, sometimes they leave me no choice, so here we go. F**k you for making me write this, Fox News.

Finally, someone has the balls to nail those Muppet bastards right to the wall and expose them for the filthy leftists they are. In a recent segment, Fox News decried the latest Muppet movie for depicting a wealthy oilman as a villain, thereby indoctrinating a generation of children into the Marxist movement. First they take Manhattan, then they take Berlin.

Here’s a few of my favorite quotes from this hard-hitting news segment:

“The only thing green that should be up on that screen should be Kermit the Frog.”

BURN!

(Kids) have been indoctrinated for years by this kind of stuff.

No argument here. I’ve been sucking dick ever since I heard The Rainbow Connection at age 6.

“You wonder why we’ve got a bunch of Occupy Wall Street people walking around all around the country.”

In all fairness, the OWS people (if you consider them “people”) were doing a lot more sitting in one place than they were walking. And now that I think about it, have you ever seen Oscar the Grouch walk? Coincidence?

“I just wish liberals could leave little kids alone.”

God damn liberals like Jerry Sandusky need to stay away from my kids!

“They should have…the evil person be the Obama administration?”

Good idea, but I’m not very comfortable with my child being exposed to a black Muppet.

“Over the years they’ve gotten more liberal.”

Have you ever seen a picture of Jim Henson? He’s a god damn pinko if I’ve ever seen one.

Of course, to keep things fair and balanced, Fox’s token leftist straw man (who in this case, was a woman named Caroline Heldman) came in to confirm the grand Muppet conspiracy.

“You call it brainwashing, I call this education. It’s a shame they couldn’t have put up a financial services tycoon.”

Smooth move, Caroline. You blew the whole thing. Here’s a tip for anyone being asked to come on Fox News to stick up for a Democratic cause: If they’re asking you, it’s because you’re stupid. Don’t go (or do, I don’t care).

But perhaps the most insulting part of the whole segment is the fact that host Eric Bolling lifted a quote from Adam Carolla’s recent (and kind of awesome) anti-Occupy Wall Street rant.

Carolla’s rant:

It used to be, back in the day, father’d be walking his son down the sidewalk and you’d see a guy go by in a Rolls Royce and the father would say, “There goes Mr. Jenkins. Look up to him. That guy works hard. That guy built a company. That guy built an empire. Now look at him. He’s got his Rolls Royce.” Now it’s like, “Oh! Look at him. Does he need that car? Why does he need that car?”

Eric Bolling’s quote:

I remember when I was a little kid, we were poor, we were dead broke, in fact, and my parents would see someone wealthy driving by and be like, “See that guy, he started a business, he worked hard, you can be like that.” Not pointing the finger at Tex Richamn and saying “he’s a bad guy.”

If you want to bitch about Occupy Wall Street, more power to you. But at least be original (says the guy who just stole an article idea from Vulture).

Glenn Beck is gonna have to go back to the conspiracy drawing board, because his Fox News show is coming to an end. Who’s behind all this? NPR? The Obama Administration? We may never know.

Fox News struck a deal with Beck to bring an end to his 5 pm show, which was regularly the third highest rated show in cable news. At one point, his ratings were much higher, but the numbers have continuously been dropping, and creeped out advertisers have been pulling their sponsorships, which explains all the crying. Here’s a joint statement Fox News and Beck’s production company Mercury Radio Arts released on what he’ll do next:

“[We] will work together to develop and produce a variety of television projects for air on the Fox News Channel as well as content for other platforms including Fox News’ digital properties.”

So get excited for a bunch of crazy Glenn Beck soundboard iPhone apps. “Shut up, 9/11 victims,” “The President’s racist,” ”O-L-I-G-A-R-H-Y.” Coming soon.

Beck announced the end of days on his show in the above clip. He compares himself to American her Paul Revere and claims he “avoids confrontation” and doesn’t like conflict. Yup, that all checks out. (TheWrap)
