How Right-Wingers Tried To Turn Thanksgiving Into A Celebration Of Free Enterprise And Rejection Of Socialism

This was not some scheme dreamed up by Fox News or Rush Limbaugh or even the Cato Institute: this particular intellectual endeavor goes all the way back to the New Deal and FDR’s “Four Freedoms” speech. (The Pilgrims, in this view, were proto-socialists mugged by reality.) – Slate

Why Newsmax Is Flopping

The network’s founders hoped to supplant Fox News, but viewership is down by half since January. Why? Says one expert, “Newsmax is just not good. … Most of their lineup is … people who couldn’t make it at Fox News. They just don’t have any talent.” – Vox

‘The British Fox News’ Is Off To A Very Messy Start

Murdoch Admits It Out Loud: Fox News Is The ‘Opposition’ To Democrats And Biden

Fox Corp. CEO Lachlan Murdoch, Rupert’s elder son, told a group of investors that Biden’s presidency would be good for Fox News (which, of course, used the slogan “Fair and Balanced” for decades): “The main beneficiary of the Trump administration from a ratings point of view was MSNBC … and that’s because they were the loyal opposition, That’s what our job is now with the Biden administration.” – NBC News

Fox News’s Response To Smartmatic’s $2.7 Billion Lawsuit: Don’t Blame Us, Blame Trump’s Lawyers (And Besides, First Amendment)

In the network’s motion to dismiss the voting company’s defamation lawsuit — which alleges that Fox News and three of its hosts knowingly spread a false conspiracy theory that Smartmatic’s tabulation software (with the help of the late Hugo Chávez) changed vote totals — Fox’s attorneys argue that any allegation, no matter how bizarre, by a President or his representatives is inherently newsworthy and the network has a protected right and duty to present it. – The Hollywood Reporter

Hachette Pushes Out The Last Of The Mainstream MAGA Publishers

Kate Hartson, a fit 67-year-old who once ran a small press specializing in dogs, had all the trappings of a liberal book editor, including an apartment on the Upper East Side and a place in Hampton Bays. But she also seemed to be that rarest of figures in New York media: a true believer in Donald J. Trump, people who worked with her said. She published “Triggered” by Donald Trump Jr., Mr. Lewandowski’s “Trump: America First: The President Succeeds Against All Odds” and the work of other Trump d...

Fox News’ Alternative Language

Political theorists, over the years, have looked for metaphors to describe the effects that Fox—particularly its widely watched opinion shows—has had on American politics and culture. They’ve talked about the network as an “information silo” and “a filter bubble” and an “echo chamber,” as an “alternate reality” constructed of “alternative facts,” as a virus on the body politic, as an organ of the state. The comparisons are all correct. But they don’t quite capture what the elegies for Fox-felle...

Fox News Tries Using First Amendment To Defend Its Now-Retracted Reporting On Seth Rich’s Murder

The Democratic National Committee staffer was shot during a mugging in the summer of 2016, but a conspiracy theory, developed in right-wing circles and repeated on Fox News, claimed that Rich was murdered because he (not Russian hackers) handed DNC emails to WikiLeaks. Rich’s parents and brother have sued, and the network has suffered serious fallout (hence the rare retraction). Fox execs are now claiming that the First Amendment means one of their reporters can’t be forced to give a deposition...

The Fox News Theory Of Art

According to the Fox News theory of art, an artwork’s primary purpose isn’t to awe, inspire, or delight, let alone challenge your understanding of the world, but to serve as an expression of partisan allegiances; that you might also get a kick out of looking at it is more of a perk. On Fox News, the suggestion that a statue of a Confederate general who fought and died for the cause of chattel slavery doesn’t belong in public makes you a censorious triggered lib trampling on the Constitut...

5 Huge Marketing Campaigns Gone Wrong (+ How To Ensure Yours Goes Right)

This article has been contributed by Tom Simpkins. Marketing campaigns are some of the best ways to get the word out about your company, a product, or even just a message. Whether you’re aiming to make your brand iconic or simply trying to make a joke out of the competition, a marketing campaign can be a powerful tool. Campaigns can go viral, become beloved, even integrate into the zeitgeist; but they can do so either in a good way or a bad way. Sometimes your marketing message can fall on deaf ...

Interview with Beeple, artist behind Zuckerberg nightmare art

You've seen Mike "Beeple" Winkelmann's work before here—Nice animation of Zuckerberg as giant cyborg spider enjoying Facebook's nipple-free techno-utopia—and now Avery White interviewed him for Vox. He "works in a room with side-by-side 65-inch TVs constantly tuned to CNN and Fox News and on computers that are suspended above a bathtub because their 12 combined graphics cards generate too much heat."

A University Course In Bullshit Detection (Because Bullshit Really Is Everywhere)

“Calling Bullshit: Data Reasoning in a Digital World” at the University of Washington “is not dedicated to teaching students that Fox News promotes ‘fake news or that National Enquirer headlines are fallacious. Instead, the class operates under the assumption that the structures through which today’s endless information comes to the consumer — algorithms, data graphics, info analytics, peer-reviewed publications — are in many ways as full of bullshit as the fake news we easily recognize as bogu...

At The End Of Its Run, An Oral History Of Twentieth Century Fox

As Fox’s film and television operations (not including Fox News and Sports, or the lot itself) prepare to go to Disney, “The Los Angeles Times spoke to dozens of actors, executives and other Fox veterans to reminisce about the studio’s 106-year legacy, its family atmosphere, its moguls, its filmmakers and the magic they made.” – Los Angeles Times

How Fox News Became The Propaganda Arm Of The Trump White House

Strange as it may seem today, there was a point at which the network was very skeptical of Donald Trump’s campaign for the presidency. Now Fox News personalities appear with Trump at political events and give him policy advice, both on and off the air. Jane Mayer does a deep dive into how the change happened, who tried to keep it at bay (Roger Ailes!), and who chose not to stop it. – The New Yorker

Fox News Rejects Ad For Oscar-Nominated Anti-Nazi Documentary, Calling It “Inappropriate”

The documentary focuses on a 1939 pro-Nazi rally in New York and warns that fascism could happen here. The movie – A Night At The Garden – is competing in the documentary category and the ad for it – a 30-second spot was called “It Can Happen Here.” Producers had wanted to buy a spot on the Sean Hannity Show. – The Hollywood Reporter

‘West Side Story’ Production At Kent State Canceled After Students Criticize Casting Of Non-Latinxs

The criticism was led by theater major Bridgett Martinez, who had auditioned for Maria but was cast as understudy for the role. “If they didn’t have this diverse cast in mind, and they didn’t think that we as the Latino students could fulfill these lead roles, then why would they continue on with the show in the first place?” So they didn’t. Once Fox News and similar outlets picked up the story, discussion of the situation spread well beyond the university.

Media Trolls Tried To Shame This TV Actor For Working At Trader Joe’s. They Got Him Acting Jobs Instead

Geoffrey Owens, who had a recurring role on The Cosby Show in the ’80s and ’90s, was photographed last month bagging groceries, a between-gigs job he took to make ends meet; the pictures ended up on Fox News and The Daily Mail Online. Owens actually got an outpouring of support (Fox and the Mail got the shaming) — and then producers, reminded of his existence, started offering him jobs. He tells Sopan Deb what’s happened since and what else he’s been doing (like teaching Shakespearean acting). ...

How to Create a Fun and Engaging Presentation

One of my biggest fears as a presenter is not being taken seriously, this fear has often caused me to shy away from humor and laughter in my presenting which has resulted in a perception that I am only a serious presenter and unable to break into the fun field. For the longest time I embraced that perception and refused to change but the more time I spent researching the impact of laughter the more I realized how vital humor is to a fun engaging presentation. According to a Pew Research Poll, th...

Word of the week: Defenestration

It’s rare that a nonce word – a word invented for a single situation, also called an occasionalism – takes root in the language and continues to thrive centuries after its original use. But that’s the case with defenestration, which was created from Latin roots meaning “out the window” and which first appeared in English in 1619, a year after the Second Defenestration of Prague, in which “a group of Protestant Bohemian protestors threw two Catholic imperial officials and their secretary out of ...

Journalists Are Beginning To Use Bots To Write The News

When Facebook fired the human editors of its Trending module last year and let an algorithm curate the news, the world soon learned (falsely) that Megyn Kelly had been fired from Fox News. “Will there be controversy when the bot thinks this is important, and humans say this is important, and they’re the exact opposite thing? It’s going to get interesting.”

Video captures vandals toppling 18-million-year-old sandstone formation in Oregon

An iconic sandstone formation on the Oregon coast known as “the duckbill” is no more, after a group of vandals forced the rocks to topple, leaving behind a devastated pile of rubble. The giant rock, known as “The Duckbill” measured up to 10 feet across, and was a sought-after destination just beyond the safety fence in Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area in Oregon’s Tillamook County. At first, park officials thought that the formation had fallen on its own, but video captured by a witness later rev...

USGS, EPA investigate link between underground wastewater disposal and Oklahoma's largest earthquake

On Saturday, a magnitude 5.6 earthquake shook north central Oklahoma, prompting the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to investigate whether the quake was caused by the oil and gas industry’s practice of underground wastewater disposal. The quake, which is reportedly the largest in the state’s history, damaged some buildings but there have been no reports of injuries or deaths. Many environmental scientists have long suspected that industrial activities like this are linked to, and can even cause, ...
