Fox News Hates Star Wars

Why is this unsurprising?

  • Fox News, best known among the current generation for its relatable and unbiased opinions, apparently hates Star Wars.

    Okay, maybe the entire network doesn’t, but one Fox News “reporter,” Carly Shimkus, certainly can’t stand it and wants everyone to know. In this segment, she drones on about how overrated the films are, and how much our society is over saturated with things pertaining to them. And if the hoards of down votes on the video are any indication, nerd culture (aka a fairly high percentage of society at this point) isn’t too happy with Shimkus for relentlessly blasting one of the most popular franchises of all time on national television.

    At the end of the day, everyone is entitled to his or her opinion, but it’s always a little questionable when that opinion turns towards belittling people for having interests that are different from one’s own interests. And so, so out of character for Fox News and its affiliates.

    (Let’s be honest though, Fox News probably hates Star Wars because they thought the Empire should’ve come out on top.)
