Fox News have unveiled a “breathtakingly ridiculous” new newsroom, full of Star Trek style screens and comically huge tablet computers. In a video posted on their website yesterday, perma-tanned anchor Shepard Smith took viewers on a tour of the ludicrous new facility, a base for the Murdoch owned right-wing network’s new headline news show.
