Roger Ailes is the real life J. Jonah Jameson, isn't he? (Spoilery, so watch out if you care about that sort of thing.)

So my boss taped this Fox News article about the events of Captain America #25 to my terminal today (yeah, I know, she likes Fox... forgive her, she knows not what she does!). One line in particular stood out to me (here's the spoilery part):

"...the former World War II soldier is gunned down on the steps of a courthouse by a sniper's bullet, a victim of a war on terror."

(Emphasis mine.)

Now, admittedly, I haven't been reading Civil War or any of the related garbage, but even I know that any connection between this and a war on terror of any kind is tenuous at best, no matter what sort of allegorical spin Marvel tries to put on this in its press releases. This leads me to believe that either Fox employees get some sort of bonus every time they're able to make some sort of vague link to terrorism ("Fox News - always looking for boogeymen, and inventing them when necessary!"), or else Fox News chairman Roger Ailes is the real world equivalent of J. Jonah Jameson, forever banging on his desk and yelling at his reporters to bring him incriminating news about his own personal Spider-Man.

If I was a betting man, I'd lay money down on the former, but the geek in me desperately hopes it's the latter.
