Running out of ways to defend the President, FOX News’ Greg Gufteld Show has taken to discussing culture, or what FOX News believes to be the most talked about news in music—the 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees. It’s an honor that has made less and less sense every year, as clear Rock and Roll legends have yet to be included while rap groups like N.W.A. are inducted (love and respect for N.W.A., but they’re not rock and roll).
FOX News’ fervor doesn’t involve rap music this time around, however, as they turn their attention to the illustrious career of Radiohead. Correspondent Kat Timpf, who claimed that she predicted Radiohead’s inclusion because the Rock Hall is “about fame, and not talent,” kind of also self-roasted herself, as well as the entire Radiohead community.
Besides Timpf’s I don’t like them, so no one else should reasoning thus far, she adds the real kicker to the argument, attacking their fans based on personal grudges:
the kind of guys that I like have to be three things: strange, malnourished, and sad. Those guys always like Radiohead, so I’ve been having to pretend to like Radiohead for years to get these men, even though the music is just elaborate moaning and whining for ring tone sounds.
The host of the show, Greg Gutfeld, doubled down on Timpf’s statements, stating: “You know, Radiohead is a fine band but they stole everything from Coldplay… like Radiohead is the poor man’s Coldplay.” Coldplay formed one year after the release of Radiohead’s second album, which makes Radiohead stealing anything from Coldplay incredibly difficult, but we all know fact checking isn’t anything FOX News cares about.
Coldplay’s official Twitter page retweeted the statements, writing “finally someone has the balls to say it!! ,” and Radiohead’s Johnny Greenwood recently changed his Twitter bio to read: “strange, malnourished, and sad.”
Gutfield continued with the unwarranted Radiohead bashing just like an SNL skit the 8th time around, saying that if he were president, his first executive order would be to “bad Radiohead in public places.”
FOX News’ hatred of Radiohead and love of Coldplay is not surprising however, just like their hatred of rap music, but you have to admire their insatiable need to embody the white stereotype. The upcoming segment of listing which foods are too spicy for them seems imminent.
