Fox. We all pretty much know that your reporters are delusional, bigoted, excessively opinionated, hypocritical, irrational, corrupt, and above all simply poor journalists.
But this is just…fucking retarded.
90% of the time when you see anyone making fun of Fox it’s either based on misinformation, or an outright falsehood. Liberals in the media have convinced themselves that if they can keep people making fun of Fox no one will care that they are just as bad if not worse. It’s how people like Jon Stewart make their living, and it’s worked here, once again.
Just 5 little minutes was enough to discover this is, yet again, overblown hokum. Play4Real. An unashamedly biased little video game blog that enjoys making up news stories to draw in readers because it sucks at reviews. I mean, come on people. It’s literally making this stuff up.
“Hasselbeck: Cult racism, cult violence, it never ends with these video games. We all thought Mario was fun and games until Mario became a dark soul and started killing people.”
That’s a quote they made up. They got a real picture from Fox news and linked it to completely fabricated quotes while presenting it as a real story. Their readers apparently bought it and started spreading it.
Fox news had a legal annalist who was talking about Miranda Barbour’s supposed confession, in which she claimed to have killed 22 people after being accepted into a satanic cult at age 13. THAT is what "Satanic Spree", "cult inspired her to kill" are referring to. Nothing to do with Dark Souls, everything to do with her claim of a real satanic cult.
The reason there’s a picture of dark souls is because it was mentioned briefly while talking about the investigation. You know how insanity is kind of important in these types of cases? Well in the actual investigation the police got into her Facebook account where they discovered she had an obsession with fantasy and fantasy video games, Dark Souls in particular. An obsession with fantasy or an inability to differentiate between fantasy and real life is kind of important when you’re talking about a killer who is supposedly trying to play out Dexter in real life and making up imaginary satanic cults.
Dark Souls wasn’t blamed for anything, merely mentioned while talking about the possibility that she is insane. Fox news did nothing wrong and it did nothing “fucking retarded”. If you want to blame someone blame the police for mentioning Dark Souls in their investigation. Or better yet, we could laugh at some actual retards.
Like CNN, perhaps.
Or CNN’s favorite criminal and idiot, who actually thinks video games create killers like Breivik, Holmes and Lanza.
Has Fox done stories on video games relating to violence? Sure they have. Every news station on the air has done this. It’s not new, it’s not only Fox. All of our media is garbage. Fox news is a handy little distraction that the liberal media uses to keep people from noticing they’re blindly following a different brand of idiocy.
Long winded rant over.
