The local FOX station in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas recorded a segment satirizing social media called “The Fox 4 DFW Roast of Social Media” and it’s pretty funny. Facebook, Foursquare, Skype and Twitter are all spoofed, and we have the YouTube video here.
The anchor opens up with breaking news about a gunman on the loose in City Hall, but every correspondent on the scene is so involved in social media technology that he or she has lost touch with what’s actually happening.
The station uploaded the video to its Facebook page, and then it appeared on YouTube courtesy of the Dallas Observer. The video debuted at the Lone Star Emmy Awards, a ceremony that highlights excellence in local news broadcasts in the region.
