Fox News to Celebrate 10th Anniversary in CNN’s Front Yard

This one is too funny, folks, and requires all drinking vessels to be placed at a safe distance from computers, keyboards, and monitors. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Wednesday (hat tip to TVNewser) that Fox News's tenth anniversary celebration will include live broadcasts in full view of CNN’s headquarter facility:

Fox, which actually turns 10 next week, plans to broadcast three shows Thursday at the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce building on the edge of Centennial Olympic Park. The public can watch Fox stars Shepard Smith and Greta Van Susteren broadcast live at 3 p.m., 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. EDT as part of Fox's 10-city "Thank You America" tour.

Presumably, so can the folks working just across the park in the CNN Center on Marietta Street.

"We'll have this lovely view of the CNN building, and I'm sure they'll have a lovely view of us," said Thom Bird, Fox's executive producer of news specials.

The article comically continued:

Bird chose the park location, he said, because it afforded great views of Atlanta's "beautiful cityscape."

But being so close to the powerhouse rival that Ted Turner built is clearly the icing on Fox's birthday cake.

"I'm sure we'll be waving at them and they'll be waving at us and watching to see how news is done," Bird said.

How delicious.
