Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Fox Nation is a conservative news website operated by the Fox News Channel that began operation on March 30, 2009.

According to Fox News, "Fox Nation will be a forum for Americans to speak out on important and controversial issues, and to act on their beliefs and values — while always upholding the traditional American ideals of free speech, fair play, and tolerance."[1]

The site features news articles, video clips, and links to editorial blogs by noted conservative political commentators like Bill Kristol and Charles Krauthammer, as well as some liberal political commentators, like Susan Estrich. In keeping with the site's purpose, viewers are invited to post comments about the various topics featured on The Fox Nation, which Fox News described as "a new community where all Americans are encouraged to share, discuss, and debate."[1]

Criticism

The Fox Nation has been criticized for posting information that promotes a conservative viewpoint.[2] According to the progressive research website Mediamatters.org, "The Fox Nation has displayed an uncanny ability to mislead readers, twist the truth, spread wild conspiracy theories, and misrepresent the reporting of legitimate journalists and media outlets."[3] Likewise, the liberal website Huffington Post has stated, "[O]ne of the main functions of the political content at the site appears to be crafting inflammatory and widely misleading headlines for links to articles by news organizations whose content contradicts the Fox headline."[4]
