The parody included a political debate hosted by Fox News, described by the moderator as "your voice for evil." Fox News's main beef was with the mock "news crawl" featured at the bottom of the screen during the debate, which Fox argued might confuse viewers. The crawl featured the following headlines:
"Do Democrats cause cancer? Find out at Foxnews.com. ... Rupert Murdoch: Terrific Dancer. ... Dow down 5000 points. ... Study: 92 percent of Democrats are gay. ... JFK posthumously joins Republican Party. ... Oil slicks found to keep seals young, supple. ... Dan Quayle: Awesome."
