Fox Entertainment

People still refer to the Fox Entertainment channel as a source of 'news' but there's a reason they are called 'entertainment' channel. In that case you are allowed to exaggerate and even lie because that's 'funny' and if you don't like to be insulted 'you have no sense of humour'.

But why is it considered normal for rivers and mountains to be 'discovered' in Africa by European explorers although the locals have known that river of mountain for centuries?
