Fox is Not News

This is unintentionally hilarious.

Fox went to a local diner looking for average Joe, ordinary Real Americans outraged about an EPA employee looking at pornography but all they could find was a couple Fox employees.

The diner is a place “where you do get a great cross-section of people living in the New York metropolitan area,” Rivera said.

But among those everyday people were a couple of folks who might have been recognizable to Fox’s most loyal viewers: Fox Business hosts Charlie Gasparino and Lori Rothman. The pair wasn’t identified on screen by their names or titles, though, giving the impression that they were just two commoners having a meal.


As you might have guessed, House Oversight Chairman Darrell “Witch Hunt” Issa is very concerned about one employee out of 16,000 watching porno. Don’t be surprised if this comes up again.

    The funniest part of the story:

    If you don’t count yourself among Fox Business’s tiny audience, you may not have recognized either Gasparino or Rothman. It wasn’t until after [Geraldo] Rivera showed the footage on Thursday afternoon that Gretchen Carlson identified the pair as fellow Fox dwellers.

    “Somehow Charlie Gasparino and Lori Rothman from Fox Business Network — ” Carlson said before being cut off by Rivera.

    “Well, we snagged a lot of them,” Rivera said. “They’re right next door.”

    Yeah, that’s some real grassroots fury they got themselves right there.
