Unless you slept through the day yesterday, you’d know that the big news (that wasn’t Britney-related) was that our government thwarted a potential terrorist attack on Los Angeles’ US Bank Tower in 2002. Go team!
Now, we didn’t cover it here– because like I said, it wasn’t Britney-related– but naturally all the real, credible news services did. And so did Fox News.
To illustrate how devastating this attack would have been, Fox did the only thing they could: they showed clips from the Will Smith/ Jeff Goldblum action flick Independence Day. Really. Seriously. They did. Honestly, I couldn’t make that up if I tried.
I know what you’re thinking: "Wow! That’s exploitative!" Or "They really crossed the line this time." Or "Hey! I haven’t seen that movie in a while, maybe I should Netflix it." Whatever. Well, guess what: you’re way off base. This is something that should be taken seriously. Because I trust Fox News, and if Fox News is insinuating that somehow the terrorists have enlisted the help of alien space ships to attack the United States of America, I believe them.
Fair and Balanced. And movie buffs. Fox News.
