The Fox Effect: How Roger Ailes Turned a Network into a Propaganda Machine - David Brock, Ari Rabin-Havt, This is one of those books that preaches to my personal choir. The fact that Fox News is far from "Fair and Balanced" should not surprise any intelligent person. A few years ago, Robert Greenwald's excellent documentary Outfoxed covered much of this material. Yet this book by the people at Media Matters goes a step further. They show how by 2009, Fox News developed from a "news" provider with biased reporting and questionable standards to a unabashed supporter and organizer for the Republican Party and other conservative groups. It is a good account of how Fox News developed. However, I hoped for a bit more quality in its writing. Nonetheless I still recommend it for its research and message.

Three and a half stars.

Support real news not Faux News
