Always willing to lend a helping hand, The Colbert Report took to twitter in hopes of helping to put a positive spin on some of the negative press aimed at Fox News.

With word getting out that Fox News staffers had set up thousands of fake commenter accounts across the web, hoping to put a positive spin on any and/or all of their negative press, Stephen Colbert, the warm-hearted individual that he is, wanted to lend a helping hand. So he quickly set his sights on Twitter, having staff writer Rob Dubbin design a bot to take positive reviews from Rotten Tomatoes and swapping in the names of "beloved Fox News shows and personalities." Their promise: Legitimate reviews from 100% people, every two minutes.

Needless to say, the results are outstanding. And since they had the foresight to set this things up over a week, there are already some 5,000+ tweets to dig through. Here's a few recent favorites, but be sure to follow @RealHumanPraise for a steady stream of great!
