In this video clip from The Simpsons, as Homer stares mesmerized at the set, Lisa asks the eternal question: "How can Fox News be so conservative when the Fox Network keeps airing raunchy shows? They don't fit together."

The explanation she gets from right-wing Springfield tv news personality Kent Brockman is, "Fox deliberately runs shows that will earn them huge fines they can then funnel through the FCC straight to the Republican Party. Everybody in the media knows it but no one has the guts to say it."
