There's a lot going on in the world. Perhaps most pertinently, the U.S. government is on the verge of shutting down despite all three branches being controlled by the Republican party. If a spending bill doesn't pass Congress by Friday night, all non-essential government operations will cease. One reporter on Twitter, however, noticed Fox News was far more interested in another topic:

Trump's clear preference for sycophantic media is reminiscent of another famous world leader...
No matter where you stand on the issue, you gotta give it up for this dynamite pun:
Twitter users had some strong feelings about Rupert Murdoch's empire.

Not the one who in 2017 had more blatantly false reports, that had to be fully retracted, than CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, NYT, WaPo, AP, COMBINED, I'm sure......— Putin America 1st (@FictionalFacts2) January 18, 2018
Though, Twitter joked, their humor was, at the end of the day, masking some very angry feelings. It seems some news networks are more accountable to the truth than others.
