Following the news that Fox apparently invited Electronic Arts onto "Live Desk With Martha MacCallum" to discuss Mass Effect, GameDaily wondered what EA's reaction would be. It seems EA's not interested.
don't give up now EA!
Think of it as free advertising EA. Fox is offering what amounts to a 5 minute ad for the game.
or a 5 minute biased bashing?
Obviously Fox would be trying to win the argument no matter what, especially if they hold it in fox's studios. They should choose a neutral place for that. EA is not dumb, Fox doesn't deserve all the buzz around that controversy.
I agree. I'm a journalism major and they press the fact that retracting a statement is like the worst case scenario. Considering it's Fox News, I'm guessing that they will try to find some way to spin the debate in their favor...to keep "credibility".
i wonder whats the state of journalism nowadays. What is the percentage of crap in news story... (because of lack of research, corruption $ ,lack of intelligence, misinformation, etc..)
Not to mention the fact that the news media is basically a business for selling viewers/readers to advertisers. Nice to be a product ain't it?
There is nothing to debate. A youtube search will let you see that scene online & it is absolutely harmless.
You're right, its totally been misrepresented. That's the point really, Fox has just basically lied and "smeared" the game as was their intent. For anyone who watches Fox News -- and knows about ME and videogames -- needs to know that *every* Fox News story is this kind of warped, sensational fabrication. Fox news is a propaganda network for the interests of the Plutocracy - dont forget it. If you see it in public, change the channel. If you know someone who watches it, tell them they're foolish.
cooper lawrence has retracted her statement, but knowing fox news, im sure they'll get ANOTHER ignorant and ill informed person to attack the game if EA happens to go on the show
my teacher had us watch a documentary on Fox called "Out-Foxed". was good info. on the shady behind the scenes practices of fox news stations; man they are anything BUT fair and balanced.
haha, i saw this vid and it showed alot of the faults fox made over the years http://youtube.com/watch?v=...
poor misguided dummycrats. I would rather be a rightwing nut job then a liberal with no nuts and no job. the people who are always talking about restricting gaming are your fellow dummycrats. every news outlet is biased, cnn(communist news network), nbc, cbs, abc, even down to the print media. National surveys have fox as the most trusted news network.
There is no such thing as "Conservative" or "Liberal" news. That's the point. Fox isnt *news* at all, it is fabrication and propaganda that reenforces your false world-view. Anyone who lives outside the united states watches fox and thinks it is a PARODY. Everything they put on that station is CLEARLY false. This has to be clear to you. When you watch other news, and it appears "Liberal", it is because you have a delusional world view -- do you get it? REALITY has a well known Liberal bias.
I am a Fox News fan myself. I think many do not understand here what kind of segment this was on.Its not a news one! Martha MacCallum is a ex NBC Lib who does a little morning distraction show on Fox now (Yes Fox has plenty of Liberals over there too). Anytime you see a "discussion" on a topic in cable news with two side representing,its not actual news being reported.Its a live opinion editorial segment basically.
i shank u, Im not surprised at all that some LIBERAL college professor would make a propaganda hit piece created by a RENOWNED LEFT WING ACTIVIST, mandatory watching. That tells me the ass clown has 0 credabilty. You should demand a refund!
Watched Geff and that dumb chick the other day and those Fox Jackasses cut him off before finishing he could even finish his sentence.
What? EA wanted a fight, we got them a fight, and now they don't wanna throw down? weak...
they just wanted fox to correct their statements
against ignorant FoxNews robots.
now now don't be hasty this is a chess game and its Foxes move now, You plan ahead in chess not rush to make moves. Lets see how long Fox can keep quite before they show their true colour again. I would gess EA is doing???
fox is just doing it for the ratings... EA debating this with them on their network is a win-win for Fox. Now if they were to argue/debate this on another network, then EA should do it..... otherwise, EA has no reason to give rating to a network that tried to deliberately damage their reputation
