My team is really good at news. They are really good at programming. For me one of the best things we can do is raise the wall between news and programming even higher. We need that wall high. We serve different functions.
Fox News host Shepard Smith • Discussing his new role with the network, which will have him host a daily 3 p.m. newscast and then break in throughout the day with any breaking news that arises. Beyond adding more separation between news and opinion like Smith is suggesting above, this would help solve the problem Fox is currently having with its programming (no, not that one; nor that one; not that one, either; really, anything on this site)—the fact that Sean Hannity is about to lose his time slot to Megyn Kelly. See, Smith (who has a better rep than most of his co-workers) has long held down the 7 p.m. slot—now he’s going to get pushed back.

The business model of Fox Nation — of all of Fox News, really — is to encourage this sort of paranoid ignorance. The business model is to make people crazy and stupid, because it builds viewer loyalty and fuels outrage toward the Democratic Party.

No More Mister Nice Blog (via azspot)

it’s worth noting that Fox News as a journalistic entity does employ countless professional, first-rate journalists and reporters. That can get too easily get lost in the bombastic partisanship and presentation of its cable news side. Fox Nation, on the other hand… we’re not quite sure which adjective to use, so we’ll just remind everyone of this old classic.

Fair and Balanced: Here’s a handwritten note, circa-2005, wherein the president of Fox News writes to a Bush administration official—on Fox News stationary—and offers to “help off the record” if needed. The administration official in question was Condoleezza Rice, then-Secretary of State; Rice replied with a generic form letter. The note was obtained by Gawker’s John Cook, who wrote: "Please just imagine for a moment how Fox News would cover the publication of a private note from the editor of the New York Times to an Obama Administration official offering ‘help off the record.’" source

In case you needed a reminder that the entertainment department of 20th Century Fox gets zero influence from the news department, this R-rated Mitt Romney music video, which features profanity, a parody of an Ol’ Dirty Bastard classic, Big Bird getting shot, an implication that Sean Hannity is gay, and a lot of sexual innuendo. It appears designed to offend your dainty sensibilities. (NSFW video)

Supreme Court sides with ABC and Fox, rejects FCC indecency fines 
A win for the entertainment industry: The fines were a result of three separate incidents, spread across multiple years and two broadcast networks. The Court tossed three fines from two separate networks on Thursday, in a narrow decision which could have had wide implications for the entertainment industry, but probably won’t due to the way it was decided. Here are the indecency fines the networks were fighting against:
ABC The network and several of its local affiliates faced fines from the FCC totaling $1.4 million, thanks to a 2003 episode of popular, edgy-for-its-time cop drama “NYPD Blue”, which included a 7-second shot of actress Charlotte Ross’ naked buttocks. None for Dennis Franz?
FOX During an acceptance speech at the 2002 Billboard Music Awards, Cher dropped an F-bomb while discussing her critics. One year later, reality TV star Nicole Richie used the same word while describing the difficulty of cleaning dog feces out of a bag. source
» But wait a second: Before you start celebrating the new era of guns and porn during prime-time television, know that the Supreme Court has not stripped the FCC of its ability to regulate broadcasters. In fact, they vacated a lower court’s decision to rule the so-called “indecency rule” unconstitutional; however, the justices did not believe that the organization provided “fair warning” to Fox and ABC that their respective broadcasts could result in fines. (Photo via Bloomberg)

If we’re going to spend all this money on content it has to be measured and monetized.
NBC Broadcast Chairman Ted Harbert • Expressing his displeasure with Dish Network’s newly announced Hopper DVR, which includes an “Auto-Hop” commercial-skipping feature, during a presentation at Radio City Music Hall on Monday.  (The player has been available since March.) Harbert also declined to comment on whether or not NBC’s legal department was evaluating the company’s the legal options. Fox entertainment chairman Peter Rice was skeptical as well, telling reporters he thought releasing such a device was a “strange thing to do,” but said his company absolutely was not looking into legal action at this time.  source (viafollow)
