Propaganda & Mass Persuasion: The FOX News Memo!

The FOX News Memo!

An article written by Charlie Reina, a former writer and producer for FOX tells the readers how bias FOX News really is. Chris Wallace, one of FOX's highest paid anchors tells us that FOX News is fair and balanced, but the lower employees of FOX who don't make the big bucks tells us a completely different story.

Reina has worked for many different companies including the associate Press and CBS and he was never told or "asked" to write or produce a show a certain way. This changed when he started to work for FOX. Reina says he was pressured by management to produce a show a certain way. The bias of FNC's is clear in the day-to-day operations. Each morning an eletronic "memo" is sent out to all members of the news room addressing what stories will be covered, and which stories would not. The anchor began with the Bush administration's and continues today. Present day memos are mostly concerned with the war in Iraq. The memo says what stories will be covered and the tone of the story.

In the end, the FOX News Channel is an extremely bias network. The anchors and journalist do not give there own spin on a story, they simplely report on and how the management wants them to. Therefore, you will never get the complete truth from FNC and is not a good source for honest news.

Yes there is pressure at FNC, that has been documented but there are a lot of journalists working there who do try to report the news objectively. The big names are often irritating but FNC is an important conservative version of reality that cannnot be ignored if only because so many conservative Americans base their view of the world on FOX and nothing else. FOX certainly needs to be criticized but it cannot be ignored.
