steve jobs vs fox news

iOuch!

In Walter Isaacson's new biography about Steve Jobs, a conversation between Steve and Rupert Murdoch is recounted in which the subject of Fox News came up.

Here's what Steve had to say about the news network:

"You’re blowing it with Fox News. The axis today is not liberal and conservative, the axis is constructive-destructive, and you’ve cast your lot with the destructive people. Fox has become an incredibly destructive force in our society. You can be better, and this is going to be your legacy if you’re not careful."

You hear that, Mr. Murdoch? Definitely might be worth giving some new thought to Steve's words!

What do U think? Is Fox News a destructive force in our society???

    Most of today's posts are already yesterday's news. This site has gone totally down hill in 2011.

    PEOPLE DONT WANT TO HEAR THE TRUTH YOU EITHER AGREE WITH FOX OR NOT BUT AT LEAST YOU HAVE BOTH SIDES NOT LIKE THE 3 THAT ARE GOING OUT OF BUSINESS NBC,CBS ABC

    I would have been curious as to what would be considered a constuctive force?
    MSNBC?
    WNPR?
    CBS?
    OWN?
    As bright, and as brilliant as Jobs was, I find it hard to take advice from a man who would only bath once a week, and people avoided him because of his BO

    Love Steve Jobs and his incredible inventions, but… Fox News has blown the cover off of the "mainstream media"! Take Dan Rather for instance and his made up news story on Bush, that he got busted on, was forced to "retire" early and laughed out of journalism forever! How many more of these "news stories" were out there that we'll never know about that they fabricated! When Steve Jobs says "our society" I feel he means a Joseph Goebbels type of "news" that we were being feed for years! Fox News would be off the air if their NEWS COVERAGE wasn't truthful, it's Fox's COMMENTARY (which is completely is different from news coverage) that scares the crap out of the liberals, because the conservative side finally found their voice!

    FOX (Faux) News is nothing but a black propaganda. I TOTALLY AGREE with Steve…

    Re: MR Pete – and I heard TEABBAGGERS like you dont brush their teeth…LOL.

    Murdoch sides with the group that generates the most news, not necessarily conservative ( He backed Australia's Labour Party). Fox News generates income as a soapbox for conservatives blowhards, but Murdoch has given $$$ to Hillary Clinton, and calls Obama a "rock star". It's all about money. I'm surprised he hasn't approached Bachmann and Palin with multi-million dollar offers to mud-wrestle at Madison Square Garden… I would totally buy that on Pay Per View.



  9. 9

    And Steve Jobs started by stealing from Xerox but you don't see that bringing him down.



  10. 10

    Oh BULLSHIT! This site just SUCKS now! WHY don't you just stick to CELEBRITY Gossip??? That is what we came here for!

    Re: smithygirl – Fox News won the legal right to LIE in court. Fox reporters were ordered to confirm in their story that Monsanto's bovine growth hormone was safe. They found out it wasn't. Fox sued them for refusing to lie, and WON.



  12. 12

    Why would he change foxnews when its the most watch cable news channel.



  13. 13

    Re: TravisFaulk – integrity…..he wasnt saying it wasnt getting viewers or making money but that it was destructive. the posters here (some of) having proved this to be true…fox is a propaganda outlet, anti- democrat, and causing social unrest and sometimes panic with made up, truth twisted, one sided b.s. delivered to you by some beauty pagent stepford wife wanna be model. yes other stations do as well and thats wrong they are all wrong for doing so and multiple wrongs don't make a right. fox is the worst of the bad and because more poeple watch that they are swaying the public into believing their crap. anyone who is pro fox is anti obama.. thats not coincidence. your their market, you consume their lies and they make their money

    Fox's second biggest stockholder is a member of the relative of Osama Bin Laden and a member of the Saudi Royal family. ….and you wonder why they are so pro-oil company. There is no difference between Faux news and Hitler's propaganda machine… Mein Kampf contains the blueprint of later Nazi propaganda efforts. Assessing his audience, Hitler writes "Propaganda must not investigate the truth objectively and, in so far as it is favourable to the other side, present it according to the theoretical rules of justice; yet it must present only that aspect of the truth which is favourable to its own side. (…) The receptive powers of the masses are very restricted, and their understanding is feeble. On the other hand, they quickly forget. Such being the case, all effective propaganda must be confined to a few bare essentials and those must be expressed as far as possible in stereotyped formulas. These slogans should be persistently repeated until the very last individual has come to grasp the idea that has been put forward. (…) Every change that is made in the subject of a propagandist message must always emphasize the same conclusion. The leading slogan must of course be illustrated in many ways and from several angles, but in the end one must always return to the assertion of the same formula."
    ."….Sound familiar?

    if fox news said obama is actually a magical elf you would have fox watchers the next day posting about how are president sucks because of his magical elf status. you'd blame him for the ozone problem, acne and ww1 and ww2. blind support and blind accusations are the name of the game

    the nazi's released propaganda films to sway public opinion into supporting the killing of jews, as do many countries involved in simular things, the japanese told their people americans would kill rape etc them and to kill themselves and their families beofore americans can. they listened and rallied behind something that now even they see as silly and untrue. fox news supports you are not far off from that mentality. when you look back and see the crap you bought into and why



  17. 17

    Perez, how is bashing on Fox celebrity news? I understand you use this site for your political agenda, but it's a mistake. If you hate Fox news, it's because you hate the fact we now have options to get our news. If we depended on CNN or ABC, we would all be equal idiots.

    Re: toolman85 – Real propaganda is the liberal slanted news we had for decades. You are the same extreme for the liberal news as your post claims that Fox is to the conservatives! You're a liberal extremist , but still an extremist! Kinda like the pot calling the kettle black! What everyone is still confused about here is the difference between NEWS and COMMENTARY! Fox NEWS is straight up and not slanted! Fox COMMENTARY shows offer up both sides, and let the viewers decide! Kinda a novel idea! From all the anti Fox posts, it is easy to see how threatened and scared the liberals are when the conservative side is presented to the public! If your liberal "ideas" are so fantastic why are you so threatened when they are challenged with the conservative side???

    A study was taken on fax News, and concluded the following:

    A University of Maryland study (PDF) published earlier this month found that people in the survey who had the most exposure to Fox News were more likely to believe falsehoods and rumors about national and world affairs when compared to those who paid attention to other news outlets.

    Re: Barbb143 – Steve Jobs was a celebrity, and his comment was controversial. Maybe you would have paid more attention if a Kardashian were involved.

    Re: buck – Buck - you sound like one of those redneck cousinhumper dudes…

    Re: smithygirl – The myth of the "liberal media" was started by corrupt conservatives who don't like to be called out for their crimes and transgressions. Conservatives are willfully ignorant by nature, and don't want real news- they like their tiny little soundbites and stupid slogans.



  24. 24

    Re: smithygirl – Let's talk extremists- A conservative extremist starts illegal wars, killing hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians so his stock in MIC companies will go through the roof. A liberal extremist camps in an old redwood so someone doesn't cut it down. Conservatives are selfish and DESTRUCTIVE.

    To all Fox supporters here…you've bought the fox party line. Blanced reporting of the news. you have got to be joking. Alas, I'm afraid it isn't joking…you're all just nuts and idiots.

    Fox news is a cancer on the American society. Rupert Murdoch/fox news are not allowed to own a media empire in Canada. Smart countries know that his brand of "news" is destructive to society. The canadian dollar is stronger than ours. A genius like Steve Jobs knows that this is very destructive as a whole. Only people with low IQ watch fox news anyway. They want lies spoonfed to them and don't want to research the truth on their own. If everybody would research the truth, fox news would be out of business. But they rely on the ignorant and the lowest IQ of our society to thrive.

    He was a dickhead but I agree with him. FOX news is a bunch of hateful racists! FOX News only shows one side, Republican. Makes me sick, such a communist-like channel.

    Re: MR Pete – CNN is conspicuously absent on your list. Tell me, are conservatives born with your immunity to truth and integrity or do you get vaccinated?



  30. 30

    Fox News is disgusting & very destructive to Americans!



  31. 31

    So telling the truth is now called being destructive? Re: smithygirl – amen!!!



  32. 32

    Totally agree.



  33. 33

    The mainstream liberal media and its followers are AFRAID of Fox news because they report facts. I am not a Republican or a democrat, I don't personally trust any politician, however, I do see the imbalance/slant to the left in the media. The left also resorts to name-calling and nastiness like bullies on the playground.

    Wow…all these comments and not a single one about The Daily.

    The Daily is an iPad publication. The owner of The Daily paid Steve Jobs tens of millions of dollars to be called the true "first" iPad only magazine.

    Steve Jobs had no problem taking that money.

    The Daily is owned by Rupert Murdoch.

    Hypocrites.

    Hopefully everyone buys this biography. EVERYONE. For the sole reason that he points out how corrupt Fox is.
