'Corporate' Finale Exploits 9/11 in Attempt to Provoke Fox News

Thu, 03/15/2018 - 04:07
<p>The writers of Comedy Central’s anti-business <em>Corporate </em>are exploiting the tragedy of 9/11 to get a rise out of conservative viewers. Star Jake Weisman told <em>The Daily Beast, </em>“Honestly, I want Fox News to see it and I want them to get really mad,” regarding their season finale mocking the tragedy that resulted in the deaths of 2,996 people. <em>Corporate </em>writers are apparently oblivious to irony as this week’s episode exploits 9/11 in order to portray businesses as exploiting 9/11 for monetary gain. Clearly pandering to a liberal audience’s desire to see corporations accused of egregious evils, Wednesday’s finale, “Remember Day,” features a fictitious world where a business attempts to turn the anniversary of 9/11 into a profit making national holiday, complete with goose dinners, office parties, and red, white, and blue apparel.</p>
