The Only True Way to Save Marriage From Obama

Across America—and particularly in the red states that have rejected gay marriage—divorce rates are continually rising, along with teen pregnancies, out-of-wedlock births and single motherhood (which somehow afflict gay-friendly blue states far less).

Official Murdoch Denouncement Makes Waves on American Shores

The declaration by British MPs on Tuesday that Rupert Murdoch exercised “willfull blindness” about phone hacking at The News of the World and is “not a fit person” to run a major international company has prompted the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington to ask the FCC to revoke the 27 Fox broadcast licenses that News Corp. holds in the U.S.

A History of Rupert Murdoch

This brief history of Rupert Murdoch by Bruce Page, author of the book “The Murdoch Archipelago,” originally ran in 2009 as a straightforward antidote to Michael Wolff’s “sycophantic” (in Page’s view) 2008 book on the international media mogul, “The Man Who Owns the News.” Pictured above, Rupert’s father, Sir Keith Murdoch.

Fox News to Drop Glenn Beck’s Show

Although Glenn Beck himself is characterizing the change as a “new phase” of his “partnership” with Roger Ailes’ conservative-magnet cable channel, the bottom line of this story is that Beck’s show will be phased out of the Fox News programming lineup later this year.

Is Glenn Beck Not Long for Fox News?

While we are generally loath to give Fox News’ chalkboard jockey Glenn Beck our attention, the rumor that he could be taking his act off Fox News and on to other right-wing media outlets of undetermined nature—and as early as the politically conspicuous ...

Major Garrett: Fox Polarizes on Purpose

In case this wasn’t already clear, here we have evidence, straight from the mouth of former Fox News fixture Major Garrett, that his ex-network deliberately plays a game of division by packaging its news for a select audience.

Glenn Beck Brings the Drama to Fox News

Glenn Beck has certainly drawn bigger audience numbers with his unique, and often baffling, brand of showmanship since he switched from CNN to Fox News in early 2009.

Jon Stewart and Bill O’Reilly Attempt to Define Fox News

In these clips from Wednesday’s “The O’Reilly Factor” featuring a cameo by Jon Stewart, Bill O’Reilly and his guest disagree on a few things. This is to be expected.

Paul Krugman Explains to Roger Ailes Why Fox News Is Garbage

It’s all well and good to snipe at the opposition from Microsoft Word, quite another to tell the guy sitting next to you that he’s a propagandist. Kudos to Paul Krugman for bringing a little more fact-checking and a little less elbow-rubbing to the Sunday morning talk show circuit.

We may not have seen the last of him on TV, but Lou Dobbs is done at CNN, having struck a deal to leave his anchor post at the cable channel immediately.

Fox News Debate Implodes

Liberal bloggers had gone crazy when they heard the Nevada Democratic Party had agreed to co-sponsor a debate with Fox News. On Friday the event was canceled after a series of developments. Barack Obama was freezing out Fox reporters, John Edwards and Bill Richardson announced they wouldn’t participate in the debate and, finally, Fox President Roger Ailes (above) brought the whole thing crashing down with a botched bad joke.
