I really couldn't care les about what FOX news says. They're a news channel in a country on the other side of the world that, based on the evidence I've been shown here on the Escapist, treat news as if it open to artistic license to make it more entertaining. They're basically the Onion, except at least the Onion doesn't try to hide the fact that its news is all satire. Why are you even giving them this kind of attention?

The only thing that justifies the existence of this comic is Podi. In... well, in a tie.

...OK, fine, the comic can stay. Just make jokes about things that matter in future, please?

Also, more Podi.

The only way America will break out of the chains the media has placed on them is with awareness. We can't let them say these sort of things and get away with it.

Maybe so. Now how are we going to make sure the general populace of America reads this comic?

Hint: Large quantities of oversized Podi plush toys with interchangeable ties will feature prominently in the solution.

I don't think this was funny, but it did make me smile.

So I conclude that it's a great comic.

I really hope Ambrozy reads this and at least feels a little vindicated seeing the little smirk that was drawn on his face in the second-to-last frame.

It's almost like Asbury wasn't even talking about the same subject.

Well Fox is pure evil, everyone knows that.
And the comic made me smile/laugh, which is good!

Liked the strip :D

Also watched the debate, and honestly the "nerd" came out better in my mind when it came to discussing the topic.

Though the man that had no good reason to take part in the debate, was discussing something completely different than what the topic really was imo. He was discussion if the fund itself is valid, and he seemed to want to cut grants to all the art forms...

The people that was at fault here was the idiots at Fox News for trying to make sensationalism out of the fact that some video game developers MIGHT get grants to make games.

CosmicCommander:
I'd give you that their argument was absolutely shite, yes. And that they were biased, filled with patchy rhetoric, and blind idiocy.

But I would have to agree with the core matter. Games should not get taxpayers money; neither should any other art form.

To be fair the annoucer himself said the laughable words "Tens of thousends of federal dollars" When infact something in the tens of thousands is minute compatred to the ammount the US gov wastes on new types of bombs that turn people gay (look it up) and so forth.

We are talking about tiny ammounts of money here, ammounts that are dwarfed both by the gargantian overall budget and the baffling ammounts simply wasted eslewhere.

Man the strip this week looks eeirly like ctrl alt del: http://www.cad-comic.com/cad/20110523

Podi Puss just kicked that bald asshole's ass!

Never trust Fox News. Always trust Podi.

Podi Puss in 2012!

They should just shut down Fox News altogether.

you see, political commentators believe they are witty when they make up words that sound like other ones.

Holocost for one, is a play on Holocaust, which was the systematic extermination of many undesirables under Nazi Germany's guidelines, what I believe he was trying to do was show a correlation between the murders of 6+ million people to spending taxes on art.

Of course, this is just a guess, because if he actually DID try that, it would of came off as being insensitive and down-right embarrassing for even FOX news, since it is in bad taste to use something that had hurt an entire generation, and generations to come, not to mention entire populaces of countries as casually as he did. I mean, that would be like saying 9/11 would be a direct description of how I felt when I finished my bowl of cereal just now.

in bad taste.

seriously, why did I even buy Apple Jacks? I hate Apple Jacks!

Glenn Beck made Holocaust comparisons all the time on his Fox show. He once said, "This is exactly the kind of talk that led to the death camps in Germany . . . ." The Third Reich is frequently raised by Beck. The Washington Post's Dana Milbank recently added up the post-Obama inauguration references on Beck's show to Nazis or Nazism (202), Adolf Hitler (147), fascism (193), and Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels (24).

but you see, Glenn Beck, who raped and killed a young girl in the 1990's, is an idiot, which is a bit scary, I mean...

If Fox News gives someone like Glenn Beck, who raped and killed a young girl in the 1990's, a talk show, who else would they give a show to?

Fred Phelps and Harold Ray Redfeairn [as far as I could research, the current leader of the Aryan Nations] in the Morning, only on Fox News!

But the thing is you're ragging on Glenn Beck, who raped and killed a young girl in the 1990's, because of his past...where he raped and killed a young girl in the 1990's. Fox News is on their ball by giving Glen Beck, who sodomized a young kitten with a tire iron in the 1980's, his own show, since it's clear they're hoping to be the first ones to report on Glenn Beck, who brutally sexually assaulted a bottle of beer and cracked it open on his own wangus to threaten a starving 3rd world child into giving him their candy, when he decides to make a repeat offense...OF RAPING AND KILLING A YOUNG GIRL (which, unlike the kitten and small child, he actually did in the 1990's).

OT: This comic is great. I'm falling in love with the artist (not really but she is truly admirable). I wants a Podi Puss of my own. :,(
Podi Puss gave them what for! No other journalist would go on such a rampage on national television like Podi!

WE BELIEVE...IN PODI

Glad I live in Canada where our 2 big news agencies have intelligence. And the people are tolerant.

Nice strawman of a comic. Cause you know Fox is the only news station that hates video games. Remember all those pro-video game stories CNN and MSNBC run? Oh yeah, those are also negative.

I'm not saying Fox doesn't pull this crap, but they are the only one that ever seem to get called out on it because they are republican. It just gets so tiring, you know. Pick on CNN for being equally crap.

EternalFacepalm:
I laughed. Hard. Both because of this comic, and Fox's idiocy. But ping-pong... IS ART!
Also, I could never win a debate against Podi.

I don't think even Yahtzee could beat Podi. His word is LAW!!!

Secondly as funny as I found this comic, it also made me sad at how true this was. I swear FOX just keeps on leading the stupidity parade every year.

let us do some math bullshit together(god believers use it to "prove" stuff and so can i!)

let us take the word "fox"
f=6 o=15 x=24 => fox=45
we have all seen the movie with jim carry about the number 23, turn it around its 32.
you add the two numbers and you get 45+32=77.
77 is also troll! t=20 r=18 o=15 l=12 l=12.

there for fox news are trolling us. this is fact!
i know it is because i messed around with numbers until i was able to connect the two words for no real reason and with no real logic.

Point well made. If anything I don't know any news station I currently watch that is PRO-VIDEO GAME.

I think we just poke fun at FOX is because it's so easy at times. Either way we really should cover other news broadcasters as well.

Because when we insult, it should be non-discriminatory. Remember! Always judge by the level of stupidity, not political affiliation.

THE MORE YOU KNOOOOOW *Stars shoot over my head*

Not a strawman when this is emulating something that just recently happened on Fox News >_> Did you see the clip of the actual "discussion" about NEA funding of video games?

Also, it's just generally funnier to rag on Fox News because they're typically so far to the right that 30% of what they say can be construed as bigoted to some extent. They strive to be the wrongest news :3 (and they got the courts to legalize blatantly lying on the news)

Not saying the other news stations are heroically portraying games as good; just that Fox is hilariously going overboard every time that they mention games.

Did you see the debate (and I use the term loosely) being represented here? I've seen some bad things on FOX News, but this, this was something else.

....Ouch dude. I believe in God but I don't use Bullshit numbers. If anything I'm one of the more tolerant quiet kind that facepalms everytime an idiotic representative of the church claims to have answers he made up.

Secondly concerning your math skills. All I have to say HOLY JESUS MOTHER OF GOD!! It's true!!!

I didn't see the story this comic was based, so I guess that makes sense. I a still annoyed by how much crap Fox gets while the other stations walk off scott free. Especially you know how MSNBC is related to Miscosoft, who makes video games.

i didnt say all of you do it, i was just making fun of the ones that do.
i respect your right to believe what ever it is you wish to believe in.

Fox News hates the government. (Now that it isn't run by Republicans.)
Fox News hates video games.

So for there to be a small chance for them to attack a government agency for giving money to something involving video games?

I swear, when I first heard of the NEA declaring video games art, I could imagine Fox News workers jizzing themselves...

The somewhat ironic thing is, you'd think Fox News pundits would like games like CoD, since they sort of glorify the xenophobic militaristic fear-mongering attitude that Fox is all about.

Huh, Podi makes some strong arguements for state funding of video games there, I really wish Fox had him on to defend gaming. I face palmed, Picard style, when watching this, not because the arguement against Federal funding of gaming, but because people will watch and believe this drivil. Things like this make me glad I live in the Uk and not the USA, I'm sad to say.

Oh and good strip this week :D

ok, seriously? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! 'literally' lol. nice job.

Wonderful comic! Brought the point home. :D

However, the debate really makes me feel ashamed to be American. These are the morons in our 'news.' Any country up for some immigrants? Plz?

Jungy 365:
For God's sake, why does Fox keep coming back to games? Do they all honestly think that games are the most evil things in the world that require constant vigillance? Okay, I've vented.
Seriously, someone just give Fox a rubber ball to play with.

Fox, and frankly most of the Republican party, is based entirely on fear. It's hard to make people afraid of things they know about so you have to drum on things they're ignorant of. And since the majority of their viewers are old and technophobic, video games are a VERY easy target.

The entire point of Fox is summed up as this "The world is big and scary! Because we say so. Be afraid! Be very afraid! All these new things are here to destroy everything you hold dear and rip away your money and rights! Are you scared shitless and pissed off now? Good! Worry not true Americans. Trust everything we say without question and we'll protect you from the big scary world."

Ever seen Tangled? The girl is kept locked in her room. Her mother convinced her that if she ever ventured out into the world people would do horrible things to her. Even though she could have left at any time, she was kept captive by fear. She was completely reliant on her mother who made sure that reliance continued by keeping her afraid. This is how the Republican party operates.

That squirrrr is perfect.

Im English so help me out here, does Fox News have anything to do with Fox Kids because I loved Fox Kids when I was younger?

Anyone that can think, knows for a fact that fox news isn't news, its scares. It doesn't try to report straight news, it tells you to think certain things are bad or good, by presenting stupid or straight up made up evidence to make their side look better. Fox Scare, not news.

Hilarious.
