“Is it political? Is it a PC thing?” Fox News’ Steve Doocy asked of a recent profile that sent Mario’s job as a plumber down the drain. The removal of his working class status, his grab bag of millionaire playboy hobbies, his elevation into the highest echelons of the Hollywood elite—how did we not see it sooner???
Everyone’s bummed out about The Division these days, from internet message boards to cable news channels.
Well, here's a bit of irony. Check out the logo used by Fox News during a recent interview with Texas Governer Rick Perry about immigration. It sure looks similar to the BioShock Infinite logo, right?
When Fox News' Shepard Smith started reporting on a giant-ass tablet, there really was no other way this was going to end — He was clearly gonna use that thing to play Candy Crush Saga.
Microsoft says the Xbox One won't need an always-online Internet connection. But if you want to play it, the thing might need to check in with the home office once a day. Playing used or borrowed games also sounds like a real bitch. Only one thing that can save gamers from this: our old enemy, Fox News.
This isn’t the first time Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro has name-checked video games in a rant meant to inflame people scared of any change to gun ownership rights. But this weekend, Pirro’s comments were made from the NRA’s bully pulpit.
Did you know that there's a video game where George Washington is evil? And that it's made by the French?
The drill is familiar: a lawmaker goes on a newsmaker show, puts on a Real Serious Face, is teed up some opportunity to tell everyone that scary scary video games bear some responsibility for America's love affair with gun massacres.
In the Fox News segment excerpted above, Judge Jeanine Pirro argues that banning guns won't stop crime. She should certainly feel free to argue that position. But when she invokes video games in a preposterous culture-war argument, it's hard to take any of her comments seriously. Here's a partial transcript of what…
Ready for an incredibly uncomfortable 3:39 of financial news? This schizophrenic clip from Fox Business starts off with a mention of Vice President Joe Biden's meeting with video game industry representatives today and, from there, seems like it's supposed to be a straightforward rundown of how sales trends are…
Bill O'Reilly has made a great living as Fox News Channel's national scold for the past 15 years, with video games among many targets in his campaign of cultural warfare. So at the beginning of this segment on his program last night, when he smugly diagnoses Adam Lanza, the Newtown, Conn. shooter, as a violent video…
We have yet to hear all the details on today's horrific shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, which claimed the lives of 27 people this morning. News is still trickling in as we learn about what happened, how it happened, and why it happened.
Never one to back away from humorously uninformed hogwash, Fox News has run a new article suggesting that young voters might skip the polls to spend time playing the newly released Xbox 360 game Halo 4.
It's been evident for a while now that the many in the mainstream (read: non-gaming) press maybe don't quite know how to cover video games. Evidence of this is in every well-meaning but ill-informed radio segment, every weird newspaper column, and especially in every terrible Fox News talking-heads segment. Gaming has…
Yesterday, several of my friends emailed me links to the video clip above, a "Fox and Friends" segment that aired a few days ago. In their accompanying emails, each person voiced similar sentiments of pissed-off frustration.
Here's a video that is uncomfortable to watch on two levels. The first is that I feel terrible for Brian Ambrozy, the editor-in-chief of Icrontic, who is appearing on Fox News to try to explain why and what kind of video games are now eligible for federal arts funding. The second is the nonstop assault Fox and its…
One of the two experts quoted in Fox News' notorious hit-piece on Bulletstorm has clarified his remarks, and while he stands by them, says their presentation lacks context - and that he enjoys playing Mature-rated shooters in his free time as well.
