Fox: Just Don't Call it News

"Lily! Grandpa! I wanna! I wanna! I wanna" - the immortal Fred Gwynne

Via Atrios and Larry C. Johnson comes this brilliant screen-capture montage of Fox's propaganda spew over the last few years, created by Welcome to Pottersville.

A true must-view. Check it out now.

You always know it's bad, but you still shudder when you see it graphically like this.
