New York City, NY—
Fox News CEO Emin Akbari today announced that, because Fox News has bet its reputation on the Russiagate controversy currently engulfing the Trump Administration, if Russiagate turns out to be a real scandal with real crimes he would shut down Fox News entirely.
“Look, I’m a man of honor,” Akbari said. “If we’re wrong about this, I don’t know why anybody would ever trust us ever again. If this scandal turns out to be real, then the credibility of this entire brand will have been compromised, and I can think of no reason why Fox News should be able to continue to exist as a news organization. It this scandal is fake, I’m sure to millions and millions of Americans that Fox News will look like a straight up fascist-loving totalitarian teacher’s pet of a news company. Uggh. That would seem so Third Reich-ish. Gross. So if we’re wrong about this, that’s it: it’s the end of Fox News as our purposefully biased conservative news network seems to have probably spoiled itself. As for me, maybe I’ll go into a different business. I hear mercenary/military contracting business is going good now. With Trump being in office there are sone beautiful bloated government contracts that can be gobbled up. And Trump won’t care if I do a shit job and pocket all the tax money. Yeah. No more Fox, but hellooooo government teat!”
