Video: 'The Simpsons' Team Blasts Fox News in Congratulatory Message to FOX
In a title card to wish the network a happy 25th anniversary, the crew behind the animated show writes, 'We still love you,' but not the news channel.


"The Simpsons" team does not put aside their hatred towards Fox News even a bit on FOX's 25th anniversary. The show's creators take a jab at the news channel, which shares a corporate parent with the animated series, in a title card following a re-broadcast of "The Simpsons" first episode, "Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire".

"Congratulations FOX on 25 years... We still love you*," so read the congratulatory message attached to the title credits of the encore episode. Adding explanation to the asterisk symbol, it's written below the anniversary greeting, "*This doesn't include Fox News."

"The Simpsons" has expressed its dislike towards Fox News by featuring a series of Fox News helicopter gags in their opening credits last season, and fictional slogans like "Fox News: Not Racist, But #1 With Racists" and "Fox News: Unsuitable For Viewers Under 75". Hitting back at the animated series, host Bill O'Reilly claimed his cable news employers as "the hand that feeds them."
