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 thoseâ€”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.
