About the Director

Robert Greenwald is the leading director of issue oriented documentary films, including Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price, Uncovered: The Whole Truth About The Iraq War, The Real McCain, and Iraq For Sale: The War Profiteers.

Product Description

The genre-busting documentary hit that started the flood of issue-oriented documentaries is back, just in time for another crazed season of political news coverage in the build up to the 2008 presidential election. The original film is just as relevant and necessary today as it was in 2004, supplemented by over an hour of additional material, including the infamous Fox Attacks, a series of 18 short videos that continues the work started in Outfoxed, highlighting examples of Fox's biased, dishonest journalism. The videos were created to support campaigns, petitions, and legislation.


Each Fox Attacks short is supplemented by illuminating commentary exclusive to this DVD from Robert Greenwald and the producers of the films.


Outfoxed examines how media empires, led by Rupert Murdoch's Fox News, have been running a race to the bottom in television news. This film provides an in-depth look at Fox News and the dangers of ever-enlarging corporations taking control of the public's right to know.

5.0 out of 5 stars FoXNews Lies Again July 20, 2004
Format:DVD
David Cole

Iinnocuously enough. On Monday, June 21, a producer from Fox News's The O'Reilly Factor called to ask me to appear as a guest that evening to comment on a front-page story in the New York Times claiming that the Bush Administration had overstated the value of intelligence gained at Guant?namo and the dangers posed by the men detained there. I'm generally not a fan of shout-television, and I had declined several prior invitations to appear on O'Reilly's show, but this time I said yes. Little did I know it would not only be my first time, but also my last.

I sat in the Washington studio as the taping of the show began in New York with a rant from Bill O'Reilly. He claimed that "the Factor" had established the link between Al Qaeda and Saddam Hussein, and then played a clip from Thomas Kean, head of the Senate's 9/11 Commission, in which Kean said, "There is no evidence that we can find whatsoever that Iraq or Saddam Hussein participated in any way in attacks on the United States, in other words, on 9/11. What we do say, however, is there were contacts between Iraq and Saddam Hussein. Iraq, Saddam--excuse me. Al Qaeda."

I was impressed. O'Reilly, who had announced his show as the "No Spin Zone," was actually playing a balanced soundbite, one that accurately reported the commission's findings both that there was no evidence linking Saddam and 9/11, and that there was some evidence of contacts (if no "collaborative relationship") between Saddam and Al Qaeda. Maybe all those nasty things Al Franken had said about O'Reilly weren't true after all.

But suddenly O'Reilly interrupted, plainly angry, and said, "We can't use that.... We need to redo the whole thing.

4.0 out of 5 stars The television is mightier than the sword July 30, 2004
Format:DVD
First, an admission. The Fox News phenomenon is rather new to me. I haven't watched TV news in years, preferring to sift through the newspaper or the best I could find online from sources like Reuters and Associated Press. For me, the reason, outside of the annoying increase in commercials, was the endless parade of, "woe is me because the government ain't taking care of me" stories. Outside of headlines of the day, practically every "focus" story on the major networks had a definite left-wing bent. I couldn't stand the overriding feeling that I constantly was being told how I should think, or more accurately, that I shouldn't think at all. So I tuned out - and missed Fox's rise to fame or, I suppose I should say, notoriety.

How surprised was I to skim through the channels and discover this upstart news channel that wasn't, well, boring! Flashy graphics, hot news babes and, best of all, people who weren't afraid to mix it up with their guests. No more pandering and slobbering on the mic (Larry King) to get a guest. If you started mouthing off, getting off track, or just being an idiot in general, they would flat-out tell you to shut up (O'Reilly). Sure, there was a definite right-wing slant, you'd have to be a moron not to realize that. Some are so far right they may have fallen off (Hannity). I didn't care. I was hooked! Then, slowly, after a couple of months of viewing, I started realizing something.

Those on the right never, ever, lose.

This was already in the back of my mind, but it never became clearer than at Fox's recent coverage of the Democratic Convention.

3.0 out of 5 stars The News about the News July 27, 2004
Format:DVD
Even though I'm an ardent hater of Fox News Channel, Outfoxed could have been much better for several reasons. First, there were obvious examples of Fox's conservative bias that the program missed (the way the studio audiences for Linda Vester's Day Side always deride liberals and applaud conservatives, the way every email comment put up before the commercial breaks on The Big Story with John Gibson always slam liberals and the way Hannity and Colmes always opens with Newt Gingrich, William Bennett or Ann Coulter, when they never have guests on like, say, Noam Chomsky or Michael Moore).

Second, by having only liberal critics of Fox News Channel interviewed for the documentary, the documentary unwittingly gives credence to the conservative dictum that the mainstream media has a liberal bias (I put mainstream in quotes because more people watch Fox News Channel now than CNN or MSNBC combined -- therefore who is the real media elite now?). For instance, if director Robert Greenwald could have secured interviews with conservatives like William F. Buckley, Pat Buchanan, Matt Drudge or even William Kristol (who, because he is on the FNC payroll probably couldn't be asked), their views might have given this film more depth.

Third, a consideration of how other news outlets operates is necessary to show just how different Fox News Channel is from CNN, MSNBC, PBS or the Network News on ABC, CBS or NBC. If, as certain people suggest, CNN is the Clinton News Network, how is their practicing of journalism any different from Fox's? The documentary makes too many assumptions about what constitutes objective journalism. It ends up sounding like liberal journalism (I mean, this documentary is funded by moveon.org).
