Overview of this Controversy


Date Originated: October of 2013
Categories: Fox News & Rupert Murdoch
An upcoming book by NPR's David Folkenflik claims that Fox News public relations staff used "dummy accounts" to rebut negative and even neutral blog posts about the company. The book claims that staff members would go to great lengths to cover their tracks and would even set up various wireless broadband connections so it wouldn't be known that a paid Fox News employee was the person writing the comments.
