Fox News: Much Mayhem Ahead

7 Jul

This article in today’s New York Times details how Roger Ailes and FNC’s PR machine operates.

At Fox News, media relations is a kind of rolling opposition research operation intended to keep reporters in line by feeding and sometimes maiming them. Shooting the occasional messenger is baked right into the process.

While it’s certainly hardball, the only thing I can say is that I’m thoroughly impressed by its effectiveness and the fear, hatred, and respect it engenders among other members of the media.

And this similar piece at Gawker is a nice postscript.
