THERE was no doubting who won April Fools Day 2019 after Fox News dumbfounded their audience by publishing only real news for the entire day.
The network’s loyal viewership who tuned in Monday morning were treated to a shocking and unfamiliar sight with factual news stories researched using real sources and presented with no political or financial bias.
The morning began with a prepared statement read by the hosts of Fox’s flagship program.
“Good morning and welcome to Fox and Friends, today’s top story…” began Ainsley Earhardt suggesting nothing unusual was afoot.
“The president is actually not very good at his job and is making millions of Americans poorer and more unsafe each and every day,” she read, before Brian Kilmeade added, “Yes. He truly is a bigot, a traitor, a sexual predator and an embarrassment to this country. He should be in jail for the rest of his life.”
Understandably Fox’s audience was horrified.
“What the hell is this? Where’s the update on the violent dirty migrant caravan?” tweeted one befuddled Fox News viewer. “What the hell is that crap about the President’s approval rating being shit and immigrants not being scum? What the hell is going on?”
Among the many “fake” news stories published by Fox News was a strong rebuke of Judge Jeanine Pirro’s recent comments, labelling the Fox news host “a blatant racist”. There was an also an op-ed warning Fox viewers to “never EVER trust Sean Hannity” adding that he was simply “an actor playing a character of a mentally unstable asshole”.
A disclaimer under these stories on foxnews.com reassured readers that they were in fact reading a factual news story for April Fools Day and that “normal service would be resumed tomorrow”.
