Just as press coverage of the Michael Moore film “Fahrenheit 9/11” starts to fade, another partisan project targeting conservatives was announced today, this one aimed at Fox News.
The activist group MoveOn.org has produced a documentary film called “Outfoxed” that, it claims, “exposes Fox for what it is: partisan spin, not news.” The film purportedly includes interviews with seven ex-Fox News employees “who describe how, every day, highly partisan talking points are drawn up to influence newscasts.”
The movie, directed by Robert Greenwald, will premiere at MoveOn houses parties around the country on July 18. Al Franken will weigh in on a conference call that night, as participants, the group says, “plan out how we’ll take on Fox and take back our media.”
Fox had no immediate comment.
Partners in the venture include Fairness and Accurancy in Reporting, Media Matters for America, and the Center for American Progress.
