6/16/2011: New 'Fox News' Category
After some discussion, we added a new category to the Domestic Propaganda project: Fox News. We did not add this category for ideological reasons, but because we believe the facts show that Fox News engages in systematic propaganda operations for its own ideological and political reasons. Certainly other news providers such as CNN, MSNBC, and the broadcast providers have engaged in individual instances of propaganda over the last decades, but after long and careful review, we have concluded that Fox News is carrying out a systematic program of intentional propaganda, directed by its president, Roger Ailes. We intend to continue to document Fox News’s propaganda efforts. If you care to contribute to that effort, or if you have reliable information that casts a different light on the subject, you are invited to become a contributor and add your work to the compilation of information.
