While I already knew a fair bit about the shady coverage Fox News engages in this documentary had bits of information I hadn't heard before. The film contain a good amount of the history of Fox News before it was bought by Rupert Murdoch who turned it into a conservative idea pusher. They even managed to get internal Fox memos from murdoch telling the anchors to focus on certain news stories to affect politics in the USA.

Bill O'Reilly is known for is completely bias interviews and the generally unprofessional manner in which he conducts them. In the film they interview a person about their experience being interviewed on his show. They also look at the childish techniques of demonizing their guests and how they use straw-men liberals to validate their ideology.

Outfoxed offers a unique look into the Fox News propaganda machine.

I'll admit that I've never been a fan of FOX news. The few times I've watched it, I've been annoyed by its glossy, glitzy sensationalist approach to the news. Well, so much for that--I prefer to get my news via the internet. But the documentary OUTFOXED from director Robert Greenwald argues that FOX news is more than just a tacky news programme. According to the filmmaker, the FOX channel--owned by right-wing media mogul Rupert Murdoch--pipes propaganda into millions of homes throughout the world.

The documentary includes many interviews from former FOX television employees--some left, some were sacked, and some were eased out. But they all have the same story--participate in the party line, or you're out. Internal FOX memos are shown detailing how presenters are prompted to play up certain events and kill other stories. Various media watchdogs also appear--including Peter Hart from Fairness and Accuracy on Reporting (FAIR)--and these interviewees analyze the techniques FOX applies to its programming. And these techniques range from dirty (smear campaigns), nasty, hate mongering, and intimidation (Bill O'Reilly) to downright tricky. One of the best portions of the film shows O'Reilly 'interviewing' Jeremy Glick, the son of a man killed on 9-11. When Glick dares to voice an opinion, O'Reilly rudely shouts down his guest, and then subsequent footage show how the guest's comments were horribly distorted over an 11-month period.

According to the film, FOX news has its share in the responsibility of the fear mongering that took place in the build-up to the war. As part of a concerted Strategy of Tension, FOX hyped fears. After watching some of the footage, I was surprised the news presenters didn't sink to wearing gas masks while on air.

I find it interesting how right-wing conservatives will attack this documentary apparently without having seen it. It is admittedly hard-hitting, but rightly so (pun intended!). Walter Kronkite and other respected journalists find FNC's tactics not only NOT "fair and balanced," but contrary to all good journalistic practice. One only has to see some of the exchanges between Bill O'Reilly and those guests with whom he disagrees to conclude that FNC's agenda is to serve as a 24/7 promotion of the Repulican agenda -- not to provide "fair and balanced" news.

So Bill O'Reilly interviews the son of a 9/11 victim, then over the next year he keeps referring back to the interview and lies about what the kid said. And the young man inquires about suing O'Reilly for defamation. The legal opinion: you'd have to prove that O'Reilly knew he was lying - and he lies so pathologically, all the time, about everything and everyone, that it would be hard to prove that he knew he was lying. <sigh>

This is something that everyone needs to see so they can make there own judgement and see how the media is shaping the news to what see and don't see, what we hear and don't hear. "PURE CENSORSHIP" and it has an agenda.

Do the conservatives out there not realize that Clear Channel owns 4 out of the 5 news networks available? Liberal-biased my butt. Clear Channel is one of the largest consevative donators in the U.S.
Tom Hicks purchased the Texas Rangers from George W. Bush and other investors for $250 million. From an initial investment of $600,000 George W. profited $14.9 million on the transaction.
On January 22, 2001, President Bush designates Michael Powell, son of Secretary of State Colin Powell as Chairman of the FCC.
Tom Hicks then becomes Vice Chairman of Clear Channel Radio.
On June 2nd, 2003, FCC Chairman Michael Powell voted to loosen media ownership rules.
Clear Channel goes from owning 36 radio stations (two below the legal limit at the time) to over 1200!
Now, you know what this means, right?
If one media corporation owns more and more of the market, we the public get a narrower news perspecive. How are we as citizens supposed to make up our own mind when we're not given all sides of the story?
You should try following un-biased news station period. I watch FoxNews all the time at work and I am amazed at how suppress the liberal perspective all the time. You deny it, it's completely true.
