Tom Tomorrow Has Created The Unique News Format For The Post-November 8th World

Today, Tom Tomorrow (Dan Perkins) gives prime-time coverage to Biff & Wanda, the blow-dried anchorpeople of "Action McNews" — Tom Tomorrow's sneering tribute to lamestream media news shows. In a way it is fitting because the circus AKA the 2016 campaign has swelled the lamestream media into a role of participant, rather than observer/analyst. Biff & Wanda and their writers have given up and have sunk to an objective test instead of reporting the news. Perhaps this is a blueprint for a new Faux News format. If this is (fair & balanced) bull$hit, so be it.
