The Faux News is the second type of fox.

Appearance Edit

The Faux News has reddish-orange fur on its head, with a faded orange tail. It wears a white collared shirt, red tie, dark office blue suit and darker office blue work pants. Held by its right is a bulky video camera, like the ones used to film television and live news. Attached to its right paw is a reporter's microphone, complete with a white box just below the fuzzy black bulb.

Description Edit

Unfair and Unbalanced, this sly fox will stop at nothing to get the latest scoop on anything.

Requirements Edit

Note: Its chance of appearing is high but not guaranteed due to it being a tier 2 animal. It will appear often but not necessarily in every run, and never before 200m.

Notes Edit

  • The Faux News was released on the 25th of January 2017 in version 1.5.0, along with Tundra and all other Tundra animals.
  • The Faux News plays on multiple references. It plays on Fox News, a news company criticised for its level of bias and high influx of fake news, hence the name of the animal: "Faux News", "faux" meaning fake or false. The Faux News overall likens journalists, in particular those of Fox News to foxes themselves: sly, cunning, sneaky, deceitful.
    • The description plays on the former Fox News motto, the motto since the channel's release, "Fair and Balanced", which has since been dropped following mockery given Fox News' criticism over their bias[1], and continues the likening of journalists to a fox.
  • Like most other Tundra descriptions, the description was missing a period at the end.
    • This was corrected in version 1.15.1 on the 19th of April 2018.
