When: December 2012
It came as a great surprise to many fans when they found out that Korean pop star Psy is a political satirist...even though "Gangnam Style" is a political satire. When news broke that the artist had recorded a song critical of the U.S., entitled "Dear America," outrage flowed openly on Fox News. The network was incensed at Psy's lyrics that begin, "Kill those—Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives."
The problem is, these lyrics are based on a bad translation. In more accurate translations, the lyrics are still certainly anti-American, but they aren't nearly as bloodthirsty. Regardless of the facts, Fox News ran with the story, and Hannity strained to link Psy's anti-Americanism and President Obama.
