To be fair, that's actually a common way to get ahead in news. Eating a dick.

There are some things we can all agree on. The weather has been odd recently, the Homeland finale happened, last Friday was real bad, and some of the news coverage was almost as disgusting. For the most part they got away with it because the networks are all horrible, so no amount of channel changing would help — unless you changed to one of the hundreds of channels still carrying soothing, information-free sitcoms, of course. Fortunately, Art! got the chance to actually tell someone in the media how we all felt. Seriously. Screw those guys.
