CNN Chief Hall Monitor Brian Stelter saw something today that was just beyond parody, you guys.
See, while the confirmation hearing for Merrick Garland, Joe Biden’s pick for U.S. Attorney General, was airing on serious news networks like CNN and MSNBC, Fox News’ coverage was focused elsewhere:
Sometimes these contrasts sound like parodies. But this one is real. CNN and MSNBC right now: Live coverage of senators scrutinizing Biden's pick for attorney general. Fox: "CANCEL CULTURE COMES FOR 'THE MUPPET SHOW."

No kidding. Unlike Fox News, CNN is all about professionalism:

Real News, Mr. President!
Has CNN, the network that employs John Kasich, interviewed John Kasich about the serial sexual harasser who was his chief strategist from 2015-'19, or would that be silly too https://t.co/SvCZnq5TD2

Sorry, Brian’s too busy watching Fox News.
Somebody should watch Fox News all day and find things to complain about. https://t.co/GS1JWzj4Gl

There are few tweet genres with less purpose than "these channels are broadcasting something I think is important and that other channel isn't." https://t.co/dbkQMQkHIb

Anyway, for what it’s worth:
The greatest issue of our time is speech and thought control, enforced in part by cancel culture. Fox is covering the bigger story. https://t.co/qTq6hvmWbn
