A political smear campaign that originates within and is perpetuated by the Fox News Channel, manufactured to stir up reactionary fears among the FNC's political base. Often without merit, exaggerated or even consciously concocted out of whole cloth, the controversy targets FNC political opponents. Major cable news channels will cover the issue only after the attack has struck its target and becomes a matter of national significance, if ever.
"Yeah, unless you change the channel. Then you're hearing no one mentioning that. Oh my god, it's a Fox News Exclusive!"
-Jon Stewart commenting on the "Back of the Bus-Car" Fox News Exclusive event, Nov. 01, 2010
