FOX News Salutes Joseph Goebbels
New York, New York - In a large rally at Madison Square Garden, News Corporation (NWS) hosted what it called A Salute to Joseph Goebbels in order to to celebrate and acknowledge the contributions that Goebbels made to the science of propaganda, contributions which have been faithfully followed by FOX News and its on-air personalities who are referred to internally at the network as Ministers of Propaganda.
Speaking to the assembled crowd, News Corp. Chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch said, "You know, over the years Joseph Goebbels has gotten a bad rap, but we shouldn't let that take away from his many achievements in creating popular opinion and controlling the population of a large industrial nation. He had it down to a science and that is why we at News Corp and FOX News are proud to call ourselves disciples of Goebbels, for he has shown us the way forward, a way which we have fervently followed, a way that has led to enormous wealth and boundless political power, and for that, Joseph Goebbels, we salute you."
At the end of the ceremony, Ministers of Propaganda Bill O'Reilly, Brit Hume and Sean Hannity were each awarded the newly reissued Iron Cross for their achievements in promoting endless war, torture and the redistribution of wealth from the poor and middle class to the richest one-percent of the population.
