SummaryAdd a Summary
Outfoxed attempts to demonstrate the extreme right-wing bias of Fox News Channel's claim of "Fair and Balanced" journalism. Using mostly former Fox staff and media analysts, this movie is made up mostly of interviews. A large amount of actual Fox News material is edited and presented to illustrate the message of this documentary. The story arc is told beginning with Rupert Murdoch's purchase of the station and the subsequent agenda foisted upon the channel's reporters and presenters. Daily memos were distributed detailing what was and was not to be addressed on the various news shows. Events like a Ronald Reagan birthday celebration and the Bush vs. Gore election become stark examples of Rupert Murdoch's agenda of how news media and politics should intersect.
