Fox News 'Defends the Homeland' by ripping off the BioShock Infinite logo


Fox News hates video games, but the conservative news station seems to have taken a liking to Irrational Games' BioShock Infinite.

During a segment focused on "Defending the Homeland" from immigrants, Fox posted a logo that looks awfully similar to that of BioShock Infinite's. From the overall shape to the finer details like the stars, it's clear someone at Fox is a gamer.

What's funny is that of all the games to steal a logo from Fox News chose the one that, ironically, is about a bunch of religious, racist zealots trying to rid their floating city of Columbia from immigrants. In the game, the Founders, a political party that promotes ultra-nationalism, uses propaganda posters to call for patriots to arm themselves against foreigners and anarchists. Sound familiar?

Even BioShock creator Ken Levine had a good laugh about it, posting "Glad to help, Fox. Glad to help," on his Facebook page.

You can see the logo in action during a replay of "Fox & Friends" below.

What's more, this isn't even the first time conservatives borrowed a piece of art from BioShock Infinite. Last year, the Tea Party used an image from the game meant to satirize conservative groups like the Tea Party.
