Though politically one-sided and at times resembling a corporate training video, Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism (2004) is a highly effective Op-Ed style activist documentary, it's certain to make the blood of both liberals and conservatives boil, if for different reasons.
Financed by MoveOn.org and the Center for American Progress, and directed by Robert Greenwald, this direct-to-video feature traces the rise of Rupert Murdoch's media empire, which now includes nine television satellite networks, 100 cable channels, 175 newspapers, 40 book imprints, and 40 TV stations reaching three-fourths of the world's population, some 4.7 billion people. When Murdoch launched Fox News in 1996 as a rival to CNN, its CEO and Chairman, Roger Ailes said, "We'd like to be premier journalists and restore objectivity." Which is like a tobacco company spokesman insisting cigarette smoking doesn't cause cancer. (Stuart Galbraith IV, Amarican cinema historian and film critic)
