Here is the scoop on Faux News Network:
Faux News Network (FNN) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Strange Worlds Publishing (SWP). Oddly, the CEO of FNN and SWP have the same name. Even odder, SWP only publishes books from one author and that author has the same name as the CEO’s and they are all named Hank Quense.
Here at Faux News Network, we dedicate ourselves to giving you, our readers, an alternative viewpoint of modern reality. We scour the newspapers and the web looking for issues and debates that demand a more nuance, balanced viewpoint than the biased media can give you.
Faux News Network has a large staff of reporters who cover the galaxy searching for tidbits of satiric information to titillate our readers. Two of the FNN reporters even cover a parallel universe.

* Military reporter: Sam Kung-Fu: Sam is a retired super-hero who has saved the world at least three times and the entire galaxy twice.
* Political reporter: Stacy Conundrum: Stacy has a master’s degree in criminal psychology which makes her a natural to cover the Washington news beat.
*Crime Reporter: Guiseppe, “Joey the Nose” Linguine. Despite being in the Witness Protection Program, Joey the Nose has many contacts on both sides of the law that provide him with vital information that occasionally is factual.
* Culture reporter: Marcia Hammerhead: Marcia is a cultural snob of the first order. She claims to enjoy Milton and other unintelligible epic poets. She disdains most modern literature and detests genre fiction.
* Zaftan 31B reporter: Chazerei: is a trained assassin, Chazerei is the perfect reporter to cover zaftan affairs since she can relate to the zaftans in the street, all of whom relish murder and treachery
* Consumer Affairs reporter: Elsie Cheap-Skater. Cheap-Skater is a serial shoplifter with years of experience in comparing the value of consumer products. She studied the subject during her years in the state prison.
Local News Reporter: Lois Nosey. Nosey has a life-long desire to know what everyone is up to and doesn’t mind getting insulted by strangers for butting into the strangers’ affairs.
* Religious reporter: Matthew Mark Lukejohn: Lukejohn has been expelled from a number of religions and is under interdict from three separate major religions. At least two others have taken out contracts to have him whacked.
* Gundarland Reporter: Sandra Elfenheimer: Sandra is a pseudonym for someone who we have not been able to identify. We really don’t know if her reports are true or fictional.
* Travel Reporter (including time travel): Gina Vagabond. Gina is a stay-at-home mom who travels the galaxy using the quantum computer in her bedroom.
* Science Reporter: Sue Entropy. Ms. Entropy has several degrees in non-science specialities allowing her to take scientific jargon and interpret it ways that even science majors can’t understand.
* Health/Medical Reporter: Ben Angioplast: Ben is an advocate of home surgery and lectures extensively on that subject. HIs latest book describes how to perform kidney transplants on your kitchen table.
* Entertainment reporter: Mia Diversion: Mia is a grumpy old soul who hates TV, movies and live entertainment.

* Research supervisor: Ian Inquisitive: Ian is working on his high school equivalency degree after which he will attempt to enroll in a college.
* Office manager, janitor and Chief Counsel: Jan Obtuse. Jan is exceptionally intelligent. This leads everyone to assume she took the janitor job because she is a spy for a rival network.
