Fox News Goes All Infomercial with Marlon Wayans

It kinda made sense for Fox and Friends to have Marlon Wayans on Thursday morning to talk about Lindsay Lohan, celebrity, and Jennifer Lopez’s rise from the Fox Network’s original 1980s series In Living Color to platinum recording artist/American Idol judge.

Marlon’s gum chewing was kinda weirding me out and thanks to F&F co-host Steve Doocey, it all became clear: The comic’s appearance was a tragically forced attempt to promote a brand of gum. Just the gum. Not how the chewing gum company is donating to <insert cause here> or promoting <good deeds here>. Just that they sell gum.

That doesn’t seem very fair or balanced to the advertisers…
