This '80s-Style Pop Song Is Actually A Blistering Critique Of Fox News

The power of love? More like the power of hate.

Don’t expect this parody of a pop song to be featured on Fox News anytime soon.

The catchy ’80s-style track takes the widely watched conservative network’s prime time hosts to task with their own words for fearmongering, spreading disinformation and defense of President Donald Trump.

The power of love? It’s more like the power of hate.

Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham and Jeanine Pirro all are called out in musician Nick Lutsko’s spoof clip that comedy website CollegeHumor shared online this week.

“I just think it was a fun way to expose the hypocrisy of a network that spends all of their time defending a guy who shouts ‘fake news’ all day,” Lutsko, 28, from Chattanooga, Tennessee, told HuffPost on Thursday.

There is at least one Fox News voice of reason in the video, however, in host Shep Smith ― who pops up late in the video to debunk his colleagues’ mistruths.

Check out the parody track here:
