Fox Social Media ParodyFox 4 DFW decided to roast Social Media and what we have are some pretty funny results.

Among the social media company’s roasted are Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare and even popular message and phone service Skype.

The scene opens up like a skit from The Daily Show With Jon Stewart. The stations anchor opens with a breaking story about a shooting, but when they cut to their on the scene correspondents they are so busy using social media that they have no idea what’s happening on the scene.
