On Wednesday night, Stephen Colbert, host of Comedy Central's The Colbert Report (a fake news show in which Colbert often portrays conservative political pundits), ridiculed Fox News for its way of reporting on the Latino community.

We understand that some misguided folks portray undocumented immigrants like some kind of horror movie, but this is a bit much. In a segment called "The Grapevine," Fox News referred to undocumented youth as "children of the corn," in a screen graphic displayed at the top of their broadcast, reports the Huffington Post.

Aubrey O'Day was a guest on Sean Hannity's Fox News show yesterday (yeah, we have no freaking idea why either) and actually sort of impressed us. Hannity prompted a discussion in reference to Congresswoman Watson's recent comment that Fidel Castro was "one of the more brilliant people she has ever met," to which O'Day responded that she had also met Castro (huh?!) and that she agreed.

And the most unlikely celebrity feud of 2009 continues! Jessica Alba took to her MySpace blog yesterday to fire back at Fox News anchor Bill O'Reilly, who wrongly suggested that the actress is a "pinhead" who can't keep her neutral countries straight. (The horror! Too bad he was the wrong one.)

Oh, no she didn't! Jessica Alba got a little too honest on the red carpet for the Declare Yourself Inaugural Party. Alba was the face of the Declare Yourself campaign last year and although the actress is notoriously wary of the paparazzi, she stopped voluntarily to talk to the media at the event.
