Now Tell Me, 'Why Do You Watch Fox News Again?'

Good Day World!

If you follow Fox News I'd like to ask you a few questions.

Is that okay?

Me: Why do you watch Fox News?
Follower: For fair and balanced news coverage.
Me: I see. Like Sean Hannity?
Follower: Yeah.
Me: Here's the latest in Fox News embarrassment about Sean Hannity.

Me: What do you like about Fox News?
Follower: It's family values.
Me: Oh, I see. What about former Fox news host Andrea Tantaros?
Follower: What about her?
Me: She's sueing former network chief Roger Ailes and other top executives for sexual harassment - a poor reflection on family values don't you think?
Follower: I didn't hear about that. Are you sure that's true?
Me: Go to a real news channel and you'll see. You might even pick up a newspaper.

Me: What do you think about Global Warming?
Follower: It's a liberal hoax.
Me: A Standford University study has found "more exposure to Fox News was associated with more rejection of many mainstream scientists' claims about global warming, and with less trust for scientists."
Follower: I don't trust scientists' because they're all liberals.
Me: All of them? Climatologists and scientists?
Follower: No doubt about it. Fox says it's so.
Me: Okay. Thanks for stopping by.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
