Pox Noise Taken To The Woodshed

Joseph Amann and Tom Breuer, authors of "Sweet Jesus, I Hate Bill O'Reilly", have a book out now that's going to be my summer reading list for sure.
"Fair and Balanced, My Ass!: An Unbridled Look at the Bizarre Reality of Fox News" is certain to be good fun.

"But Fox can be frustrating, too, because its employees are so unswervingly dedicated to denying their true nature. If your local weatherman dressed up as a Viking every day, called himself Hjørt Bjornsen, and told you there was a 60 percent chance of snow flurries and a 30 percent chance that Thor would rain fire and canned hummus from the sky during midmorning rush hour -- all the while claiming he absolutely was not dressed as a Viking -- eventually it would stop being cute. That's essentially what it feels like to be sane and reasonably intelligent and tuned in to Fox News. It's hard to look away, because there's a guy on TV making a complete ass of himself while saying obviously untrue things. But it would be nice to get the forecast every once in a while."

Didn't realize they'd written another one. I'm ordering. Sweet Jesus... was one of the funniest books ever.

Good to know that, thanks, I'll look forward to that one too.
