Long, long ago I saw the "Outfoxed" DVD. No, it didn't stock up on that many surprises, just put 'em in context, and gave me some specifics as to why I don't trust anything Faux as far as I can puke it. Interesting, though, I loaned it to various colleagues who didn't know Faux was that bad; they swore off anything Faux after seeing it!
I got this book then, hoping it would complement the film. Actually, I think it does. My particular nemisis is bill o'lielly (who threatens Jeremy Glick, the young son of a 9/11 victim in the film, according to Glick, so that Glick was frightened. "He's a big man!" [6.4"] Glick proclaims.
And telling everyone to "Shut up!" while denying that he says that.
Then there's the brief clip of Al Franken saying that attorneys said that it would be hard to sue o'lielly as Billy Boy is so oblivious to his fallacies that he might not even know he's lying!
Well, I mention that as there's a long section on Billy Boy, including a segment which asserts that billy's days are numbered. It's only a matter of time before someone more audacious--a bigger liar?--comes around to put billy to shame. That, by the way, is while the author(s) comment on billy's intelligence, his style of putting his panelists on the defensive with an offensive style only billy has mastered so far.
Well, I shouldn't get caught up in billy. He's hot worth it. There's also sections focusing on Hannity and Colmes, Ann Coulter, Faux's guests, why they choose them, how they support the channel's ideological angle, etc.
Contrary to one reviewer, I think the book will stand on its own. But you might be better off seeing it as a supplement or complement to the DVD. It surely the DVD and the book indicate why integrity is needed in choosing media. (Note I don't suggest censorship. But I've argued for years that people should refuse to show up on the Faux propaganda machine, and its doors will close. Then let it's "correspondents," some of whom I've had the displeasure of meeting, may have to get a job in fast food. "Would you like fries and my last DVD with that order?" And then "journalism" may actually evolve to something resembling reality, not just a channel for the reactionaries and sheep who take Faux seriously.
