Roger Ailes & a Fox News Fake Out

Reported by Melanie - April 23, 2005

On April 23, 2005 (10:00 p.m. ET), the Fox News program, "At Large w/Geraldo Rivera," opened with the dramatic sounds and alarming graphics of a FOX NEWS ALERT (Fox's way of introducing "breaking news"). The alert was about minority students at Trinity International University in Illinois who were removed from campus after receiving death threats.

Comment: On April 7, 2005, Marvin Kalb interviewed Roger Ailes, the chairman and CEO of Fox News. During that interview, Ailes said Fox News thinks its viewers are "smart." Really? Then why did Fox use a FOX NEWS ALERT to report a story that broke two days ago?
