Fox News Rips off BioShock Infinite’s Logo in Its “Defending the Homeland” Segment

July 4, 2014 Written by Paulmichael Contreras

Fox News likes to take cheap or absurd jabs at the video game industry, as we have seen before. This time, however, it looks like the station has taken to practically copying the logo of a beloved franchise – BioShock!

As can be seen below, the logo sitting behind the anchorpersons probably looks familiar to many a gamer. That’s because it is cookie-cutter close to the logo for BioShock Infinite. Take a look for yourself.

Here’s a screengrab from the Fox broadcast:

Now here’s the official BioShock Infinite logo:

Looks a little too close for comfort, wouldn’t you say? Irrational Games’ own Ken Levine tweeted a kind/sarcastic “you’re welcome” message to the news outlet, saying simply “Glad to help, Fox. Glad to help,” followed by “It’s not the irony of that Fox news thing that bothers me so much. It’s the typesetting.” That IS some pretty bad kerning, isn’t it Levine?
