1. Fox v. The Lorax. In an effort to demonstrate how it’s the biggest kid on the playground, the news network took on yet another children’s movie. Lou Dobbs went on the offensive saying that The Lorax “is once again trying to indoctrinate our children" and that it is "demonizing the 1% and espousing green energy policies.” Matt Patrick even chimed in, saying that the movie “is creating Occu-toddlers.” Boom. Occupy the sandbox!
Yet no one at is concerned about the sexual imagery of Zac Efron, the idol of a thousand little Occu-tweens, dropping a condom on the red carpet. Where’s the outrage there? He was practically promoting safe sex! I’m disappointed Megyn Kelly hasn’t rallied the “Parents Outraged At Everything” group and called for Lorax’s head.

    It took them a couple of months, but The Muppets have formally responded to Fox Business’ claims that they were brainwashing kids into hating big oil companies. (Which, mind you, they later apologized for.) Kermit’s take? “And besides, if we have a problem with oil companies, why would we have spent the entire film driving around in a gas-guzzling Rolls Royce?” 

    Gretchen Carlson is having a full hog roast on a spit tonight because of this.

    The Muppets can do no wrong. (Well aside from that awful appearance on Project Runway All Stars.)

  3. If you dive into the weeds a little bit on this global warming thing, you see that it seems that facts are certainly on Huntsman’s side on all of this and fact checkers have come out, and we’re actually having our own brain room look at this right now and any of Perry’s comments don’t seem to hold a lot of water.

    1. Did Fox just acknowledge the existence of climate change?
    2. What is a brain room?
    3. Did Fox just support Huntsman OVER Perry?

  4. Research shows that conservative white males are the most likely to reject the scientific consensus on climate change.

    The Guardian reports the demographic was more than twice as likely than other adults to say the media exaggerated seriousness of climate change.

    I feel like there is a right wing, GOP, Fox News joke in here somewhere. 

  5. They are both victims of being in the same sentence of the word hacked.
