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.

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.

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.

Greenwald presents a picture of a man [Rupert Murdoch) possessed with a right wing agenda and a flair for sensationalism. This was the man who once had his NY Post run a headline that said, "Terror from the Sky." No, it wasn't about 9/11. Back then it was about an air conditioner that fell from a ninth floor window.

Some of the people interviewed for this video were former Fox employees. Some may have an agenda, but some may be revealing the truth about Fox's penchant for slanting the news to favor conservative views. As one of the interviewees charged, the liberal counterpoints they generally have on the air, were nobodies. Alan Combes, the supposed counterweight to Sean Hannity is like pitting the Washington Generals against the Harlem Globetrotters. (Guess who wins!) The video correctly intimates Hannity lacks the cohonas and wits to take on Michael Moore, Joe Conason, or an Al Frankel. (Hmmmm. Why did Hannity cancel that debate in Colorado with Michael Moore, anyway?) From what I have seen on Fox, the liberal counterpoints are no one I recognize.

Greenwald cleverly creates clip after clip of Fox editorializing guests and news with comments like,"Some people say he's trying to sell a book." Implication? Richard Clarke, who is particularly unkind to the Bush administration in his book "Against All Enemies," was sacrificing truth for profit. Of course, Fox never got more specific about who the "some people say" were.

Bill O'Reilly is also grist for Greenwald's mill demonstrating for anyone to see that Bill will say something on the air, and then deny it with pathological amnesia. His signature example was telling a viewer that he only told one person to shut up on the air.
