Fox News Names White House Shooting Suspect 'Occupy Shooter'
Remember yesterdaywhen we were all making satirical jokes about how Fox News would call the angry bum arrested for allegedly shooting at the White House some symbol of the #OccupyWallStreet protests? Well, that happened. Today. The turnaround time for Satire-to-Actual Fox News Report has hit an all-time low of about ten hours.
Media Matters gets up early to videotape this absurdity:
Fox & Friends claimed that alleged White House shooter Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez had been "tied to [the] Occupy" movement, even calling him the "'Occupy' shooter." In fact, investigators have reportedly "found no connection between him and the Occupy protesters."
Haha, they even dragged terror-porn b-lister Michelle Malkin out of mothballs to basically read our post from yesterday, with a straight face.
Incredible! Or, not. In any case, that's the story today in the Alternate Universe of Old People In Their Nearly-Foreclosed Homes: The pro-Obama hippies at the #OccupyDC camp are actually anti-Obama assassins. Good to know! And maybe it will become true someday, if enough cops crush enough innocent skulls, right? Gah. [Media Matters]
