The Simpsons Blasts Fox News


The Simpsons Blasts Fox News

Years before South Park perfected the artform, Matt Groening’s The Simpsons was already a master of subtle and not so subtle irreverence towards its host channel. Last Sunday, the show reminded us of this fact as it blasted its host channel’s Fox News during the network’s 25th anniversary special programming. The bit came towards the end of a re-run of the Simpsons’ first episode, when an end card congratulating the network was showing during the credits:

The Simpsons Blasts Fox News

The show was never really one to shy away from airing its grievances with Fox News, but Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly did not take the dig well, re-airing the clip during his program and commenting that the show was “continuing to bite the hand that feeds part of it” and that Fox “allows its cartoon characters to run wild.”

There’s no word on whether Mr. Reilly was really infuriated at the fairly harmless dig at the news agency (note, not at Mr. Reilly), or if it was a planned response as a way of selling the joke.

The following two tabs change content below.
