Employees Expose FOX NEWS’ Distortions

FOX News: “Fair and balanced” because they say so!

A brief but shocking compilation from the documentary:
“OUTFOXED: Rupert Murdoch’s War on Journalism”
http://www.outfoxed.org/

As Rupert Murdoch’s ‘war on journalism’ hits new lows, droves of disgruntled employees are confessing their many misdeeds, brought upon by the Soviet-Union-esque environment they faced at FOX News. Watch how FOX executives dictate their bias by forcing reporters to follow memos that predetermine what they can say and how they should say it.

Rupert Murdoch has decided that the best approach to journalism is to parade opinions dressed-up as News. The reason is simple: No one can disprove an opinion, and therefore, credibility is easier to maintain. Should they ever be caught lying, the legal process affords them protection under the First Amendment. We also have Congress to thank for the bright idea of passing a rider Bill (hidden) to deregulate the News Media.

That’s right; Corporate News entities can tell lies and distort the news as they please, and it’s all perfectly legal.

To the best of my knowledge, no country can have or maintain democracy without an honest Press or, at least, one that can be held accountable. But where is ours?

Not convinced? “Florida Appeals Court ruled that there is absolutely nothing illegal in a major media organization lying, concealing or distorting information”: http://www.netfeed.com/~jhill/RupertM…
