At Emmys, Conan Slams FNC as 'Fake News'
Introducing Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert at tonight's Emmy's, Conan O'Brien joked that "these two presenters have done for fake news what the FOX News channel has done for fake news."

I usually wouldn't make a big deal out of something like this, but today's just the wrong day for the gratuitous slam of FOX News as "fake news." You know, because two of it's journalists were just freed from the very real experience of being kidnapped while on the job and then held hostage for 13 days.
UPDATE 0:43. Ian at Hot Air notes that the intro of tonight's Emmys was, in part, a plane-crash parody of ABC's Lost. Again, considering that a plane crashed in Kentucky today, the producers/whoever probably should have reconsidered keeping that part of the pre-taped skit in the show.Suffice it to say, I think Ed Driscoll nails it: "NBC has definitely hit an iceberg's worth of bad PR tonight."
