The Simpsons Slam Fox News PART II [VIDEO]


In the video to your right, Springfield's Republicans (which include villain Mr. Burns and a vampire) watch from their evil tower on high, as anchorman Kent Brockman tells some very real truths to the camera, Edward R. Murrow-style. Of course The Simpsons don't want to be too preachy and self important, so Brockman eventually sells out to the corporate suits he'd been decrying. Nevertheless, it's extraordinary that an animated TV show, once dismissed as kids' stuff, would have such intelligent and bold things to say about the media and its own network.
