News Corp. uses Big Story to hype 20th Century Fox movie

Reported by Chrish - November 16, 2005

John Gibson interviewed the director (James Mangold) of the new "biopic" movie about Johnny Cash, "Walk the Line", on The Big Story today 11/16/05. During the movie clip prior to the interview, 20th Century Fox appeared in the chyron for about 6 seconds. The chyron read preview of "Walk the Line" Johnny Cash Biopic for the remaining 2m40s of the piece, and no relationship between the two businesses was mentioned. Gibson was very approving of the movie and recommended people go see it.

I'd like to see the accounting entries for that! Just another example of News Corp. cross-promotion and self-serving hegemony.
