It’s pretty obvious that the Fox News anchor lineup is primarily dominated by grumpy middle-aged men and beautiful (mostly) blonde women. Singer Austin Cunningham has noticed, and wrote “The Girls Of Fox News,” a country tribute to the Fox bombshells that has gone viral on YouTube.
In the song, Cunningham admits that he “used to be a Democrat,” but changed his mind after watching too much Fox News.
“Well I used to be a Democrat, Liberal no doubt. I didn’t think Conservatives knew what life’s about. Then I started leaving the Fox News channel on. If that’s the face of the right, I’ll tell the left so long,” his tribute begins.
Though the song is sure to send a shiver down the spine of many a “Faux News” hater, the catchy-ness of the tune is pretty undeniable. Particularly, the chorus:
“Oh, I want a girl like the girls on Fox News. Everyone is beautiful, anyone you choose. Whoever does the hiring knows how to light my fuse. I want a girl like the girls on Fox News.”
Cunningham gave an interview about his inspiration for his song to the conservative website WorldNetDaily. He tells them:
“The idea for the song came from a phone conversation I was havin’ with a buddy and I said something like, ‘Have you noticed how good-looking the gals are on Fox News?”
“The Girls Of Fox News” was uploaded to YouTube a month ago, but has only recently gone viral after being passed around among conservative circles and country music sites. The video is inching toward one million views, and the song is available on iTunes.
So who is Cunninham’s favorite Fox News girl?
“If I absolutely HAD to choose one Fox anchor/contributor, I suppose it would have to be Megyn Kelly. She is like the new ‘America’s Sweetheart.’ She, and seriously all these gals, seem to be what our elders used to describe as ‘lovely.’ Meaning looks certainly, but also with qualities like elegance, grace, intelligence, wit and kindness.”
Here’s Austin Cunningham’s “The Girls Of Fox News.” Yeah, it’s a little sexist and it might inspire your liberal gag reflex, but it’s a catchy tune, and even a little sweet.
