The White House will lose its war against Fox News
By Nile Gardiner World Last updated: October 21st, 2009
The White House’s extraordinary assault on the Fox News Channel will end
in tears – and not for Rupert Murdoch, Fox’s owner. The Obama
administration has embarked on a high-risk strategy of shooting the
messenger, in effect blaming its plummeting poll ratings on alleged
political bias at the number one 24-hour cable news network. As Anita
Dunn, the Mao-quoting White House communications director put it in an
interview with The New York Times:
“We’re going to treat them the way we would treat an opponent. As they
are undertaking a war against Barack Obama and the White House, we don’t
need to pretend that this is the way that legitimate news organizations
As Dunn’s statement illustrates, this is an overtly political campaign –
and one that is doomed to failure, as it will ensure that even more
Americans end up tuning in to Fox shows. The United States is a nation
built around the principles of free speech, limited government, and free
enterprise, and it is highly unusual for a US administration to launch
an authoritarian vendetta against an individual news station. It smacks
of mean-spiritedness as well as desperation, and is an approach that is
already backfiring, with Fox’s ratings receiving an added boost from the
Fox News is succeeding in America precisely because it is not afraid to
challenge the status quo, and to take on the power of big government. It
is unique in broadcast media in going against the grain of the dominant
liberal networks, NBC, CBS and ABC, by providing an alternative
perspective in a nation where conservatives are still the largest
ideological group according to Gallup. Television news in America has
for decades been dominated by a left-of-centre oligopoly that has not
reflected public opinion. That smug arrangement was shattered when Fox
opened for business in the mid-1990s.
Fox News has succeeded spectacularly in racing ahead of its rivals in
the cable news market, notably CNN and MSNBC. Its evening shows – such
as the O’Reilly Factor, Glenn Beck and Hannity – pull in several million
viewers compared to just hundreds of thousands on Fox’s competitors. Fox
offers a highly opinionated, fast-paced and entertaining brand of
political debate that includes all sides of the political aisle. The top
hosts may be largely conservative (though not necessarily Republican),
but the guests frequently are not, creating an adversarial and combative
arena that until recently was a rarity in American news coverage.
Fox also benefits from an extraordinary level of professional management
that sets the gold standard for cable news organizations. It is a
remarkably well-run operation that also projects the American dream,
with its proud emphasis on entrepreneurialism, patriotism, and a strong
sense of national identity. Fox is unashamedly pro-American, a breath of
fresh air in an age when US foreign policy is increasingly weak, muddled
The success of Fox News is not driven by any political agenda, as its
Administration critics claim. It is simply doing its job as a news
organization by questioning the positions and policies of the elected
government and officials of the United States, whoever is in the White
House. That is the proper role of the media in a free society, and any
attempt by the government to muzzle Fox is a threat to the freedom of
all American news outlets, including liberal juggernauts such as The New
York Times, NBC and CNN
Bueno, este articulo presenta a FOX News como algo importante y
luchador por las libertades de su pais; la realidad es que FOX no
tiene esa estatura.
FOX es de extrema derecha estilo el KuKluxKan y sus comentaristas como
Lou Dobbs, Rush Limbaugh, Glen Something y otros se distinguen por su
capacidad de vociferar falsedades y repetirlas hasta que la poblacion
autista las adopta como verdades y hace caso de los temores que esta
cadena noticiosa, FOX, les inculca contra los "liberales"; asi los
autistas viven en estado de panico latente orando porque los
"liberales" no les hagan mal. La realidad es que quienes les hacen mal
son los ultraconservadores que los manejan como rebaño y les sacan la
plata que reciben de su trabajo o sus inversiones; al cabo que si algo
sale mal siempre sera culpa de los 'liberales'.
Los comentaristas de Fox son escogidos no por su inteligencia y saber,
sino porque son rubitas de tipo misa dominical y varoncillos de cara
infantil que tienen como obligacion sonreir continuamente y demostrar
que son "nice" y adorables.
