Remember when your parents used slang to be cool with you? Yeah.. This is 10 times worse.
WTOL Fox 11 in Toledo, Ohio is now the latest Fox news station to try to stay relevant with teens.
News broadcasters did a whole segment using slang to get Toledo Public School system students motivated for state testing.

Actually, Fox 11 in Toledo isn’t even the first news station to do this type of thing. Fox 4 in Kansas City, Missouri did this last fall.
Here’s what that looked like..
Although Fox 4 and Fox 11 did this with good intention it seriously missed its intended audience.
Or maybe, hear me out here, this was their plot all along. To go viral and get those infamous clicks.
