SO THAT'S HOW THEY GET THOSE RATINGS.

Robert Greenwald's Brave New Films today issued the latest salvo in its long war against FOX. Called "FOX Attacks Decency... with Bill O'Reilly Leading the Way," the four-and-a-half minute clip argues that all FOX shows use gratuitous sexual images -- mainly women in bikinis, from the look of it, shaking their groove thangs -- and that cable customers should be able to buy packages of channels that don't contain such a pornified public affairs channel.

Right now, the channels are bundled and there's no way for families to screen out the smut on FOX or otherwise block the channel. Brave New Films wants to change that, and is hosting a petition asking the FCC to switch to a-la-carte cable pricing so that viewers who don't want FOX in their homes can opt out of receiving the channel.

I don't know if this is a real thing or a brilliant skewering of Fox's hypocrisy.

I think I'm going to go with "Both."
