Fox News trolling us

Post  Pickslide Pony on Fri Jun 17, 2011 3:40 pm

This was on the same article this forum was on in Equestria Daily. Pretty much Fox News says we're a bunch of low life scum who likes a show intended for little girls, going on to say we have no life.

As much as this makes me rage inside, the best thing to do is to not let them know any reactions. Remember, they're trolls, and the worst thing you can do to a troll is reply to one.

So, guys, your thoughts on the matter?

P.S. here's the clip in case you ignored it

I saw that on ponychan. I wonder where they actually got the idea that people were actually quitting their jobs over a show? I guess local fox news channels stretch facts too.

Fox news always stretches the facts. or ignores them.
Everytime the guy with the beard talks its all about those social programs. Ugh. Like, he makes logical connections to how much the government is spending in EVERYTHING.

I just take the same tactic with Fox I take with any troll: Ignore. Poke fun occasionally, but that doesn't work when they're not right there, so just ignore.

Saw it on Ponychan, was annoyed, but realized that it was minor bad attention, so not too many people now compare us to manchildren like Fox did.

Most of these trolls seem come from sources which don't tend to be the serious type of media. It's probably only us who take these seriously. Could be that all of this media attention just arouses curiousness and there could even be abundance of people joining the herd...

But i agree: replying is not a good idea.

PS: if you don't follow the news too often, Fox did it again, although this one wasn't too hard on us.

Really I could care less about Fox News. They are a group that tries to pass off editorialism as news. Plus they've been assholes to other subcultures as well (Namely furries)
