image for Fox News Turns to Local Crime Reporting

New York, New York (IP) - Investigative reporters have learned that President Bush and the Iraq war have become so unpopular that Fox news and the Glenn Beck show have decided that reporting on those subjects would be detrimental to the Republican party and their chances of having a candidate elected in next year's presidential election.

Fox's strategy now is to report on local crime stories that are guaranteed to raise the ire of conservative viewers who would like to be seen as tough on crime. Fox searches their data base for stories like the one where some criminals committed rape and arson at a doctor's house. They spend hours on each story.

For them to say that the criminals were bad and did a bad or a horrible thing is like standing in the rain and saying, "Hey , look I am getting wet". They are now in the business of stating the obvious.

The same strategy has also been adapted by Glenn Beck. The self admitted recovering alcoholic TV talk show talking head feigned weeping over 9-11 victims on the third anniversary of that terrible event. Beck is a certified Bush sycophant.

The fact that these two separate news entities have chosen to focus on local crime makes it quite probable that they are being guided by Republican talking points as both have been nothing more than a mouthpiece for the neocon movement for years.

It is no longer convenient to report on Iraq nor on other international events where Bush has been consistently proven to be wrong and his mistakes are costing many American lives and wide spread hatred and disrespect for the United States. Bush's international failures have actually caused terrorism to grow rather than diminish.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
