The Soup Tries to Burn Steve Doocy

This week, The Soup (a half-hour E! show that plays reality tv and talk show clips from the past week to humorously illustrate the sad state of television and pop culture) went after one of their favorite right-wing targets: the Fox News morning show, Fox and Friends.

Unfortunately, instead of finding a genuine blunder or kooky moment, The Soup’s host Joel McHale mocked Fox anchor Steve Doocy for joking about a gaffe made by Vice President Joe Biden. The Soup apparently thought it funny to make it seem like it is Steve, not Joe, who’s dumb.

Take a look:

If you’re wondering about the new segment that uses the catty intro for clips from Brian Williams’ show Rock Center, they used to have a link on their website to view it, but currently it goes to an OOPS page. Keep clicking the link. Maybe they’ll finally put it up for all the world to see.
