Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch's War On (Journalism) - Greenwald, Robert
Releasedatum: 30 juli 2004
For the first time ever, this documentary reveals the secrets of former Fox news producers, reporters, bookers and writers who expose what it's like to work for Fox News. These former Fox employees talk about how they were forced to push a right-wing point of view or risk their jobs. As one employee said, "There's no sense of integrity as far as having a line that can't be crossed." 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. OUTFOXED first examines media mogul Rupert Murdoch and the Australian company News Corp. tracing how the FCC helped Murdoch break the rules to establish a fourth network in the United States. The film explores Murdoch's burgeoning kingdom and the impact on society when a broad swath of media is controlled by one person. The team behind OUTFOXED created a system to monitor Fox News 24 hours a day for months to discover exactly how its shows worked. A team of volunteers around the country scruntized every hour of Fox News programming, noting examples of bias in its coverage. The result is an intense examination of Fox News and the lie inherent in its favorite motto, "Fair and Balanced."
