FOX NEWS INSIDER: “Stuff Is Just Made Up”


"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

Wow! An "insider" told the great Media Matters (not too biased) that Fox News is "concocted"?Give me a break! Well there's a big story. Yawn.

Is he also selling a Howard Hughes autobiography? LOL!

I agree that Media Matters does not reveal the anonymous source.

One doesn't need Media Matters to tell us the truth about Fox News. It's been proven numerous times with their crazy headlines on FoxNews.com and when one reads the story, one finds that there is absolutely no truth to the headline that Fox slapped on story. What's particularly interesting are the number of readers who only read the headlines and base their knowledge of something on that untruthful headline. It would be funny if it weren't so pathetic.

Proof that a whole lot of people don't mind being lied to and manipulated.

Yeah, that must be it. It's always the bad products the are the most successful. Especially in television news these days, not much competition.

But wait, they must be using mind control. Or it's that people are so dumb. They are so easily led, they just don't know the truth. Maybe it's the left's message, they're just not getting it.

I think it was Plato that said that people in a democracy will harm themselves because they are too lazy to find the truth. Walter Lippman has some interesting things to say about the public being like a herd to public opinion put out by media. Since our media is ran by corporation (for the most part) we hear their message over and over again. Fox really takes it to the extreme.

Fox just does a much better job with the news, period,

I'm not talking about the opinion shows, which you will like or dislike according to whichever way you lean. I just started watching Fox because they do a better job. I noticed that CNN was not that good at it anymore. And MSNBC, well they're not really in the same league of even CNN.

It's interesting to see all the gymnastics going on from the left to try and present reasons why Fox has been on top for so long and by so much, but they are somehow the worst.
