FOX News tries to debate Modern Warfare 2

It wouldn't be a videogame controversy without FOX News trying to have a ham-fisted, awkward and ill-informed debate about it. Modern Warfare 2 has generated all sorts of intelligent and interesting discussion about its infamous "No Russian" level, and FOX does not contribute to that discussion with this embarrassing mess of a segment. Check out the video.

The guy they brought in to defend the game loses his train and thought and seems totally unprepared for even the laziest and most predictable arguments, the guy they got to attack the game actually does a better job of making Modern Warfare 2 look good, and the host desperately tries to spark off a Mass Effect style wave of panic and fails miserably because he clearly knows nothing of the game and doesn't know what's so bad about it outside of "THE TERRORISM!"

Seriously FOX, you're slipping. Even by your standards, this was pathetic.
