Dumb Like a Fox

No matter how cynical you are, it's never enough.--Comedienne Lily Tomlin

Australian media mogul Rupert Murdoch's FOX TV announced last weekend (January 20) it is developing a new game show. The proposed show's name?

"Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?" (or here; I am not making this up.)

Viewers (and contestants) demonstrating sufficient intellectual prowess to answer "yes" will be impressed they only channel surf through without watching programing fare Murdoch presents on his FOX News Network, the cable station with "fair and balanced" spin coverage of--and talking-head "critical" commentary on--their top manufactured non-stories.

What's next, Rupert? How about a reality show in which FOX-only viewers compete for college tuition funds for their children or themselves?

Now there's a TV project to fold promptly for lack of interested contestants.
