A Fox & Friends "interview" that quickly turned into a reverse-engineered mutation of Between Two Ferns has highlighted a notable, if obvious, shortcoming with the Fox News network: it isn't big on what elitist intellectuals from the Northeast would call "research," but what the producers at Fox call "uggggggghhhhh." » 9/17/12 9:15pm 9/17/12 9:15pm

Fox's Gretchen Carlson Walks Off Set as Brodude Coworkers Crack…
