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!"

    Also, the giant Cialis ad. Says so much about their readership.

    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.

    I hate to break it to you Ed, but internet ads are usually based on your own viewing habits.

  5. Ed Says:

    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…

    Here, Ed, add this to your "death of the empire" file

    @Skipper: they look like the sort of folks who own more firearms than teeth.

    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.
