Fox News Channel was founded in New York, New York, by Rupert Murdoch. The company operates a cable/satellite news channel which focuses on the conservative viewpoint. As of February of 2015, it is estimated that 81.4% of households receive the Fox News Channel.
The company is very popular among conservatives and Republicans, but it has been embroiled in controversy by slanting the news and has been embroiled in numerous accusations that the channel, whose byline is “Fair and Balanced Reporting”, has misrepresented facts.
In January of 2014, the company reached a landmark 145 consecutive months as the number one rated news channel. The channel also hosted the GOP 2016 Primary debate in August and had an astounding 24 million viewers, which is the largest audience for any cable news event in history.
A large scale protest organized by a conservative watchdog group, Media Matters, hit Fox News Headquarters March 13, 2019. This occurred the same day that the company held an emergency meeting with advertisers in an attempt to soothe them regarding inflammatory remarks made by hosts Tucker Carlson and Jeanine Pirro.
Headquarters for Fox News is located in New York, New York.
