Fox News likes to claim it is cable’s most watched news network and data does bear that out, but there is no doubt that it is also a polarizing network. Many of its critics consider it, if not outright dishonest, at least very biased. Most of the time that doesn’t appear to bother Fox, but it can lead to amusing incidents such as one that occurred during a segment of Fox & Friends. While talking to people in a diner in Kentucky, a person in the background held up a sign that read “FOX LIES” while saying that Fox is fake news. This, amusingly, forced Fox to cut the segment.

The video was shared on Twiter by John Whitehouse of Media Matters where it earned a plethora of amusing responses.
Regardless of one’s feelings on Fox, it is always somewhat gratifying to see an average person take on a multi-million dollar media enterprise and win. Even if it is in a very small battle.
