The channel for folks who are logically challenged

Who cannot list thinking as one of their talents

The channel of shit

With news skewed to fit

Minds that are equally unfair and unbalanced


The channel of cartoons and bleach blonde news honeys

Beholden to all of them Koch brother’s monies

The channel of muck

With sitcoms that suck

Geared to the IQ’s of folks who read funnies

The channel of liars and twisters of fact

For people whose brains have never been wracked

Who’re eager to buy

Without asking why

(How dare they be ever accused of this act)


The channel of homophobes, bigots and racists

Gun freaks and religious right-wing nut cases

The tea party’s arm

With all of the charm

Of thugs mugging morons in alleys with maces

The channel that gives all the red states the scoop

Where all of the yahoos are put in the loop

Where fools like this Hannity

Spew their insanity

To the rubes who will happily jump through the hoop


The channel of phonies and genuine fakes

Where patriots rule and wave flags for God’s sakes

Who cheered us to war

On the lies they told for

Two criminals who were in bed with the sheiks


And the aging white males with one foot in the grave

Will tune in to get the red meat that they crave

And then echo the spew

Of this calumnious crew

At the land of debris and home of the knave

And now they are gearing to set sights on Hillary

A woman that Fox loves to smear and to pillory

And in setting those sights

They’ll climb to new heights

Of quack-ery, flack-ery, hack-ery and shill-ery

  1. Their motto should be “Liars and Assholes” instead of “Fair and Balanced.”

  2. Do you think that the Fox people don’t realize that they have become caricatures of themselves ? Figures of fun ?
    Nope, maybe not. They take themselves too seriously.

  3. On the bright side, their demographic is aging themselves into nursing homes and cemeteries.

    Watching fox is probably hastening their decay…
