Fair and Balanced, My Ass!: An Unbridled Look at the Bizarre Reality of Fox News Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fair and Balanced, My Ass! is a wide-ranging, irreverent, and humorous look at America's number-one cable news network. It examines Fox's phony patriotism and piety, its dishonest crusades, its well-defined agenda, and ratings–driven techniques. The authors deliver a hearty slap down to the jewels in the Murdoch crown, including Bill O'Reilly, Hannity and Colmes, Fox and Friends, and more.

Synopsis:

Ten years ago, Rupert Murdoch's Fox News Channel premiered to millions of cable subscribers across America. Murdoch's grand experiment was operating on little more than faith and an unswerving conviction that it could fill a niche CNN and the big three networks either could not or would not satisfy. We know the rest of the story. Since its relatively modest premiere, Fox has become a true force. By most ratings measures, in fact, Murdoch's network has surpassed Turner's CNN. Ofcourse, this would all make for an inspiring Cinderella story if the character living happily ever after wasn't the ugly stepsister. Fox presents itself, without perceptible irony, as a trusted news source. Its familiar slogans "Fair and Balanced" and "We Report, You Decide" suggest an informed, skeptical viewership. But Fox's viewers are less informed than other news consumers, and there's some evidence that it's Fox itself that's made them that way. Fair and Balanced, My Ass! is a wide-ranging, irreverent, and humorous look at America's No. 1 cable news network. It examines Fox's phony patriotism and piety, its dishonest crusades, and its well-defined agenda- and ratings-driven techniques. The authors deliver a hearty slapdown to the jewels in the Murdoch crown, including Bill O'Reilly, John Gibson, Hannity and Colmes, Neal Cavuto, Fox & Friends. Brit Hume, et al. The result is a hilarious and bracing read.
