What has been the biggest media story for the past week?   Could it be News Of The World exploding?   Rupert Murdoch and News Corp?  Telephone hacking and journalists corruption a national police service?  Criminal journalism?

Well, that all depends.   FOX News has a media criticism panel show called, predictably, FOX News Watch.   This, to FOX, was what mattered in media news:

And then there's this, from AlterNet: posts "Behind the breaks" videos featuring panelists' discussions during Fox News Watch's commercial breaks. In one, Fox News contributor Cal Thomas asks, "Anybody want to bring up the subject we're not talking about today?" and adds, "I'm not going to touch it."

In the remote chance you didn't know, FOX is owned by News Corp.   So much for "fair and balanced."
