    GOP hacks don't even realize they're the props.

    Fox sells anger porn. Just as the Daily Show and Colbert are comedy shows that happen to focus on politics, Fox sells fear, it just happens to be politically focused.

    Fox gives the Grampa Simpsons an opportunity to yell at their televisions at the outrage-du-jour. Republican politicians are simple props to sell the "truthiness" of the manufactured controversy.

    How many members of Congress believed there was a "war of Christmas" until Fox created it? Or that a stylized atom logo contained an Islamic crescent moon?
