Fox News is such an easy target to bash – totally deserved, but easy. Now The Colbert Report brings a hilarious fresh spin, by Tweeting out comments from positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, substituting Fox News shows and names for the movies. Works perfectly, as in this substitution for The Omen: "All references to prophecy and the Antichrist aside, Shepard Smith Reporting achieves its horrors the old-fashioned way. #PraiseFOX"

Jon Stewart added a brilliant new word to the vocabulary of media criticism yesterday: firstiness. Looking over the ludicrous flub in which first CNN and then Fox mistakenly reported that the Supreme Court had struck down the essence of the Obama health care plan – instead of, whoops, the opposite – Stewart mocked the crazed rush to be the first network to arrive with news that everyone knew was coming and all the reporters got at the same time. Asking, “Who would emerge from today’s chaos as the world’s grand champion of firstiness?” Stewart almost buried a word that is the perfect companion to Stephen Colbert’s classic, “truthiness.” Both allude to the slippery relationship between words and facts.
