Muckraking look at Fox News' political chicanery.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this film contains no obscenity or violence, but it does depict some rude and coarse behavior on the part of journalists and other public figures.

  • Families can talk about how important an independent, skeptical press is in a democracy like ours. What's wrong with mixing opinion and fact in the news? Besides favoring one political party over another, how else does bad reporting harm the public? Can a news organization be liberal or conservative without being biased? Is Outfoxed "good" journalism itself, or is also motivated by partisan politics?
