Faux News (Fox News nickname)

The Fox News Channel (headquartered in Manhattan) has often been criticized for conservative bias. The nickname “Faux News” has been used by some critics of Fox News since at least March 2001.

Other Fox News nicknames include “Fux News” (since July 2001), “Fox Spews"/"Faux Spews” (since November 2001), “Foxaganda” (since October 2003), “Fox Noise"/"Faux Noise” (since August 2004), “Fake News” (since September 2004), “Fixed News” (since October 2004), “Fox Comedy” (since December 2005), “Full Of Xenophobia” (since March 2007), “Fixed Noise” (since August 2007) and “FoxPAC” (since September 2009).

The more liberal MSNBC network has been nicknamed “PMSNBC” (since July 1996), “MSNBS” (since October 1996), “MessNBC” (since March 2002), “MSDNC” (since May 2005), “MSLSD” (since September 2005), “MSLGBT” (since October 2008), “Moonbats Spouting Nothing But Crap” (since January 2010) and “MSNBC-Pravda” (since August 2010).


Wikipedia: Fox News Channel
Fox News Channel (FNC), commonly referred to as Fox or Fox News, is a cable and satellite news channel owned by the Fox Entertainment Group, a subsidiary of News Corporation. As of April 2009, it is available to 102 million households in the United States and further to viewers internationally, broadcasting primarily out of its New York City studios.

The channel was created by Australian-American media mogul Rupert Murdoch, who hired Roger Ailes as its founding CEO. The channel was launched on October 7, 1996 to 17 million cable subscribers. The network slowly rose to prominence in the late 1990s. In terms of regular viewers (Nielsen ratings), Fox News rates as the United States’ most watched cable news network, ahead of CNN and MSNBC.

Many observers have asserted that both Fox’s news reporting and its political commentary promote conservative political positions. Fox News Channel denies any bias in its news reporting and maintains that its political commentary and news reporting operate independently of each other.

Accusations of conservative bias
Many critics and politicians have accused FNC of having a bias towards the political right at the expense of neutrality. Murdoch and Ailes have reacted against allegations of bias, with Murdoch saying that Fox has “given room to both sides, whereas only one side had it before.” In 2004, director Robert Greenwald produced the documentary film Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch’s War on Journalism, which argues that Fox News has a conservative bias, including as evidence internal memos from editorial Vice President John Moody which the film uses to demonstrate Fox’s attempts to alter news content.

A Pew Research poll, released on October 29, 2009, found that Fox News is viewed as the most ideological network in America. The poll, which featured Americans view of various news networks by ideology, scored Fox News the highest of any category with (47%) as “mostly conservative,” (14%) as “mostly liberal,” and (24%) as “neither."[48] In comparison, MSNBC had (36%) identify it as “mostly liberal,” (11%) as “mostly conservative,” and (27%) as “neither.” CNN had (37%) describe it as “mostly liberal,” (11%) as “mostly conservative,” and (33%) as “neither.”
