FOX News Agrees to Add Satire Disclaimer

It is hoped the satire disclaimer will deflect legal issues raised by the constant lies, hate speech and abusive hyperbole.

FOX News came under fire in the past for such tactics as labeling disgraced Republicans as Democrats, sponsoring radical movements like the famously disjointed Tea Parties, and for hiring emotionally unstable individuals like Glenn Beck, papa bear Bill O’Reilly and the entire cast of Fox & Friends.

It was believed by many at FOX that the satirical element was self-evident. The blatant disregard for facts, intensely anti-American sentiment and the clown shoes worn daily by Sean Hannity were all expected to make the point obvious, but having the least savvy demographic in the history of television has worked against them.

When FOX News paid G. Gordon Liddy to weigh in on whether or not Deep Throat was an American hero, that was powerful satire, but many failed to see the irony. Likewise when they hired disgraced war criminal Oliver North, best known for selling illegal arms to hostile nations, few FOX viewers had the ability bat an eye. And that character Brit Hume does borders on absurd.

"When we say Obama is a racist Muslim, some people think we’re either kidding or actually that stupid. We just have to set the record straight for both legal and practical purposes.”
Fox News Public Relations representative Meaghan Atwater
