South Park Mocks Fox News, Coverage Of Britney Spears

Last night's "South Park" mocked Fox News Channel and the media's fascination with Britney Spears. The clip, seen below, starts with a debate between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama that is quickly interrupted by an emergency news bulletin called "BRITNEY WATCH."


Fox News' own Shep Smith mocked his network on-air for their sensationalist tone last year, and the Associated Press has recently come under fire for a staff memo declaring, "virtually everything involving Britney is a big deal."
