If you're one of the millions of rightwing viewers fooled by the Fox "News" tag line that they're "Fair and Balanced".... If you're one of the millions who fall into the cult of Fox that THEY are the only ones who tell you the truth and everyone else is just part of the biased "liberal" media .... well you're in for a rude awakening.

Mark Howard has done a masterful job documenting the shamelessly misleading headlines and many of the outright lies that Fox Nation, the internet arm of Fox "News", pushes out every single day. It isn't just that they manipulate the news, they literally make it up. Throughout the book, taken from posts from the website News Corpse (The Internet Chronicle of Media Decay), example after example demonstrate that whenever you see a headline on Fox Nation, you can assume it isn't true. Most of the book deals with distortions of President Obama's speeches and record. But, as a Massachusetts resident, another case jumped out at me. In the Massachusetts Senate election of 2012, democrat Elizabeth Warren, running against GOP and Tea Party darling Scott Brown, stated "We've got bridges and roads in need of repair, and thousands of people in need of work. Why aren't we rebuilding America? Our competitors are putting people to work, building the future. China invests 9 percent of its GDP in infrastructure. America, we're at just 2.4 percent. We can do better. We can build a foundation for a strong new economy and get people in Massachusetts to work right now." How did Fox Nation headline that statement? ELIZABETH WARREN PRAISES COMMUNIST CHINA.

Read it people. Not only is the book very informative and a bargain at that price, but think of all the talking points you'll have next time you argue with your crazy rightwing uncle.

Book was objective and simply verified what I had already surmised. As an Independent Conservative, I have beeen totally abashed at the half truths of the Neo-Con faction of the Republican Party. Conservatives don't need to lie about their agenda, just tell the truth. FOX has lost it. True Goldwater/Reagan Conservatives no longer have a TV outlet for their message.

This book is less a narrative than simply a collection of 'news releases' by the Fox News empire, particularly through their website Fox Nation, followed by documentation from less biased sources (often primary sources) that expose the releases as either biased distortions of the truth or even outright lies. The point of this book is well made: don't trust anything you read on the internet, or anything anyone says, unless you check it out yourself using multiple sources.

Mark Howard's book, _Fox Nation Vs. Reality_, raises many questions concerning the readers, editors, politicians, and others who belong to the so-called "Fox Nation" community. Individual chapters point out the frequency with which anonymous users resort to racial epithets, threats against the president, and other base rhetoric in Fox News' aggregate site comments. More importantly is the deliberate agenda of Fox Nation editors (also as Mark points out remain anonymous) to skew, create, and/or reverse the content of the stories to appeal to this base demographic. Unlike other analyses of right wing media, (Media Matters' The Fox Effect, for example) Mark pulls no punches in his analysis and theses. Not only is Mark's book important in understanding the fringe base to which Fox Nation directs its stories, but it is also important in understanding the right wing media machine of Fox News and its seedy underbelly. As an e-book, the volume contains useful links to Mark's original blog entries and other relevant sites. One hopes that in a subsequent volume, Mark can illuminate and highlight some other patterns during President Obama's second term.

In previous books, where I've read material on subjects such as global warming and the Tea Party, Fox News kept popping up as a purveyor of misinformation. When I saw this book, I decided to read it to get more insight into the nature of this news outlet.

Howard notes that Fox New debuted about sixteen years ago, and it was "crafted from scratch to be a partisan outlet for right-wing propaganda and a platform for advancing a conservative agenda." He notes that the web site Fox Nation compliments their television presence. What I found interesting was that this news enterprise does not identify their principle staff such as publishers and editors according to Howard. He states, "There is no masthead or bylines or any other indication of who is responsible for the repugnant content posted daily on the web page." In this book, he tries to show how the "blatant falsehoods" are aimed at an ill-informed audience - one which simply wants to have their prejudices affirmed. With their propaganda, they fabricate an "alternative political reality." They are definitely anti-Obama as Howard speaks of "their desperate determination to see everything Obama does as either evil, incompetent, uncaring, or un-American." They appear to be on a mission to disparage the President, and this becomes evident as you read the articles presented here.

He backs up these claims with a collection of articles here - I counted fifty-five - that seem to clearly demonstrate what he says. You can check the list of articles by using Amazon's "Look Inside" feature. Then read the book. It backs up the suspicions I've developed from watching the news outlet.
