Amateurish and uninteresting in its choir-preaching approach, this basically reprimands Fox News for being right-leaning, and sees Rupert Murdoch as an evil conservative William Randolph Hearst figure. What it doesn't tell you is that Murdoch is only interested in money, not an agenda. If Fox News made money doing what MSNBC does, he'd use that approach. Compare the ratings and it speaks for itself.
The film leans on the idea that fox is contradictory and full of shit for too long. It's understood as soon as O'reilly and Hannity open their mouths. Other issues could have been elaborated, such as the "fox effect."
