I agree that they are a bit more careful on the clip Scott linked to
(Perverts Pull Out"), but further downstream if you follow it on
other Fox shows and on the internet it becomes confused, with people
saying the NEA is funding the making of porn with animals, etc.

Probably what it shows more than anything is that none of these
people (Fox et al) has a sense of humor, or if they do have it, they
don't let it get in the way of their propaganda work.
