We all know that Fox News opinions on things are, shall we say, without much substance. Remember them ripping Kendrick Lamar's "Alright"? It was so ludicrous that the rapper took the piss out of it on the intro of his masterful album Damn.
Anyway, we could do without Fox News viewpoint, but they have the unfortunate habit of giving it whether we like it or not.
Hosts of the Greg Gutfeld Show (a kind of irrelevant conservative late night talk show), recently reviewed the artists nominated for the 2018 edition of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. They questioned the nomination of such stars as Nina Simone and LL Cool J, wondered aloud about the importance of rock'n'roll and had a go at Radiohead.
Anchor Katherine Timpf explained that their being on the list was due to their fame and not to their talent:
“I don’t even like them, but 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.
You know what, if that’s not fame and power that will get me to do that for someone else, then I don’t know what is.”
Fox News, you might be rich and famous, but you do have to learn when to shut up, you know.
