Examines Rupert Murdoch's Fox News media empire. Takes an in-depth look at Fox News and the dangers of ever-enlarging corporations taking control of the public's right to know. Examines how the FCC helped Murdoch break the rules to establish a fourth network in the United States. The film explores the impact on society when media is controlled by one person. A system was created to monitor Fox News 24 hours a day for months to discover exactly how its shows worked. The result is an intense examination of Fox News and the lie inherent in its favorite motto "Fair and Balanced".
