PEAK FOX

I love everything about this image: burying the Mass Shooting #10174 story, the giant ad targeted at Fox News' primary demographic, the "Is this the Onion?" sub-headline. This will hang in a museum someday so future generations can try to understand the early 21st century and the collapse of the American empire.

  • Love the subtext, too. "White supremacists orchestrated a mass shooting, but can you blame them? Look at these illegal brown people coming across the border!"

  • The commercials on Fox are always hilarious, and aimed squarely at their core audience of 70+ year olds – medigap policies, adult diapers, reverse mortgages, mail-order catheters, mobility scooters. Everything is about decline and impending death. The commercials are more horrifying than the news coverage, incredibly enough.

  • That ad is not of the Google Ads variety. I'm 35, it's not quite Dick Pill time yet, I promise.

    All of my targeted ads based on search history are for Priceline, camping equipment, and cars.

    I recall one time I managed to get my computer hacked with a persistant ad bringing up touts for hair loss remedies, chronic tiredness uppers, and Viagra.

    Damn if I know how they managed to get so much detailed information on me, but it was scary…

    Peak?

    No, I don't think we'll see peak FOX and Reich-Wing lunacy for another 2+ years, during the 2016 Presidential Election.

    They're still warming-up.

  • Ah GNIDA, one of those ad hijacking persistent ads that downloaded a package to slow down your computer and offer ads to help speed up your computer. I got to reverse hack that one. Wound up getting a picture of the author's kitties!

    Remember kids, flash is born of the security hole.
