Fox News Promises Not to Screw Viewers

After their recent ratings-grabbing series of “production errors,” Fox News management is promising to really get serious about firing the interns this time if it ever happens again:

That means we will start by going to air with only the most essential, basic, and manageable elements. To share a key quote from today’s meeting: “It is more important to get it right, than it is to get it on.”

If the WiFi at our Remote Office was working right now, we’d hunt down a ferociously clever graphic illustrating Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck “getting it on.” As it stands, we’re limited by what we can squeeze through our iPhone. Consider yourself blessed by our technical difficulties.

“It is more important to get it right, than it is to get it on.”

this is FOX we are talking about right?

@Capt Howdy:

Exactly – getting it “right” includes putting (D) next to Repub’s names as they confess to the affair with the goats. This policy only covers “errors”, not “shit we plan on making up outright”.

Clearly this memo is inspired by the “Going Rouge” book image fuckup, where they managed to snafu something they actually *wanted* to get right.

Noj, I don’t see this as their promise not to screw the viewers. Rather, I think they’re pledging to take their time, be gentle, and make sure the viewers have an orgasm as they make sweet, sweet love.

@Capt Howdy:
They’ve been re-reading transcripts from O’Reilly’s Loofa Sexual Harassment Lawsuit.

Anyone else got “Let’s Get It On” stuck in their head now?

@ManchuCandidate: *ahem*:

“Well, you’re dirty and sweet
Clad in black, don’t look back, and I love you
You’re dirty and sweet, oh yeah”


Get it on, bang a gong, get it on
Get it on, bang a gong, get it on

TJ, although you could read sexytime into this, too: The GOP considers a purity resolution, for which you will lose funding if you don’t agree to 8/10 of the items listed therein. I’m warming up the popcorn.

@rptrcub: So much for Reagan’s 11th Commandment.

@rptrcub: I’m surprised the abortion reference is only in regards to its potential funding in health care reform. I would think that’s not Jeebusy enough for the wingers.

@Jamie Sommers: Well, they have to keep the loopholes in there for when the Republican daughters [cough] Jenna [cough] need the services of a private OB/GYN who can ensure “menstrual regularity”
