image for Hurricane Gustav loses hype as it hits land
Fox News 'devastated'

TV news stations across the US have been left devastated by the effects of Hurricane Gustav as it singularly failed to destroy New Orleans.

"We are gutted" said Fox 'journalist' Adolf McCane "We had cameras focusing on the levees, we had helicopters ready to go but it just blew past and then fizzled out. It's a let down for us and it is a let down for our advertisers."

New Orleans residents are said to be relieved that their home town has not been used to fuel a ratings war.

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