Fox News Toots Its Own Horn With NY Times Ad

On Thursday, in a move of unabashed self-promotion, Fox News fluffed itself in full view, in three prominent newspapers, among them the New York Times, borrowing a criticism from a Times review of its morning show "Fox & Friends," and co-opting it proudly. Follow a July 19th column in which TV critic James Poniewozik referred to the viewing habits of President Trump, wrote of "Fox & Friends," "Suddenly, for no other reason than its No. 1 fan, it is the most powerful TV show in America." The review went on to compare the show to children's programs that invite audience participation, and said that "President Trump is the show’s subject, its programmer, its publicist and its virtual fourth host." But Fox News - as it is wont to do - did away with the context of the quote, choosing to place a partial version in a full-page advertisements in the Times, Wall Street Journal and the New York Post, leaving out everything but the phrase "the most powerful TV show in America."The show's co-hosts celebrated the ad on Thursday morning's show, proudly holding up a copy for viewers to see, ironically driving home the very childishness described in the original article.
