Fox News Explains How Futurama‘s Bender Won an Election to Head DC’s School Board

On Friday’s Fox & Friends, host Steve Doocy introduced a story about how Bender — a cartoon robot from Comedy Central’s Futurama — was voted in as the head of the Washington, D.C., School Board. The election, Doocy explained, wasn’t real — it was a trial run for electronic voting systems and how secure they are. A team from the University of Michigan hacked in and made Bender the winner.

“If you think electronic voting systems are secure,” Doocy explained, “try explaining how the guy you’re about to see won an election.” He then showed a clip of Bender’s arms falling off.

Muppets Director: “No, The Muppets Are Not Communist”

It’s a very strange turn of events to hear a question like that, cable news is 24 hours long so you have to fill it up with something. No, the Muppets are not communist. The character of Tex Richman is not an allegory for capitalism in any way. The character is called Tex Richman. It’s a joke. Clearly he is a classic, old school bad guy. He’s bad not because he works for an oil company but because he’s evil. No, it’s not a communist movie in any way. James Bobin, director of The Muppets.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Fox News (who else?) segment that Bobin is responding to, I’ve posted it below.

Fox News Offers Advice on Sexting, People Immediately Stop Sexting

Fox News has gotten hip to the cool jive and is offering tips on sexting (“strictly adults only”!) that is sure to make you think a few brain thoughts. Among them: Did my parents catch me sexting and report it to Fox News? Did Fox News only just find out about sexting? And does this mean sexting is officially not cool anymore? Not sure about answers to the first two questions, but the third might be a yes. And also, your parents are going to start sexting. Also: I am so sorry I made you think about that.
