For the record, yes, Newsweek is still in business. The signage just ain't the same. [FK]

The Complete and Utter Idiocy of Fox News, Perfectly Summed Up in One Picture

A picture is, as they say, worth a thousand words. How many does it take Fox News to show how utterly awareness-lacking, blithe, glib, and asinine both the majority of the network's ethos -- and the average viewer who takes them at the word -- is?
