Today's Oxymoron: Right-Wing Humor



The Partei's unofficial propaganda organ, Fox News, plans to challenge Comedy Central's Daily Show and Colbert Report. Of course, Fox already airs fake news 24/7, but unlike Jon Stewart's and Steven Colbert's shows, theirs is only occasionally (and unintentionally) funny.


So, now Fox is planning an allegedly satiric fake news program. Will it be funny? Well, Think Progress reports. You decide.


I'm reminded of a quote from the late, great Molly Ivins: "Satire is traditionally the weapon of the powerless against the powerful."


Somehow I don't think Fox is a friend of the powerless.
