Journalists Rip Fox News 'Meet the Trumps' Special — Particularly for This Opening Sequence

"I agree it's like something you might see on the state-owned TV station in a tiny country somewhere."

Fox News host Greta Van Susteren was widely criticized Thursday night for her "Meet the Trumps" special which many likened to propaganda fit to air on a state-run television network.

The hour-long special, which featured interviews with several members of Trump's family, included an opening sequence that drew scorn from Van Susteren's peers in the press.

"A glimpse of what state media will look like after Glorious Leader Trump is victorious," MSNBC host Chris Hayes tweeted.

"I agree it's like something you might see on the state-owned TV station in a tiny country somewhere," echoed senior Fortune writer Mathew Ingram.

"Kill me," wrote BuzzFeed's Andrew Kaczynski.

"Shout out to North Korea," opined the Globe and Mail's Andrew Woo.

"The worst sitcom in history or informercial posing as journalism? Maybe both?" asked Daily Caller contributor Derek Hunter.
