The New York Times takes a look at the rise in popularity of FOX News. The cable channel bills itself as an outlet for fair and unbiased reporting, as espoused in its motto “We report.

What FOX has going for it, apparently, is “attitude.”
The Rhetorica Network
I offer commentary on the rhetoric of the American conversation, especially as it unfolds in documentary film, the news media, and politics. Check out my feeds on Twitter and Instagram. Also be sure to see my work at Carbon Trace Productions, a non-profit documentary film studio in Springfield, Missouri. I am a Professor of Media & Journalism at Missouri State University. I teach classes in mobile journalism and documentary filmmaking.
