What? Insane Fox News Reporters Lambast 'The LEGO Movie' as Anti-Capitalist Propaganda

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | February 9, 2014 | Comments ()


The villain in the wonderful, already hugely successful The LEGO Movie (which made $70 million this weekend at the box office) is a guy named President Business (Will Ferrell), who basically runs LEGO world. I wouldn’t call the character that much of a villain, but that doesn’t stop Fox News from suggesting that the film is indoctrinating our children with anti-capitalist messages by featuring him as the antagonist (clearly, the people at Fox News haven’t seen The LEGO Movie).

But that doesn’t stop the Fox News machine by throwing around words like “hypocrisy,” “indoctrination,” “the far left,” and “Hollywood agenda,” while defending corporations and their CEOs and also attacking Hollywood for thinking about nothing except the bottom line (WHICH IS CAPITALISM).

I don’t suppose that anyone wants to remind Fox News that The LEGO Movie was also created by a giant corporate toy company and a giant corporate movie studio, do they?

Fox News is the worst.

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)
