Jon Stewart busts one of Rupert Murdoch’s Stepford wives, Megyn Kelly, on Fux News’ use of Nazi comparisons
Starring an ensemble cast of Fux regulars: Ms. Kelly, William O’Really, Glenn Blech, Sean Insanity, Burnee Goldberg, Greta Van Cistern, Scammy Bruce, Herr Rove, and a special cameo appearance by Gunther the News Pigeon delivering the poop on Roger What Ailes Ya.
Maybe poor Megyn didn’t get the memo that the techs at Fux hadn’t yet figured out a way to make videos of their shows self-destruct after being broadcast. Or that Stewart has been watching them daily for the last twelve years. Or that Media Matters has been archiving them for six.
Meanwhile at Fux News Headquarters, Frau Kelly reads a prepared statement denying their constant use of Nazi comparisons.
More likely, the people at Fux just don’t care, since their main goal is to keep their viewers in a constant state of
low high boil agitation, consuming cognitive resources that would otherwise be available for, say, fact checking and reflection.
Murdoch lost a half billion dollars before Fux reached break-even. The man obviously knows the value of controlling a political narrative. Kinda like that outfit that Fux is always comparing its opposition to.
