The Simpsons Slam Fox News [VIDEO]
May 21, 2007
The Simpsons is arguably the most subversive TV show to ever achieve the status of pop culture institution. Because of its nearly 20 years of popularity and more important, profitability, the show has been able to ridicule its network more than any other TV program would ever dare to. Last night was no exception. During its heavily promoted 400th episode, Homer, Lisa and Springfield anchorman Kent Brockman launched into a discussion about Fox News as a hilarious parody of the cable channel, featuring a Rush Limbaugh inspired caricature played on their TV set. Lisa wonders how a network infamous for tasteless programming (Temptation Island anyone?) can at the same time have a news network that complains about a lack of morality in media. Kent Brockman supplies the answer in the clip to your right, and it's a classic--as is this show.
