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.
