Criticisms[change | change source]

There was a documentary called Outfoxed that criticized the channel because they say it is biased towards conservatives and the US Republican Party in its reporting.[2] Fox says its opinion shows are biased but its regular news programs are not. President Obama through a spokesperson accused Fox News Network of working for the Republican Party. [3] Roger Ailes has called Fox News "the balance" against the liberal networks news groups such as ABC News, NBC News, CBS News, Cable News Network, and MSNBC, and seems to now promote his network as a conservative network.
