Fight Misinformation On Local News - Media Matters Take Action

Fight Misinformation On Local News

Will you volunteer?

Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes' 21st Century Fox owns and operates 28 stations in major media markets around the country. These stations might seem independent, but Fox uses them to push misinformation to viewers like you.

Watch this short video to see how Fox News impacts local stations:

By operating local stations, Fox News executives can transmit key right-wing talking points to large numbers of people who don't watch cable news. And with Fox-owned stations now reaching 37% of U.S. television audiences, that's a huge opportunity for the conservative media.

Unfortunately for Murdoch and Ailes, we know their tactics, and we're not going to let them slowly turn their stations into miniature versions of Fox News.

Want to help us fight back?

If you live near one of the following cities, volunteer to help us keep an eye on your local station. If you notice them airing misinformation from corporate, send us a tip and we'll call them out together:

Arizona - Phoenix - Fox 10 News
California - Los Angeles - Fox 11 News
California - San Francisco - KTVU Channel 2
Florida - Gainesville - Fox 51 News
Florida - Orlando - Fox 35 News
Florida - Tampa Bay - Fox 13 News
Georgia - Atlanta - Fox 5 News
Illinois - Chicago - Fox 32 News
Michigan - Detroit - Fox 2 News
Minnesota - Minneapolis - Fox 9 News
New York - New York City - Fox 5 News
North Carolina - Charlotte - Fox 46 News
Pennsylvania - Philadelphia - Fox 29 News
Texas - Austin - Fox 7 News
Texas - Dallas - Fox 4 News
Texas - Houston - Fox 26 News
Washington, DC - Fox 5 News

Have a Fox station in your area that isn't on this list? Local news stations fall into two categories: "owned and operated" stations, where content is controlled by a network or larger parent company, and "affiliate" stations that are not owned by a central network. While Fox affiliates can also spread misinformation, we're starting with a focus on stations explicitly controlled by Murdoch and Ailes.

Don't have any stations owned and operated by Fox near you? You can still help by spreading the word:
