Fox News Channel

Fox News Channel (FNC), also known as Fox News, is a cable news channel owned by the Fox Entertainment Group, a subsidiary of News Corporation. As of April 2009, the channel was available to 102 million households in the United States and to viewers internationally, broadcasting primarily from its New York studios.

The channel was created by Australian-American media mogul Rupert Murdoch, who hired former NBC executive Roger Ailes as its founding CEO. It launched on October 7, 1996 to 17 million cable subscribers. It grew during the late 1990s and 2000s to become the dominant cable news network in the United States. In 2010, its programs took the top ten spots for most-watched cable news programs in the 25–54 age demographic, and the top twelve spots among total cable news program viewers.

Critics have stated that Fox News Channel promotes conservative political positions and biased reporting. Commentators, news anchors, and reporters at Fox News Channel have responded that news reporting and political commentary operate independently of each other, and have denied any bias in news reporting.
