Faux News and Irony: Strangers

Shares


One of the brightest stars in the Faux News universe offers up this gem today, in reference to the New York Times actually informing the public:

As for the lead story, there’s no doubt that it was The New York Times’ perceived anti-American bias. It may seem like a complicated debate to some, but to our viewers The Times was wrong to report that we have been monitoring the international banking records of suspected terrorists through Belgium.

Gosh, I wonder why it wouldn’t seem like a complicated debate to Faux viewers?

Of course, Mr. Kilmeade already seems to know the answers before he asks questions, perhaps explaining why the ‘debate’ is so easy to follow.
