5 facts about Fox News
By Jesse Holcomb
Pew Research Center

Fox News was very tough on the last Democratic candidate for president. (But MSNBC was even tougher on the Republican).

The Fox News audience skews more ideological than that of its two main competitors.

Fox News is expensive.

Fox still leads in audience, but that audience is smaller than it used to be.

Fox outspends its rivals.

Fourteen Propaganda Techniques FoxNews” Uses to Brainwash Americans
Saturday, 02 July 2011 04:17
By Dr Cynthia Boaz,
Truthout
News Analysis

Panic Mongering.
Character Assassination/Ad Hominem.
Projection/Flipping
Rewriting History.
Scapegoating/Othering
Conflating Violence With Power and Opposition to Violence With Weakness.
Bullying.
Confusion.
Populism.
Invoking the Christian God.
Disparaging Education.
Guilt by Association.

” In considering these tactics and their possible effects on American public discourse, it is important to note that historically, those who’ve genuinely accessed truth have never berated those who did not. You don’t get honored by history when you beat up your opponent: look at Martin Luther King Jr., Robert Kennedy, Abraham Lincoln. These men did not find the need to engage in othering, ad homeinum attacks, guilt by association or bullying. This is because when a person has accessed a truth, they are not threatened by the opposing views of others. This reality reveals the righteous indignation of people like Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity as a symptom of untruth. These individuals are hostile and angry precisely because they don’t feel confident in their own veracity. And in general, the more someone is losing their temper in a debate and the more intolerant they are of listening to others, the more you can be certain they do not know what they’re talking about.

One final observation. Fox audiences, birthers and Tea Partiers often defend their arguments by pointing to the fact that a lot of people share the same perceptions. This is a reasonable point to the extent that Murdoch’s News Corporation reaches a far larger audience than any other single media outlet. But, the fact that a lot of people believe something is not necessarily a sign that it’s true; it’s just a sign that it’s been effectively marketed.”
