In other news: The sun will come up tomorrow

Media Matters states the obvious. Although it does have this information from an insider:

Asked what most viewers and observers of Fox News would be surprised to learn about the controversial cable channel, a former insider from the world of Rupert Murdoch was quick with a response: “I don’t think people would believe it’s as concocted as it is; that stuff is just made up.”

Indeed, a former Fox News employee who recently agreed to talk with Media Matters confirmed what critics have been saying for years about Murdoch’s cable channel. Namely, that Fox News is run as a purely partisan operation, virtually every news story is actively spun by the staff, its primary goal is to prop up Republicans and knock down Democrats, and that staffers at Fox News routinely operate without the slightest regard for fairness or fact checking.

  1. This is shocking! When I worked for TIME magazine top editor Grunewald created cover stories by seeking if possible staged photos to suit his liberal lead story. He asked to get black kids shielded from stone throwing bigots boarding a bus, etc. Does anybody care that editorial grand standing is part of commercial media? Whatever sells ads or newspapers is part of creating demand for money. Shocking! PBS has a viewership of relatives and retirement homes with 2 channels. FOX has a viewership that wants stories on bathing beauties, glamour looking gals doing the news, and hansome guys. Fat old frumpy people are no place not even on PBS!
