"Journalism" Smack Down

Dear Readers:

This will require all your critical powers. It will not be an easy task. It is time for you to decide who is the more legitimate "journalist": Huel Perkins of Fox News Detroit...Or Ron Burgundy? Mentally prepare yourself for an arduous task:

Special thanks to Jim Holbel for this gem.


  1. PLEASE, PLEASE tell me that the Fox clip was a YouTube prank???? There aren't really people out there being paid for that kind of journalism. Leave it to Fox. Ron Burgandy has my vote.

  2. using the word journalism in the same sentence with fox, should be a capital crime! it never ceases to amaze me how many people buy into the blatant bullshit that rupert and minions spew out labeled as news! George Seldes is doing mach rev's in His grave!

  3. Sadly, this is not a joke. Well, Ron Burgundy is a joke, although I think he wins this competition.

    My favorite is the conversion of LOL to a boisterous and leering "HA HA!"

  4. I'll never be able to read "LOL" the same way ever again...

  5. The best part is the 'Hell Yeah' Kwame/Flavor Flav impersonation. YEaaaaaah Boi!

  6. This was hilarious! He may as well be reading song lyrics. And with such Barry White enthusiasm too! :)

    Fox journalism is so in the gutter that it always seems to come off funny in a sardonic sort of way. If they weren't such a media power, I'd consider them rebellious, instead of what they truly are... which is very scary.


Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
