FOX News Channel Starts Showing Gritty Docu-Series

Recommended Posts

FOX News Channel premiered a series on the wild west entitled "Legends & Lies"

 

This continues FOX News/Business' push towards the original content market that MSNBC and CNN tapped years ago.

 

FOX News has began showing FBN's "Strange Inheritance" and Bill O'reilly's book movies on weekends as well.

 

Obviously can't be a ratings stunt, FNC has enough to spare. Is this a corporate experiment?

Probably.

 

It makes for good filler in the not so desirable timeslots and probably is much cheaper to produce than having talent and a support team make new content every single week.

Did I see somewhere that Bill O'Reilly is one of the brains behind 'Legends & Lies'?

He made appearances in both episodes shown.

 

But remember, he was once a history teacher, so it's not too far-fetched.

Since when did Bill-O-The Clown have a brain???

Fox News did air "The 1/2 Hour News Hour" way back in 2006... buried at 10pm on Sunday nights for about six weeks. Joel Surnow from "24" was the main person behind the show.

 

It was a 'conservative' iteration of "The Daily Show" ... and went over about as well as you would expect. The regular FNC viewer base tuned in, but the audience plummeted in subsequent weeks, and the show wound up being quietly cancelled.

All people, by design, have brains.

 

It's "human intelligence" that is an oxymoron.
