Instead of wasting its time with the epic scandal consuming Britain's journalistic establishment, Fox News investigates whether NPR is an agent of jihadist inquisition. (4:14)

DO WE OWN PARLIAMENT YET?

(LAUGHTER)

ALL IN ALL, IT'S A STORY TAILOR

MADE FOR THE 24 HOUR NEWS

CULTURE.

BIG PERSONALITY, SCANDAL,

BRIBERY, HACKING, CELEBRITY,

DEATH.

BUT ONE NETWORK HAS BEEN

RETICENT TO DUMPSTER DIVE INTO

ANY ASPECT OF THE STORY OTHER

THAN THEIR HERE IS

DISAPPOINTMENT AT SOME OF THEIR

COMPETITOR'S BEHAVIOR.

>> WE HAVE SERIOUS PROBLEMS IN

THIS COUNTRY RIGHT NOW.

WE ARE TEETERING ON DEFAULT AND

WHAT DO THEY DO?

THEY TALK ABOUT THIS.

>> VIRTUALLY EVERY TABLOID IS

GUILTY OF SOME KIND OF OFFENSE.

>> WHY ARE SO MANY PEOPLE PILING

ON?

WE KNOW IT'S A HACKING SCANDAL.

SHOULDN'T WE GET BEYOND IT?

>> THE LEFT HAS BEEN OUT TO GET

NEWSCORP, ESPECIALLY FOX NEWS

CHANNEL AND THE MURDOCH FAMILY

FOR YEARS.

>> MURDOCH, WHO OWNS IT, HAS

APOLOGIZED BUT FOR SOME REASON

THE PUBLIC, THE MEDIA, KEEPS

GOING OVER THIS AGAIN AND AND

AGAIN.

>> THE PILING ON.

S.

>> THIS IS THE BIGGEST CASE OF

PILING ON SINCE THE LAST RUGBY

GAME I SAW.

(AUDIENCE REACTS).

>> Jon: RUGBY, BY THE WAY, IF

YOU'RE GOING TO KISS RUPERT

MURDOCH'S ASS WITH A REFERENCE,

AT LEAST CALL IT AUSSIE RULES

FOOTBALL.

(LAUGHTER)

ANYWAY, I THOUGHT YOU WERE GOING

TO SAY THE BIGGEST CASE OF

PILING ON SINCE COMMON READ A

POEM AT THE WHITE HOUSE.

BUT...

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

MAYBE YOUR COMPETITORS ARE

TAKING AN UNSEEMLY AMOUNT OF

PLEASURE.

BUT PERHAPS THEY DON'T HAVE

FOX'S FINELY TUNED SENSE OF PRO

PROPORTIONALITY.

THEY DON'T HAVE THE ABILITY TO

SPOT STORIES OF REAL CRIMINALITY

AND IMPORT, LIKE THE CRIMES OF,

LET'S SAY, NPR.

>> THE NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO

EXECUTIVE CAUGHT ON TAPE IN A

BIGOTED HATE-FILLED RANT.

>> JUAN WILLIAMS FIRED BY NPR

FOR SAYING HE GETS NERVOUS WHEN

FLYING WITH MUSLIMS.

>> THE UPHEAVAL AT NPR REACHED

ITS ZENITH TODAY.

>> PRESIDENT OBAMA STILL

SUPPORTS GIVING NPR YOUR TAX

DOLLAR MONEY.

>> ON THE NPR SCANDAL, IS THE

LEFT WING MEDIA PLAYING THAT

DOWN?

>> LIBERALS ARE INTOLERANT.

>> WE'VE LINKED NPR TO SOROS, WE

KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING OVER

THERE.

>> THE CORRUPTION IS SO

WIDESPREAD IT'S SUCCEEDED IN

PERMEATING EVERY AREA OF THE

MAINSTREAM MEDIA.

>> THESE CRACKPOTS AT NPR.

>> THE TOTALITARIAN TACTICS OF

THE LEFT.

>> IS NPR AN AGENT SOMEHOW OF A

JIHADIST INQUISITION.

(LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE)

>> Jon: IS NPR AN AGENT

SOMEHOW OF A JIHADIST

INQUISITION?

I'M GOING SAY YES BECAUSE WHY

ELSE WOULD YOU BRING IT UP?

(LAUGHTER)

SEE, THAT IS A REASONABLY

PROPORTIONED RESPONSE.

THIS IS OVERREACTION TO THE

MURDOCH CASE WHICH WHAT IS AT

MOST AN EPIC BRIBERY AND

INFLUENCE PEDDLING SCANDAL

CONSUMING BRITAIN'S POLITICAL

LAW ENFORCEMENT AND JOURNALISTIC

ESTABLISHMENT IS REALLY A WASTE

OF EVERYONE'S TIME.

(LAUGHTER)

YOU KNOW, I KNOW WHAT THE

PROBLEM, IS YOU'RE JEALOUS.

AS A NEWSCORP PROPERTY, YOU'RE

NOT UPSET THAT YOUR STANDARDS

HAVE BEEN CORRUPTED BY YOUR

SCANDAL BONER ETHIC.

YOU'RE UPSET THEY GET TO HAVE

THE FUN WHILE YOU GET TO SIT ON

YOUR HANDS.

THIS SCANDAL WAS MADE FOR YOU

GUYS!

FOR GOD'S SAKE, LOOK AT THESE,

D.S.K., MADE MEN, THAT'S A GREAT

ONE.

OBAMA BEATS WEINER.

OSAMA BIN LADEN BIN WEST

BANKING.

THESE ARE PRICELESS PUNS.

IMAGINE THE FRUSTRATION THAT THE

PUN MASTERS OVER THERE MUST BE

FEELING.

THEY'RE MISSING OUT ON THE

CHANCE TO SHAME A HIGH PROFILE

MEDIA MOGUL, MAKE THAT NASTY

INSINUATIONS ABOUT HIS SECOND IN

COMMAND.

INDULGE IN PUNS ABOUT HER

PERSONAL APPEARANCE.

AND THE DEATH OF A

WHISTLE-BLOWER?

RIGHT!

I MEAN, IT'S EASY.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

IT'S SO EASY!

POOR BASTARDS!

NOW, I'M NOT SUGGESTING YOU

DON'T HAVE THE BALLS TO CONFRONT

MURDOCH ON THIS, I'VE SEEN YOU

DO IT.

WHEN THIS SCANDAL BROKE IN 2009,

FOX'S STEVE BARNEY YANKED

MURDOCH'S ASS OUT OF SUN VALLEY

AND LAID THE SMACK DOWN.

>> THE STORY THAT IS REALLY

BUZZING ALL AROUND THE COUNTRY

AND CERTAINLY HERE IN NEW YORK

IS THAT THE "NEWS OF THE WORLD,"

A NEWS CORPORATION NEWSPAPER IN

BRITAIN...

>> I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT THAT

ISSUE AT ALL TODAY.

SORRY.

>> I CAN, NO WORRIES MR.

CHAIRMAN, THAT'S FINE WITH ME.
