Pulitzer-Prize-winning editorial cartoonist for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Mike Luckovich, has brilliantly encapsulated in a prescient image both Fox News as an institution and the reason for its downfall.

In snarky, predictive fashion, Luckovich astutely projects all that right-wing punditry has left: outrage generation. But his cartoon does more than that. By using absurdism, Luckovich also reveals this truth: conservative outrage generation as an effective means of directing public discourse is dead.

And so is Fox News.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
