Comedy Giants Putting Some Serious Pressure on FOX News

Refresh for updates Adam Scott, co-star of the Fox sitcom Ghosted, has added his voice to the growing opposition - both inside and outside the Fox entertainment family - against Fox News and what the actor calls the network's "support for & blatant lying about state-sponsored child abuse".

MacFarlane of course is the creator behind Fox tv's powerhouse shows Family Guy, American Dad! and The Orville. "For now, I will take some time to see where those people land, and at that point, make a decision about my future", he said in a statement.

Director Judd Apatow, who said he hasn't worked with Fox since 2002, called on those who work at the company to speak out.

This outrage at 20th Century Fox has resonated with other similar-minded producers who have programs running on the company, including Steve Levitan, creator of Modern Family, which airs on ABC but is produced by Fox Television.

So while Trump and Kim could be among the 330 nominees for 2018, an award linked to North Korea may be more likely in 2019. It is unclear whether he was nominated for this year's prize, but he was also put forth as a candidate in 2016 and 2017.


Such open criticism of Fox News coming from within Fox's own creative community marks an unusual level of discord within a sprawling media company that has long managed to contain a wide range of dissenting viewpoints.

He also showed support for MacFarlane, who had said he was "embarrassed" to work for the media giant in light of Fox News host Tucker Carlson telling viewers not to believe other news outlets.

"People don't want to deal with the fact that when you work for any part of Fox you are supporting a family which has made billions lying and manipulating our citizens for their personal financial gain", Apatow tweeted Tuesday morning. "Just blindly obey Fox News" MacFarlane wrote Saturday in response to a tweet from CNN's Brian Stelter, who quoted Carlson's plea.

"I'm disgusted to work at a company that has anything whatsoever to do with Fox News", he tweeted on Monday. "But I too can not condone the support their news division promotes toward the immoral and abusive policies and actions taken by this current administration toward immigrant children". Apatow tweeted Monday. "Imagine if it was your kids. How can you remain silent when they promote these policies?"
