Fox Vs. Fox

Jan 9th, 2012

Fox News gets another kick in the pants from The Simpsons. Via Mediaite:

"The premise of the episode is that Homer has become a viral internet video sensation after Bart uploads footage of him having an Alec Baldwin-esque airplane meltdown.

His YouTube stardom earns him a spot as a commentator on cable news show HeadButt, with commentary from Adriatica Veljohnson (a not-too-subtle jab at Arianna Huffington). Homer goes off script, and claims to speak for “those real people out there who buy their coffee from the mini-mart and grab enough sugar packs for a week. Honest, hardworking, sugar-stealing Americans!”

Cable news executives are so endeared by Homer’s folksiness — saying he is the “ill-informed gas bag that networks cannot get enough of” — that they decide to give him his own show, Gut Check!"

The video cannot be embedded, unfortunately.
