There are certain moments in life in which a person or group of people say something so dumb, that no matter how wrong or stupid it may be, you can’t look away. Today, Fox News provided us with one of those moments.
It's no surprise Ballghazi is taking over the cable news airwaves, but the national nets have sadly been too humble or afraid to utter the necessary term "ballsack." American patriot Sean Hannity's program is the home of real talk, though, and last night they just couldn't stop talking about ballsacks.
Fox Business Network attempted to report on Super Bowl ticket sales today with threats that "the NFL is expecting record-low attendance." That's not true, but somehow what reporter Elizabeth MacDonald went on to say got even stupider.
Television reporters who braved live coverage last night from Ferguson faced attacks from police (with tear gas) and protestors (with rocks and other objects). Here are some examples we witnessed last night.
The permafaced dipshits who comprise the cast of Fox & Friends decided to carve out a minute of this morning's show to talk about Ray Rice knocking out Janay Palmer in an elevator. They decided to end the segment with some jokes.
Mo'ne Davis, the 13-year-old girl who led her baseball team to the Little League World Series by being awesome and striking fools out, was a guest on this morning's episode of Fox & Friends. Naturally, co-host Eric Bolling seized on the opportunity to be annoying.
Kentucky head coach John Calipari appeared on The O'Reilly Factor tonight on Fox News, and managed to keep his cool despite a series of leading questions about the ability to maintain discipline in a "coarser" age of "rap stuff," "hip-hop stuff," and "hustlers."
Fox News has apologized for mistaking a replay of the 2013 Daytona 500 on Fox for this year's edition, which was at the time in a rain delay.
Roger Goodell appeared on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace and covered a wide range of topics. They discussed the weather, The Big Game, international expansion and, finally, player health. Notably, the Commish never uttered the words "concussion" or "head injuries."

And not just any baby! No, this is the very same baby whose awful shooting form somehow turned him into an internet sensation a few months ago.
Most of us learned that the manhunt for Dzhokar Tsarnaev was over via Twitter or by listening to online feeds of law enforcement radio. But for those watching at home, the suspenseful moment of his capture—and learning that he was alive—would be a memorable if complicated moment: somber in light of those allegedly…
We thought it was bad enough when Sean Hannity led off his Fox News program tonight with a montage of Boston Marathon devastation that looked and sounded like the trailer for a Bay/Bruckheimer collaboration. Then we learned where the music came from.
The shortest increments of time known to humanity are the following, beginning with the most brief:
It's been a weird night at Fox News, and it got even weirder in the moments after every network, wire service, and amateur mathematician called the election for President Obama. That's because Fox News contributor Karl Rove—who spent millions attempting to get Romney elected—bizarrely refused to accept his own…
Gather ‘round, my little dreamlets. Grandpa's going to sing of the days before every baboon with a wireless connection could vomit up a website and call it news. In those long-forgotten times, human beings would staff publications—magazines and newspapers, chiefly. But as audience habits and advertising money wandered…
Ray Allen is indeed in Miami talking over a possible deal to sign with the Heat, but the contract's far from signed. Don't tell Miami's Fox affiliate WSVN that, though, as they interrupted tonight's newscast to deliver the breaking news that Allen had signed a three-year, $11 million contract.
Elsewhere this would be called a chyronfail, but the juxtaposition of Donald Trump explaining his deep friendship with Tony La Russa to Greta Van Susteren makes it worth the video clip. Fox News has a long way to go to earn the "Cable News sports graphic blunder" title, though; that belongs to CNN's report on Derek…
When a Florida Panthers executive went on Fox News to talk about unemployment, he did what we'd all like to do, if we had no sense of decorum or shame: he macked on their anchor like nobody's business.
