If you’re a fan of satirical news, but hate the way the Daily Show and Colbert Report are always, like, pointing out the illegal things the current administration is caught doing, then Fox News might have just the thing for you.
Fox News Channel might air two episodes of a “Daily Show”-like program with a decidedly nonliberal bent on Saturday nights in late January, with the possibility that it could become a weekly show for the channel.
The half-hour show is executive produced by “24′s” Joel Surnow and Manny Cota and creator Ned Rice, who previously wrote for “Politically Incorrect” and “Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson” through This Just In Prods. It would take aim at what Surnow calls “the sacred cows of the left” that don’t get made as much fun of by other comedy shows.
Wow, can you imagine that. Brit Hume meets Craig Ferguson. The mind reels at such a comedic juggernaut? I’m laughing already.
What makes this particularly awesome, is that it really silences those critics of Fox News who questioned the news station’s much-ballyhooed objectivity after it was caught sending out a memo to employees telling them to “be on the lookout for any statements from the Iraqi insurgents, who must be thrilled at the prospect of a Dem-controlled congress.”
Take that you gay, liberal, not-troop-supporting cynics!
