Fox News “Borrows” A Page From Bioshock: Infinite Logo For Immigration Panel

Ah,  Fox News. Love them or hate them, they’re good for a laugh. Case-in-point: last Thursday. During a panel on immigration entitled “Defending the Homeland”, the graphics department fired up their irony cannons and got to work creating an backdrop that would make any Columbian proud. Specifically, giant, flying jingoistic Columbia. Oh, you thought I meant DC? Nope. Not this time. I fear the irony was lost on the intrepid hosts of said discussion, but I do love it when life futilely attempts to mimic art by proposing an impenetrable border fence. Please. Clearly the solution is a flying city with Founding Father bots and dirigible technology.

The sheer amount of enjoyment most of us could get from jingoistic caricatures talking about immigration policy in front of a logo for a story about jingoistic caricatures is really a gift that keeps on giving. I hope the guy in the graphics department that whipped that puppy up gets the Medal of Freedom and lunch with the president. They earned it. As for Papa Levine, he had this to say on the matter, “It’s not the irony of that Fox news thing that bothers me so much. It’s the typesetting.” Next up on Fox News: a panel discussion on Scientology with a backdrop depicting the Unitologist debacle on Titan station from Dead Space. That’s an analogy I could actually get behind though. Get on it, edgy Fox News graphics department!
