        Mirriam Websters Encyclopedia of Literature
        defines irony (Latin ironia, from Greek eironeia feigned ignorance, irony, a derivative of eiron dissembler) as:

        The use of words to express something other than and especially the opposite of the literal meaning (as expressions of praise where blame is meant).

        Fictio cedit veritati, used here, is intentionally ironic.

        I am certain that even FOX's strongest supporters recognize its natura (nāscī and raison d'etre) is as a corporate propaganda machine.
