"Foxaganda” (Fox + propaganda) usually refers to the Fox News Channel, but can also refer to Fox television stations or the 20th Century Fox Film Corporation—all owned by the Fox Entertainment Group. A “FOXaganda” citation from July 1996 (see below) does not refer to the Fox News Channel, which launched in October 2009.
The Fox News Channel has had critics who accuse it of being to closely associated with the Republican Party and right wing politics. The nickname “Foxaganda” has been cited in print since at least October 2003.
Other Fox News nicknames include “Faux News” (since March 2001), “Fux News” (since July 2001), “Fox Spews"/"Faux Spews” (since November 2001), “Fox Noise"/"Faux Noise” (since August 2004), “Fake News” (since September 2004), “Fixed News” (since October 2004), “Fox Comedy” (since December 2005), “Full Of Xenophobia” (since March 2007), “Fixed Noise” (since August 2007) and “FoxPAC” (since September 2009).
The more liberal MSNBC network has been nicknamed “PMSNBC” (since July 1996), “MSNBS” (since October 1996), “MessNBC” (since March 2002), “MSDNC” (since at least May 2005), “MSLSD” (since at least September 2005), “MSLGBT” (since at least October 2008) and “Moonbats Spouting Nothing But Crap” (since January 2010).
Wikipedia: Fox News Channel
Fox News Channel (FNC), commonly referred to as Fox News or Fox, is a cable and satellite television news channel owned by the Fox Entertainment Group, a subsidiary of News Corporation. As of April 2009, it is available to 102 million households in the United States and further to viewers internationally, broadcasting primarily out of its New York City studios.
The channel was created by Australian-American media mogul Rupert Murdoch, who hired former NBC executive and former Republican political consultant Roger Ailes as the founding CEO. The channel was launched on October 7, 1996 to 17 million cable subscribers. The channel grew in the late 1990s. Fox News finished the first quarter of 2009 as the second-most-watched cable network in primetime, behind USA Network.
Some critics have asserted that both Fox News’s reporting and its political commentary promote conservative political positions. Fox News Channel says that its political commentary and news reporting operate independently of each other and denies any bias in its news reporting.
Bush Administration propaganda masquerading as “news,” which can appear on Fox News or any other corporate media, along with so-called public channels like NPR and PBS. Combined form of “Fox” from Fox News Channel, the cable propaganda network owned by Rupert Murdoch and run by (former?) Republican Party operative Roger Ailes, and “propaganda.”
The Coultergeist was really dishing out the foxaganda on “Insanity & Comatose” the other night. She’s a major foxagandist.
Gwen Ifill’s roundtable with nothing but Republican Bush fluffers on PBS the other night was a bunch of foxaganda.
Is CNN stepping up the foxaganda by hiring wingnut opinionist Glenn Beck?

Controversial film-maker Oliver Stone is to direct an advert for a campaign calling for the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq.
Allright President AWOL and your pussy ass chicken shit hawks. Is Oliver Stone a Hollywood liberal? Well, yes, but ths Marine did TWO fucking tours in ‘NAM and was awarded the Bronze Star with “V” device for valor and the Purple Heart with one Oak Leaf Cluster.

We at News Hits found ourselves racing for the stash of pill bottles hidden at the back of our sock drawer and downing Valiums like they were Tic Tacs, desperately trying to keep from blowing a gasket after watching one too many commentators at Fox News launch into a vicious smear of the group ACORN last week.
And to think there’s a large segment of the population out there that actually believes the garbage that spews from the mouths of Sean Hannity and his fellow Foxagandists.

Of course his favorite sources are Foxaganda, WacknutDaily and NewsLacks.com, not to mention that he has a long distance suction pump from Rash Limpick’s rectum direct to his mouth.
