Outfoxed - Documentary


"Outfoxed" examines how media empires, led by Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News, have been running a "race to the bottom" in television news. This film provides an in-depth look at Fox News and the dangers of ever-enlarging corporations taking control of the public’s right to know.

The film explores Murdoch’s burgeoning kingdom and the impact on society when a broad swath of media is controlled by one person.

Media experts, including Jeff Cohen (FAIR) Bob McChesney (Free Press), Chellie Pingree (Common Cause), Jeff Chester (Center for Digital Democracy) and David Brock (Media Matters) provide context and guidance for the story of Fox News and its effect on society.

This documentary also reveals the secrets of Former Fox news producers, reporters, bookers and writers who expose what it’s like to work for Fox News.AA These former Fox employees talk about how they were forced to push a "right-wing" point of view or risk their jobs. Some have even chosen to remain anonymous in order to protect their current livelihoods. As one employee said "There’s no sense of integrity as far as having a line that can’t be crossed." [via]

As a wise ninja once said, ‘Know your enemy’. In the case of Fox News, ‘knowing’ may put you at risk of falling victim to the fake news and it’s ignorance - so tread lightly.

Outfoxed is a documentary by Robert Greenwald which investigates the political agenda of the Fox cable news channel, it’s methods, talking heads, etc. Basically, the film shows you just how serious Fox really is about disseminating ignorance and hate - and pushing it’s own political agenda.
