Gawker's other intern, Neel, went press conference for Robert Greenwald's "Outfoxed" documentary and came back with startling revelations: "83% of their partisan guests are Republicans! They regularly alter copy to make the war in Iraq more palatable! Special Report's Brit Hume and Bill O’Reilly hate gays and liberals!" And Greenwald's stunning prediction: "[I]ndependent media is, like, totally important in society, lest we end up a totalitarian state in which 'ranting, raving, and an emphasis on cheap news' will replace actual journalism." Don't forget wildly opinionated, uninformed amateurs who just make shit up!
Speaking of making shit up: I swear the following is true.
Time: July 8, 4PM-ish
Place: Outside the Fox building on 6th Ave.
Scene: Fox News political reporter Carl Cameron, preparing for a stand-up. (Unclear as to why 6th Ave. would make better backdrop than a studio, or if they were planning on admitting he was a block away.) Anyhow: For his mic check, I can't be sure, but it really sounded like Cameron said, "Pubic hair, pubic hair, pubic hair."
Most people go with 5-4-3-2-1. Maybe it's a Clarence Thomas homage? Whatever. At least some aspect of Fox is liberal, right?
