Eric Shawn apparently makes a claim here on a video released to the public by Fox News, that from the beginning, Fox News was always about going against the status quo. In fact Eric Shawn in quote said in the video,

It was always us against the status quo.

Yup, against norms like what our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Against things like a government of the people, by the people, for the people, not perishing from the earth. Things like justice and equality, Christian decency, and out of the many one. Fox news is there to destroy what makes America great. And all to make money off the psychologically damaged so they can feel like they are getting revenge

"Definition of the status quo

: the current situation : the way things are now"



"the existing state or condition."

As opposed to leftist corporate media.

Going against the Status Quo isn't always a bad thing. Look at the status quo in say North Korea. Would going against it be a bad thing?

But I guess if you are on the left and they are going against your beliefs it would be a bad thing in your world.

Pretty subjective. His statement wasn't an admission of some type of wrong doing the OP is missing the context.

Sure, and progressives bucking the status quo sent conservatives into a tizzy that fox news is just pushing and making billions on.

See here, it is subjective. And in our country, conservatives got to run things using religion as a measuring stick for a really long time. The boomers changed that, and now they've gone full retard.

Conservatism is a racket and its base is the marks. They keep falling for the same old lies over and over again.

The channel is literally killing its viewers to tighten its grip on them but alright.
This is generally as close as conservatives get to acknowledging their movement is horrible. They can never agree that conservatism in its current form is bad, but you can tell when they secretly agree with you because their will either say liberals do the same thing or that liberals forced them to be bad.

LMAO @pcgeek11 defending liars and propagandists. Fuck you and your tiny stupid broken brain! You willfully swallow their lies and choose to defend that action by projecting your own short comings on to others. Good dog!

Would going against the statue quo be lying like in the context of Fox News promoting birtherism?

Do you count promoting conspiracy theories going against the status quo?

How do you count their hosts railing against companies vaccine policies when your own company has one of the strictest and the host must comply to work there?

Is going against the status quo calling a sitting President a de facto terrorist because he fist pumped his wife, is black and has a strange sounding middle eastern name?

Lying is a #bothsides? Really? We had a Trump administration lie counter and it topped out at around 30K in 4 years.

People like you always bitched how left leaning the so called MSM is. "They didn't do a lie counter for Obama"

All these propogandist right wing media Fox News OAN, Newsmax, Brietbart, et al if they are doing their job have a chance to prove to people like you lying is #bothsides by starting their own Biden administration lie counter. Why didn't they? Too lazy? Can't make a conspiracy out of it? No fodder to brainwash their lemmings with?

Why don't you speculate with your intelligence why none of these media outlets have done so.

Conservative: against change, maintain status quo
Fox News (a "news" network for conservatives): We're "fighting" the status quo (by convincing as many people as possible that change is bad)

What's it like to have your head up your ass 100% of your life?

You're right, it wasn't an admission. It was a bald-faced lie. The only status quo they were fighting was by pretending news and editorial are the same thing.

I think it's important for everyone to understand what conservatives mean when they say the 'liberal media'. They define 'liberal' as 'not conservative', meaning any news source that isn't explicitly on their side is liberal.

Yeah, you can immediately dismiss anyone that mentions the liberal media. They just announced that their political opinions are worthless.

It was always foxnews fighting against news organizations and their journalism.
Fighting against other news organizations that presented stories researched by journalists that certain people did not want to hear because it challenged assumptions.
Fighting against other news organizations by instead focusing on counter narratives rather than the news story itself.
Journalist on scene reports that fire department showed up to rescue cat in tree?
FoxNews correspondent in hotel poses question on why fire departments are forced to hire non white males and if affirmative action is weakening fire departments.

Journalist reports from streets of Yemen after interviewing both Houthi rebels and Saudi backed forces as well as interviews with local civilians?
FoxNews correspondent in Dubai hotel poses question if Democrats are doing enough to support Israel as Iranian weapons end up in the hands of Houthi rebels.

Journalist travels to Iraq Iraq border to interview locals who witnessed trade between Iranians and Iraqi Merchants?
Foxnews correspondent "embedded" with detachment in Baghdad splits time between hotel and random convoy to an airbase to get shots for upcoming segment posing the question of whether Biden will save Israel from an Iranian Nuclear attack....
