Outfoxed - Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism
From producer/director Robert Greenwald and the upstanding crew at Disinformation comes Outfoxed, a scathing exposé on Rupert Murdoch's media empire and how his Fox News station has successfully crossed over from actual news to a full-fledged propaganda machine. The DVD includes the 77-minute film, plus a half-hour behind-the-scenes documentary that goes in depth on all aspects of the production, featuring interviews with the editors, producers, and graphic artists all the way to the fateful people whose job it was to monitor the network for an extended period. Also included is a trailer for another Greenwald production, Uncovered: The Whole Truth About the Iraq War, the first in a trilogy of activist films that includes Unprecedented: The 2000 Presidential Elections and Unconstitutional: Civil Liberties After 9/11. One downside of the disc is the exclusion of any scene selections, though that is a minor complaint and shouldn't affect viewers upon their first viewing.
