  • Fox News Response
    Fox News called the film "illegal copyright infringement" for its use of clips from Fox News Channel programs. It also said the film misrepresented the employment history of four people identified as former Fox News employees. Fox News challenged any news organization that thought this was a major story to "put out 100 percent of their editorial directions and internal memos [and] Fox News Channel will publish 100 percent of our editorial directions and internal memos, and let the public decide who is fair."
