Did Barack Obama purposely create a firestorm around the decision to force religious institutions provide birth control in their employee health plans in order to derail Mitt Romney's campaign? Confused? Eric Bolling of Fox News' The Five helpfully explains, sort of.
Cable "news" is a jungle. Entertaining, tacky, loud, opinionated, silly? Yep. Journalism? No way. Especially in prime time the hosts of these shows are clowns whose only job is to get like-minded viewers to lap up what's put in front of them. Cable Kooks skewers this faux-news whether it's on Fox, MSNBC, CNN or even Current. We watch cable news so you don't have to. To quote John Hodgman, "you're welcome."
