Kitty's Got Claws: Colbert Creates A Fake Twitter Hype Machine For Fox News

By Joanna Robinson | Miscellaneous | November 5, 2013 | Comments ()


Like most giant evil conglomerates, Fox News has a 24-hour PR machine, and an integral part of that ever-churning machine is the thousands of fake commenter accounts all over the internet ready to step up and defend Fox News at the slightest whiff of negative coverage. Big Todd? Is that you? Stephen Colbert, rabid and sincere advocate for Fox News that he is, decided to join the fun and set up a fake Twitter account that takes Rotten Tomatoes film reviews and replaces the names of the film or performers with Fox News shows and showmen.

Check out their fine handiwork:

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
