Fox News is Not News…The Federal Communications Commission should label Fox as “Commentary”

* This is an example of advocacy and not journalism by Jenna Lee of Fox News, the Propaganda Channel.

EXCERPT from Media Matters for America is underlined below:

Fox “Straight News” Anchor Jenna Lee: “Raising Taxes” Is Where “We’re Not Gonna Budge Here, On The Republican Side”

* Reminder: Jenna Lee is not an elected official. She is supposed to be a reporter giving the fact & evidence to the public. However, here she addresses the Republican side. That is the opposite of journalistic integrity if Jenna Lee is supposed to be delivering straight news. In this example she acts like a Bill O’Reilly-type, opinionated commentator…with a prettier face and softer voice. But the message is still right-wing propaganda.

“Gwen Ifill of the PBS NewsHour and Washington Week explained how she handles bias: ‘I hope you never know what I think. I’m there to provide you the information so you can decide. I have to keep open the pos­sibility that the other guy has a point.… I have to be an honest broker.’”
