The new film Outfoxed is really making the rounds in liberal/progressive circles. Here's a sample of what the progressive media have been saying:

Fox News: Unfair and Unbalanced

As Robert Greenwald's film "Outfoxed" generates controversy and acclaim, AlterNet joins in a major campaign to challenge Fox as a partisan news channel – a 24/7 commercial for a political party, and an insult to America's media consumers. And we're going to need your help to carry the battle forward.

Outfoxing the Conservatives

He's as creatively talented as Michael Moore and even more of a political activist, but to this point practically unknown by comparison. Now, though, his documentaries are about to become just as controversial as those of Moore. He's Robert Greenwald, the Hollywood movie and television director/producer/provocateur. Unlike Moore, Greenwald stays behind the camera, but suddenly this week his name is everywhere because of the ambush-style release of his latest documentary, "Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism."

This is from the liberal Media Matters for America web site:

You've seen Outfoxed; now check out MMFA's outing of FOX misinformation and get involved

Following last week's debut of Outfoxed, Media Matters for America intensified its monitoring of the FOX News Channel, documenting and correcting conservative misinformation in real time and holding FOX to its own "fair and balanced" standard. The MMFA team posted 15 researched items in just the last week exposing false and misleading claims on FOX, including Sean Hannity's distortions of John Edwards's Senate voting record; Brit Hume's selective use of opinion polls to make it look like the Kerry-Edwards ticket has less momentum than it does; Bill O'Reilly's misleading claims (twice) about Americans' support for banning gay marriage in the Constitution, and John Gibson's false claim that "80-some percent of reporters are self-described liberals."
