Roll Over, Al Jazerra/America, This Blog Has Glox News!

Today, Tom Tomorrow provides another newscast from faraway Glox with two anchor-aliens. Their newscast resembles -Fox- Faux News, and their reports about news are strikingly similar to those on earth, but in a factual science orientated terminology ("Coneheads"-style), thereby making fun of the public obsession with sexual acts of public figures by referring to the global importance of touching reproductive organs. Today, the Glox News team reviews the current Siri'Uh crisis. Of course, the anchor-aliens cut away to "important messages" in the final panel. If this is (fair & balanced) galactic satire, so be it.
