'The Simpsons' knock Fox News during network anniversary -- PHOTO

The Simpsons took a little shot at Fox News during Fox’s anniversary celebrations Sunday night. Fox re-aired the original holiday special/pilot of its long-running animated hit as part of the network’s 25th anniversary specials. In the credits for the pilot, the card below appeared. Though Fox broadcast network and cable channel Fox News are both owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation and tend to get lumped together in the minds of some casual viewers, the networks are under separate day-to-day management and tend to have rather different personalities. And of course, this isn’t the first time The Simpsons have taken aim at the news network. Click below for the pic.
