Fox And Friends were so out of ideas yesterday that they invited three children — two eleven year olds with college degrees and a home-schooled fourteen year old with loud opinions — to argue about such topics as school choice on their show. The two prodigies were polite and mature in offering their solutions, but the other kid waved his arms wildly, spouted hackneyed right-wing talking points, and even called Obama “Barack HUSSEIN Obama.” If the point was to show that children (or a child) can be as big of an ass on Fox News as the adults, well, that worked. I have the urge to slap this child, therefore Fox News is where he belongs.
It’s like something out of the Daily Sh— oh, wait, it WAS on The Daily Show. As a joke! Great Moments In Punditry, As Read By Children:
|The Daily Show With Jon Stewart||Mon – Thurs 11p / 10c|
|Great Moments in Punditry – Catholics Run Hollywood|
Fox And Friends imitates The Daily Show, five years late and not as a joke. That sounds about right. (Thanks for the tip, Alex!)
