Fox News Asks if NBA Jam is Bi-Partisan

In a recent Fox News piece on the hidden political characters in NBA Jam, co-host Jenna Lee (Thanks Joystiq) asked EA Sports head Peter Moore if giving President Obama’s character special abilities in the game was “bi-partisan,” an ironic question perhaps, given the network that the question was posed on.

Moore remained nonplussed, answering, “We try and be non-partisan in what we do.” He continued, “But at the same time, the President, who as you know is a pretty good hoops player himself… ah, we try to represent his skills there.”

Kotaku’s resident sports game guru Owen Good broke down the skills of a few politicians, and asked if it was “really necessary to give all of the Republicans an 8-out-of-10 rating in ‘steal’?" Cheney’s in-game character features a “9” rating (out of 10) for shot blocking, while ex-President George W Bush has a “3” rating for clutch. Obama features an “8” rating for dunking (the same as Cheney’s), while Biden, with a speed rating of “7,” is actually faster than POTUS.

    I remember one time, I had a pool party at my uncle’s house. And one of the guests brought their baby brother with them into the pool. And he took a dump right in it. The green-apple splatters kind.

    Fox news has managed to outdo him in sucking the fun out of every goddamn thing on the planet.

    So, just exactly what network do you think could pose that question without it being ironic?  From where I sit, all of them are horridly biased, Fox is just biased the other way from the rest.
