Fox News Loves Robert Niles

October 20, 2014, 12:09 PM ·

While getting my daily dose of misinformation today on Fox News, I noticed that they quoted the the owner/operator of ThemeParkInsider.com our very own Ricky Brigante (who?) in an article about theme park fansites. Here's the link:

This will probably get fixed by the time that most of you see it, but it is rather ironic since Robert has been very adamant about maintaining that Fox News misinforms their patrons. In this case, he was right. It's just too bad that it is in an article that's about him - sort of. ;^)

As much as I hate given those hacks a click, I had to go look for myself. I snagged a screen grab, just in case anyone over there corrects it. (Hahahaha!)

Screen grab

And, yeah, the link comes to us.

Hilarious! Thanks for the laugh, Tim.

So, Robert(or should I say "Ricky?"), how many aliases do you have?

It's not the aliases; it's the disguises that are the real trick.

Since changed to "The same goes for Ricky Brigante, whose insidethemagic.net covers the major theme parks, including Disney, Universal, SeaWorld and Busch Gardens."

And here is the Proof......

For a while there, I thought Robert/Ricky was a double agent - the Deep Throat of the theme park industry.

Think about it, a stint with The Rocky Mountain News, then the LA Times, and now all of a sudden writing articles under a pseudonym for the Death Star of the news industry, Fox News. This is a serious case of Bipolar News Reporting Disorder folks!

Robert is now trying to become JK Rowling and Robert Galbraith... Hahahahaha

I'm just upset that Ricky did not appear to have filed anything during his brief tenure as our editor. Hey, someone's gotta keep that front page filled! ;^)

LOL. Inside The Magic is actually a pretty decent website. Don't think it's better than this one, but it's solid enough.
