Monday, July 12, 2004 - Film accuses Fox of slanting the news - Film accuses Fox of slanting the news: "Outfoxed, which is being promoted by the liberal advocacy group MoveOn, charges that Fox News executives order their cable TV anchors, reporters and producers to slant the news to be pro-Republican and pro-Bush administration.
Fox News, which says it is the 'fair and balanced' network, has long been accused by Democrats and liberals of having a conservative bias. Outfoxed adds to that debate through interviews with former Fox correspondents and producers, as well as memos written by Fox executives.
The memos, for example, portray Fox executives urging correspondents to remind viewers the United States 'is in Iraq to help a country brutalized for 30 years protect the gains made by Operation Iraqi Freedom' - an argument for the war that is similar to the Bush administration's. "
