Did FOX News just rip off the BioShock Infinite logo?

BioShock Infinite’s star-spangled logo seems to have been re-purposed by FOX News in a situation that its creator Ken Levine has dubbed ironic.

Kotaku reported that the logo was used during the FOX news broadcast above, which ironically adorned an interview with Texas Governer Rick Perry regarding immigration.

Here’s the game logo:

BioShock Infinite was, of course a game about race and class division among many other things, and saw Columbia’s residents worshipping the American founding fathers almost like gods. Has your palm touched your face yet?

Even Ken Levine thought it was ironic:

Well then, what do we all think of that one?

    Politics is generally full of hypocrisy, even though the people saying it know better many times.

    Levine said it best. Forget about copyright, stealing and such. This is the sweet, sweet irony that’s made even sweeter by absolute ignorance of people that stole the logo in the first place.

    It’s hard to know what to properly make of this.

    A lot of people are assuming it’s irony and people missing the point, which is very possible. But it’s also possible someone involved in the process of getting that on screen knew perfectly well what kind of message the logo would send, and the decision to rip off the Bioshock Infinite logo was deliberate. Either to mock Fox, or to subtly expose the company knowing full well how stupid a lot of their content is yet going through with it anyway because it makes plenty of money for them.
