Things turned kind of awkward when closed captioning though “Dzhokhar Tsarnaev” sounded a lot like for “Zooey Deschanel.”
While the spelling could not have been any more different, seeing a 19-year-old Zooey Deschanel pop up in the news must have been quite surreal.
But to be fair, there were A LOT of unconfirmed reports being spread around during the coverage of this story. So who really knows WHAT Fox 4 Breaking News was intending??
Usually, people make fun of FOX News for various reasons. But this week, FOX 5 actually brought legitimate happy tears to viewers when an anchor bolted off set. The reason? His wife randomly went into labour when the show was being taped. Cue the awww’s.
But what makes the moment so cute is the guest’s refusal to drop the topic of the newborn. Mandy Patinkin, aka Gideon from Criminal Minds, has the cutest reaction to the news of the baby. Instead of making the interview about him, he rejoices for others for the rest of the show.
Bill O’Reilly, aka no one’s favourite TV host, needed to bring in a psychologist to drop some truth bombs about the meaning behind Psy’s ”Gangnam Style.” After all, it’s the most watched music video on YouTube, even surpassing The Biebs, which apparently means it has to have some deep meaning.
I can’t figure out who I feel more sorry for, good ol’ Bill for sounding less relevant than ever by calling Psy a “Little Fat Guy from Yongyang” or Dr. Keith Ablow, the psychologist who starts off his analysis by saying “Gangnam Style” has no recognizable words. Maybe the awareness that languages besides English exist isn’t necessary for psychologists, but NEWSFLASH, “Gangnam Style” has lots of words, they’re just in this other language called Korean.
The best part is Ablow’s
brilliant conclusion that “Gangnam Style” is popular because “people don’t want any meaning.”

fair and balanced people at Fox News were attempting to do a serious interview with a newly graduated college student about (surprise) why he’s now supporting Mitt Romney instead of Barack Obama. The interview by Fox and Friends’ Gretchen Carlson, was supposed to be all about how recent grads who are struggling to find jobs are swapping their vote, but it became pretty clear that interviewee Max Rice was there to prank the show. Meanwhile, all Rice wanted to talk about was how he couldn’t believe he finally made it to prime time and was talking to Miss USA Miss America.
While most of the propagandists at Fox are probably shaking their almighty heads like they’ve been wronged, we think this guy is genius. The whole interview shows 1) How uninformed the reporting on Fox is 2) How some people will base their votes on insignificant reasons like losing a basketball game.
Watch it here:
It’s always hilarious to see that someone doesn’t take their job too seriously. During a traffic report on FOX news, the tech guy thought it would be funny to replace the mapped out green screen behind the reporter, with a live video of their other news correspondent. After that, looks like they both let loose and threw in a little Carlton dance.
Gawker reports Fox acknowledges the hack but couldn’t access and remove the Tweets for hours. The Huffington Post reports a hacker group claimed responsibility for the hoax, with a link to their own Twitter account.
Fox News wrote in a statement that it “regrets any distress the false tweets may have created.”
So if they linked to their own Twitter account, doesn’t that suggest they can easily be identified, and arrested? There must be a ton of laws they broke from hacking a Twitter account, to falsifying reports that the President is dead.
According to TMZ, the incorrigible Joan Rivers was cancelled from a scheduled appearance on the Fox show, Fox & Friends.
The loud-mouth fashionista believes her cancellation is the product of comments she made to TMZ regarding Sarah Palin. Rivers placed partial blame on Palin for the Arizona shootings while also referring to Palin as “stupid and a threat.” Rivers was scheduled to appear on Fox tomorrow to promote her new show that she is starring in with her daughter Melissa, Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?
Fox is insistent upon the fact that their decision to cancel Joan had nothing to do with the comments she made but rather that they overbooked the show and accidentally cancelled Joan’s appearance rather than courteously rescheduling it.
Knowing Fox, one of the most conservative news channels, their story seems a little fishy. Joan may be out of line in her comments, but she is known for explicitly stating what everyone else is thinking. The River runs wild! The comments are in no way unexpected and Fox should be aware of who their guests on the show will be instead of canceling them at the last minute.
