Well, you knew FOX News was going to bring the crazy as soon as you saw the news about “NASA’s” new paper on possible results of a planetary encounter with aliens (actually, it’s not from NASA.. though, many are inaccurately saying it is).
Of course, FOX reporters said it was a NASA study (again, it wasn’t). Furthermore, they totally framed the story in a way that made it sound crazy, rather than making it clear that it was a thought experiment analyzing “a broad range of contact scenarios in terms of whether contact with ETI would benefit or harm humanity.”
And, the worst bit, they create a ridiculous poll of false choices that put their anti-science-funding, anti-climate-change-realism agenda on a pedastool. Below are two videos and an image of their ridiculous, hilarious poll results:
I love the Gretchen Carlson’s comment on how confusing the paper was on Fox and Friends… said the same thing about SpongeBob SquarPants a couple weeks ago. Me thinks she finds a lot of things confusing…
