Like the R.E.M. song above? So does Fox News, which used it during their coverage of the Democratic National Convention last night. Michael Stipe and his bandmates are not amused, telling Fox News not to do that ever again. “We have little or no respect for their puff adder brand of reportage. Our music does not belong there,” Stipe says. Which “puff adder” was Stipe referring to, this one or this one? (Side note: We’re assuming Roger Ailes is not sweating this, considering he’s reportedly negotiating a massive new contract at the moment.)
