Here is a piece titled "Sean Hannity: Carrie Prejean, Former Miss California, Talks Barack Obama Health Care Town Halls" put together on You Tube by Conservative New Media. It is a replay from an interview on Fox News.
It is important to recognize that the media producer and communicator are not Fox News and Sean Hannity. The producer and communicator are both the entity known as New Conservative Media. New Conservative media is very active in citizen journalism. There is not much readily available information to be found about them on the internet.
Pay close attention to the presentation of this piece. Does the content of the video reflect the title? Pay close attention to substance versus hype. What is this piece designed to do?
This particular piece was chosen because it is an example of a media producer (Fox News) and media communicator allowing their product(which is defined as fair and balanced)to be repackaged in a blatantly negative fashion without negative repercussion.
This video is evidence that Fox News allows their brand to be associated with negative stereotyping of President Obama.
Could this video lead Fox News viewers who view the repackaged video to believe Fox News endorses negative labeling?
