    'OUTFOXED'

    Discussion started by casekonly - May 6, 2005

    "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. 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."

    Director/Producer Robert Greenwald has produced and/or directed 53 television movies, miniseries and features. He is the director of Uncovered and the Executive Producer of the UN series - Unprecedented, Uncovered and the soon to be released Unconstitutional.

    If you like it, buy it...I picked mine up for $9...

    The movie is pretty solid and O'Reilly gets his card pulled. A friend of mine did point out however that it really only goes after the shock jock ass faces on the channel and doesn't give enough time to the mentality of the viewers, how the news during the more traditional "reporting" periods is biased and a few other points...
