Satirical Newscast from 2007 Accurately Reflects Today’s Media

A few years ago Fox News tried to introduce a little levity into their line of broadcasting with a satirical news show that they called “Half-Hour, News Hour” which took a humorous look at the news from a conservative perspective. The show lasted less than a year, but one skit in particular is making a comeback on the Internet because it seems to suggest that the writers could see the future.

In the episode from mid-July 2007, the show ran a skit about a recent terrorist attack where the anchors did their very best to avoid adding Islam to the equation. It’s very funny, and yet at the same time, very sad.
