It’s Hard to Get Excited About Old News, That Is, That Fox News Is a Scribe of the Republican Party

New York Daily News headline: White House: Fox News ‘a wing of the Republican Party’. Why is the New York Daily News so excited about the Obama administration’s dated communique about Fox? Don’t the editors/reporters there keep an eye on Robert Greenwald and Media Matters for America?

In Director/Producer Robert Greenwald’s 2004 Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch’s War on Journalism, Fox News is described and portrayed in a number of ways as a factotum of the Republican Party (essentially writing press releases for the GOP): “As little more than a mouthpiece for the Republican Party” – quote by ex-Fox News employee Charlie Reina. As a PR machine/extension of the GOP, said in another part of the documentary.

WORD blog, April 11, 2008, also addressed this theme via a report by Media Matters for America.
