Fox News Thinks Everyone in San Francisco Is Naked Right Now

Posted By on Tue, Nov 20, 2012 at 8:15 AM

Fox News is right-wing America's news source for the truly phobic, which is why we weren't surprised this morning to find news headlines declaring Illinois' War on Christmas and enlightening us that secession is a deep American principle.

Then you scroll to the "culture" section of the news site and there's this headline making a farcical claim about the City by the Bay:

Here's How Nudists Would Dress if They Did Wear Clothes

It's true there are a legion of proud nudists in San Francisco who seem to despise fabric, but the only thing that's really running wild out there is Republican paranoia. Needless to say, the Fox News headline just might give our cousins in Alabama (the ones we like) the wrong impression about us.

Of course, Fox's snippet on San Francisco's latest crop of out-of-control freaks has given its nudophobic readers another chance to preach intolerance, to put it nicely.

All will be resolved later today when San Francisco Board of Supervisors are expected to vote on whether to put an end to the days of running wild for local nudists.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
