Sources tell me that a group of forward-thinking fundamentalist Christians is raising funds to purchase the decommissioned space shuttle Discovery currently on display at the Smithsonian Institution.
What are they going to do with it? That's the amazing part. The group plans to use the Discovery to transport equipment into leased space on the International Space Station, allowing it to broadcast the entire Fox News lineup into the far reaches of space. Yes, that means Sean, Megyn, O'Reilly and the rest of the gang may one day be available throughout the Universe (signal power will initially be limited to our own solar system).
What the group expects to gain from the endeavor is unknown. But I can confirm that neither Rupert Murdoch or News Corp. is involved in the costly effort.
Which raises a series of thorny issues:
Why are the fundamentalists spending millions to promote Fox News rather than their own well-traveled message that is currently enjoying much success in the Third World, if not America and Europe?
Will Megyn Kelly's sexy appeal "play well" beyond Earth?
How will Neilsen measure the increase in Fox viewership (assuming there is life on other planets)?
What do NASA and Scott Kelly think?
I'll address those questions in a future post.
