Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch’s War on Journalism
Outfoxed examines how media empires, led by Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News, have been running a “race to the bottom” in television news. An in-depth look at Fox News and the dangers of ever-enlarging corporations take control of the public’s right to know.
Murdoch’s burgeoning kingdom and the impact on society are explored 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.
Secrets of Former Fox news producers, reporters, bookers and writers who expose what it’s like to work for Fox News, are revealed. 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.”
