Robert Greenwald teams with journalist Alexandra Kitty in an even more
detailed and updated examination of how media empires, led by Rupert
Murdoch's Fox News, have been running a "race to the bottom" in
television news. They examine media consolidation by focusing on the
Fox News Channel: How did Fox gain prominence? How did the Fox News
Channel gain audiences and influence public debate? How does Fox
report reality? Is the network merely interpreting events or is it
pushing propaganda? Who are the main players and how do they treat
their friends and enemies? Why should readers care about how Fox takes
liberties with its facts?
Each chapter blends interviews from Greenwald's documentary,
transcripts from Fox programs, and other research pertaining to Fox
News not only to illustrate the Fox "mentality," but also to show the
factual, ethical and structural problems with the news channel.
Interviews and transcripts are analyzed to give readers a strong sense
of what Fox is actually telling its audiences.
