ITV4 at 11:20pm on Boxing day.



I've seen this film before, it's a good insight into the running of Fox News.

Hiya Johnnie - yes, I saw Outfoxed on More4 recently. Very interesting as I do not see Fox news - only the reports you hear about its right-wing biased coverage.





My criticism of this and similar programs - e.g. The Corporation, Supersize Me, etc., is their one-sided uncritical nature - and the extremes they go to to make their point. Often over-egging the pudding.





I would prefer it if they would offer both sides of the argument to let the viewer make-up their mind.





But then they wouldn't be so hard-hitting, controversial or watchable... They are often as biased one-way as they accuse their targets of being the other way!





Cheers, Phae.
