Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly did not take too kindly to the light jabbing by “The Simpsons” on corporate sibling Fox. As we wrote yesterday, Sunday’s episode featured two jokes about the top-rated news channel, as well as some jokes about NBC and its outgoing CEO Jeff Zucker.
“Continuing to bite the hand that feeds it, part of it, Fox broadcasting once again allows its cartoon characters to run wild.”
Of course, “The Simpsons” has made Fox billions of dollars over the last two decades, and was already a hit show when Fox News Channel founder Roger Ailes was still at CNBC. If any program earned the right to bite the hand that feeds it, it would be this one.
