3:09 During the first few years that Murdoch’s ownership of Fox’s DC affiliate, he had a hands-off approach to new content; partially due to their success. One day orders came from Murdoch’s offices that the network should cut away from their regularly scheduled program and broadcast the RNC’s fawning tribute to Reagan: “we were ordered, from the top, to carry propaganda; Republican, right-wing propaganda”. It foreshadowed what Fox News would later become.

6:30 Former Fox News reporters and bookers say that they are afraid to be seen “talking to the wrong people”. Working for Fox meant you were constantly being monitored. It created a culture of fear. If you challenged the heads of the network On ideological matters, you were history.

10:45 “Some People Say” – FOX uses the phrase “some people say” to mask opinion as news.

19:04 Fox News contributors are under paid contract for their appearance; if they deviate from the party lines, they might not get asked back onto shows.

21:22 Fox News went after Richard Clarke as soon as it was apparent that he was going to paint the Bush administration in a bad light. For Fox News, “mudding” arguments is almost as good as winning them. So, they didn’t need to definitely prove that Clarke, a former member of the Bush Administration, was angling for a position in a Kerry Whitehouse, they just had to make it look like a possibility.

22:28 They put weak-looking , lesser known liberals up against photogenic, self-assured conservatives.

26:29 Republicans accounted for 83% of the guests while Democrats accounted for 17% of guest on the network’s most prestigious show. Of those democrats, most were either centrist or conservative.

27:50 Stories they Cover…Stories they Ignore – Management set the tone for stories: Jesse Jackson was always to be painted in a negative light, as were immigrants. Culture war issues – abortion, affirmative action, gay marriage – were often covered while ignoring issues regarding the economy, health care, and the environment.

34:38 O’Reilly’s show is a good example of everything that is wrong with Fox News —
Stories are selected to prop-up the Republican party and their point of view; O’Reilly is very hostile to guest who disagrees with him; and he distorts and misrepresent things.

42:00 Many Fox News stories are meant to generate fear; for example, stories about what to do if there’s a “dirty bomb” attack. Fear is a great motivator and organizer; even when there is no real evidence for it. Terrorism is the ultimate fear-baiting; and when people are fearful, they are more likely to support military interventions. Talking about terrorism also means that you can avoid talking about other issues, like the economy.

46:29 Fox made the decision to present the Iraq war as a success. “The senior producer told the two or three writers for her news hour…’now, just keep in mind that it’s all good. This is such a fair and balance issue. Keep it positive. We got to emphasize all the good we are doing”.

48:43 Knowledge Networks Poll – It’s a simple survey about fact regarding current events. The more likely people were to watch Fox News, the more misinformed they were and the more likely they were to back the Bush Administration.

50:49 Fox News repeats and propagates the Republican Party platform. It was widely known that the Fox reporter covering the 2000 Bush campaign was married to a Bush campaigner. This wouldn’t have been allowed at CNN.

52:47 Election Night 2000 – The first guy to call the election for Bush was the head of Fox’s New’s election analyze division; Bush’s first cousin. He called it a clear win, when in fact it was too close too call.

59:16 The Republican send out “the message of the day” so that conservative talk radio, Fox News, and Republican elected officials will all be talking about the same issues, in the same way.

58:41 2004 Election; coverage of Bush was always glowing, while Kerry was shown in a negative light.

1:02:51 During the 2004 election, Fox News painted a very rosy picture of the American economy and by selecting statistics which showed just that. Of course, they credited Bush for the “good” economy. When the stock market had a bad day, they claimed it was because of fear over the prospect of a Kerry presidency.

1:05:28 Murdoch is foremost a politician and this is what makes him dangerous.

1:06:57 The Fox Effect – It made other news organization more conservative because they saw how well Fox did.

1:09:13 A Call to Action – Media control is a political issue. People need to demand accuracy.

    Murdoch looks like a wrinkled old scrotum. Jerry Hall must have to sleep
    with a sick bag by her bedside, being a model she is probably used to
    constantly throwing up.

    Why is David Brock discussing this here and yet used the media in 2016 to slander and ultimately help to try to destroy Bernie Sanders, the only candidate who is not beholden to the media and other special interests. Fucking pisses me right off, 2 minutes in.

    I had heard how bad Fox News was here in Britain but had no idea JUST how bad. Reminds me of 'Media Break' from the original Robocop movies – only worse! That said, we have similar here with Murdoch's newspapers and other right wing titles. Thanks' for putting this up.

    I started watching FOX from the UK for a laugh… shocking and so aggressive and baseline. But all channels are the same. THE BBC is renowned for fair and balanced reporting but still serves the Rothschilds' and monarchy – they just more sly. Thank Jesus for the internet…

    I watch fox, russia today and al jazeera and compare headlines, reports of the day…

    Fox female presenters look like porn stars –

    break out of the LEFT / RIGHT construct and be freeeeeeee

    When there was a tie between Bush and Gore in 2000, all the other networks were just DNC spin.
    FOXNEWS presented both sides, and has been #1 in ratings every since.

    Wow! All this I just found out by just searching the internet to find out why Trump was in a positive light from Fox news with friends. Now I find out I was worked over like others, because all I can remember is about John Kerry is that he Flip Flopped. It would be funny to see Democrats do that with Trump. Show clips of what Fox News said about Kerry and say if you thought it was bad with Kerry (Flip Flopping), why is it okay with Trump. Btw this election is a joke and I see Fox is struggling with this one, trying to make something so bad look good, but if Charles Taze Russell and the ones after him can brain wash millions of people without them knowing it, I'm sure Fox News will pull off many more feats.

    Haha, so fox news is where Trump gets his signature "people are saying", "some people are saying".

    Typical conservative response.


    Notice, they don't deny that FNC lies. They justify it by saying that other stations are just as activist in the other direction.

    I guess ALL media should be left wing. Maybe we could get rid of the republican party and be a one party democrat dictatorship. That way, we could all be a bunch of progressive libtards celebrating big government, high taxes, on-demand abortion, open boarders, the gay agenda, islamic invasion, burning the flag, black lives matter cop killing terrorist groups and every anti american, socialist, communist, anti God athiest hate group out there. The democrat party is one big gigantic shit sandwich.

    9/11 was a product of Mossad, the dual-citizen Zionists, and the KM, with the blessing of the Jesuits who like it. O'Really is a puppet of the Jesuits. They have their hand right up his ass, and he likes it. It's a perfect marriage.

    Jeremy Glick is clearly mentally unstable and, by all appearances, hopped up on drugs. When he started ranting about George H. W. Bush's tenure as Director of Central Intelligence (1976-1977), was O'Reilly really supposed to pretend that there was any substance to Glick's inane ramblings? Given that Glick is profoundly ignorant on even the basic facts of the matter–i.e., what year the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan, the distinction between the "Afghan Arabs" and the native mujaheddin, the reality that American intervention in Afghanistan saved lives on an enormous scale–O'Reilly should not have stood aside and passively allowed Glick to mislead viewers.

    flip-flopping pandering sounds like Hillary Clinton that evil witch would do anything to get in office you have any doubts all I can say is watch the Clinton murders yes they have their own documentary about how many murders have been tied to its astonishing but I'm sure they didn't do anything wrong

    just because we didn't find nuclear biological chemical weapons doesn't mean they don't have them the scary part is their mindset is so unstable because their life is bent on religion that they are willing to die and destroy the world to their belief

  44. Idunow ?

    December 21, 2016 4:27 am

    seems to me that most people rules are protesting in the military movement action or what have you live in an ivory Tower and not the common people that walk the streets of America everyday

    December 21, 2016 4:27 am

    Bush liberated Iraq which was wonderful one problem is Iran is taking over Iraq the plan wasn't thought through very thoroughly why did we leave oil behind for the Iraqis to take why did we leave the Iranian people with no protection that was the problem if you ask me they both need to be destroyed
