Fox & Friends is an American morning television show on the Fox News Channel.

History

The program starts at 6:00 a.m. Eastern Time with the latest Fox News Live headlines and analyzes the news of the morning. It continues with many different segments including interviews, updates of news stories with correspondents at any number of bureaus, analysis from the hosts, and many different regular morning show segments. Fox & Friends evolved from Fox X-press, FNC's original morning-news program.

The show also has a list of regular contributors, including Dr. Manny Alvarez with "Ask Dr. Manny" and "Dr. Manny's Healthbeat," two regular health segments, Mancow Muller with a short chat session towards the end of the weekday edition of the program, and any number of other contributors.

After the September 11, 2001, attacks, an additional hour was added to the beginning of the weekday show, but branded as a separate program called Fox & Friends First. It was the first FNC program to air live for the day, starting at 6:00 a.m. It was discontinued on July 13, 2008 and replaced with an additional hour of Fox & Friends. (Such a change, however, is only cosmetic: Both shows were produced by the same staff and cycled the same anchors, with the only difference being the graphics package.)

Criticisms of Fox & Friends

Fox & Friends has been criticized for being particularly biased for Fox News in its support of conservatives and the GOP. Host Brian Kilmeade had stated about protestors at the Republican National Convention, "When is it OK to whack them around?" [1] In particular, Fox & Friends has been criticized for several segments devoted to criticism of atheism or atheists with little or no representation of atheists during those segments. [2] [3]
