* OddCouple: Fox News Channel's political leanings are often at a complete disjoint to its sister entertainment network. For example, an episode of ''Series/{{House}}'' in 2010 [[{{Anvilicious}} heavily criticizes the health insurance industry]] that Fox News is advocating to leave alone. Said fact was a [[BitingTheHandHumor point of cynical observation]] in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', which suggests that [[MoodWhiplash the disjoint is deliberate]].
** The ''Simpsons'' example was so acrimonious that Fox nearly ''[[LogicBomb sued itself]]'' over it.

Host Megyn Kelly was quick to point out that the shark ''won''.


* BlondeRepublicanSexKitten / MsFanservice: It's a bit telling that a Google image search for "Fox News" will try to auto-complete it with the following: "anchors", "hotties", "logo", "women", "women legs", "girls", "anchorwoman". The perky blonde anchorwomen on Fox are legendary.

* PatrioticFervor: Have shows with names like "America's Newsroom", and for a long time, a "LIVE" bug featuring a furled American flag in the background. Bill O'Reilly was originally the poster child, and now that he is moderate in comparison, hosts Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity are known for this.
