One company, two forms of media

Keith Rupert Murdoch's Fox News is well known for its right-wing views and opinion-lead news, with presenters often shouting down guests and terminating their microphones in not so subtle acts of censorship.

Check out this video of one of their reporter's shocking rants against the BBC after the Hutton report came out investigating David Kelly's death. We'd never see something like this on Newsnight.

But compare the video to an article on their website about the same incident. While also an opinion piece (and by a journalist with the same opinion as the TV anchor) it is far more balanced and fact-based, without any of the vitriol.

This is in stark contrast to the stereotype that you can get away with much more on the web than you can in other media.
