    I can't believe people are comparing Rupert Murdoch to Satan.
    I mean he's evil, but he's not as bad as Rupert Murdoch.

      "An apology for the Devil – it must be remembered that we have only heard one side of the case. God has written all of the books."

      Wasn't Sir Veyor the sixth and least-known of the Marx brothers? If I recall correctly, his schtick was to blow a dog whistle wherever he went, and when the cops arrived to see who was causing the ruckus, he would point the finger at Chico.

    Not to mention that it's just poor grammar. It's not a matter of substituting a similar term loaded with innuendo and still getting the headline to make sense. I mean, who wants to read "Newt Gingrich Prematurely Ejaculates Presidential Race"? Or "Bristol Palin Pregnant with New TV Show?" Or "Rick Santorum Surging . ."

    . . . well, bless my ever-copyediting heart.

      Since there was a mosque inside the fucking WTC, you'd think that would not be a problem. For rational people.

    I see from that screengrab that there are 180 comments on that article. Want to play the Fox News comment drinking game? Shoot yourself every time you read a comment on Fox News.

    OOH! I have a headline for them! Let's see if you can spot where I play the "sly Fox":

    "MC Hammer Changes Channel from CNN to Take a Propa Ganda at Fox News."

    Can't touch that.

  5. ElPinche

    Here's my rebuttal headline:

    …because 500,000 wingnuts wacked off to the mosque exploding headline today.

    Jeebus W. Christ, I can't believe I actually went to Fox Nation, but the story was so short, I clicked on the first linkie I saw, read it, and realized I don't need to bother with The Onion any moar.

    Somebody tell the Teatards that the Mesquite barbecue chips they eat by the feedbag is both Messican (by origin) & Muslin (by name). Mezquita, in Spanish, means (of the) mosque.

  8. flamingpdog

    How can 74 percent growth be "an explosion" anyway? It's nowhere near 179 percent!

  9. Crank_Tango

    Tomorrow's Fox News Headline: Gay Black Muslim Liberals Want to Rape You and Take Your Money.

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      Rape and Robbery by Gay Black Muslim Liberals explodes 100%!!!!!!
      (Two incidents, vs. the one back in 1989.)

    the "trending button" for Fox Nation site is named "Fire It Up"

    oh boys, I guess Fox-tards are really pyromaniacs

  11. e_z

    I like that the reading folks at Fox nation have rated their story as "Scary" and they don't mean Count Floyd scary either.

  12. ttommyunger

    Mooslims, yeah. That's the ticket! Pay no attention to Rupert's smarmy kid stepping down in fear of further legal action, disregard the growing scandal swirling in the Fetid Fox Family Tree, nothing to see here but fear, fear, FEAR!

      1. Abernathy

        You can gave the falafel: Santorum's busy with the microphones and the law enforcement officials in Arizona are covering the undocumented members.

  13. JustPixelz

    Any time they can get "mosque" and "explode" in the same headline, Fox counts it as a win. Some of their other favorites include:

    "Gas Prices Skyrocket: Almost to Bush levels"
    "Illegal Immigrants too Busy Voting to Self-Deport"
    "Obama Apologizes to Al Queda" (this one is still in the bull pen)

  14. Wadisay

    At least they did not go on to say that Obama had failed to denounce this development. Part of their lurch to the center, I guess.

  15. mrpuma2u

    ECKSPLOSHUNS?!?!?!? I told ya them muslins weren't not up to no good, they's a buildin' BOMBZ to take our freedomz!!!!!!!

  16. Redhead

    I'm surprised they didn't change the number, either. Their interns don't seem to be very good at math.

  17. MinAgain

    Fox is blowing this all out of proportion. Which makes sense, considering how much Fox sucks on a day to day basis.

  18. MiniMencken

    Hmmm. The USA population increased by just a little less than 10% in the past decade. The number of active mosques increased by 74%. The correct Fox hed should have been: "Mosque Growth Outstrips US Population Growth By 740%!!!!!!" There, fixed.
