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.

Jessica Simpson’s very best friend in the world, CaCee Cobb, was spotted getting hot and heavy with Simpson-ex Nick Lachey at an LA nightclub.
"The two were all over each other," says the eyewitness, who knows both Nick and CaCee. "Nick had his arms wrapped around her, and he was kissing her all over the side of her face…"
Sure it’s a betrayal but can you blame her? Nick is one amazing side-of-the-face kisser.
