Response to SummerSnow (Original post)

11. The whole news parody they do.

They simulate basically all of the motifs and components of authentic news programming. They have "anchors." They have a "crawl." They even throw in fact-based stuff like sports and the weather to add to the authenticity of the charade. You will never catch them "breaking" or laughing at the audience—at least openly. It's a masterly display of self-control, completely shameless Zen-like lying. They even have "fact checking." There is no more brilliant, consistent display of raw, dishonest propaganda than Fox News. There should be an Emmy category.
