Aided by controversy fanned by a New York Times magazine story, and dozens of newspaper stories since then, the new documentary “Outfoxed” hit No. 1 on amazon.com’s list of bestselling DVDs today. The film takes on alleged bias at Fox News Channel, and has been denounced by Fox while warmly embraced by liberal groups. Fox has also attacked The New York Times for quoting from internal Fox memos.
In the latest development, MoveOn.org and other groups announced this afternoon that on Monday they will deliver “legal papers” to Fox News’ studio in New York City, challenging the network’s use of the tagline “Fair and Balanced.” Chellie Pingree, president of Common Cause, will lead a news conference disclosing two legal actions in this matter.
