Fox Nation is a conservative news website operated by the Fox News Channel that began operation on March 30, 2009.

According to Fox News, "Fox Nation will be a forum for Americans to speak out on important and controversial issues, and to act on their beliefs and values — while always upholding the traditional American ideals of free speech, fair play, and tolerance... at FOX Nation, the American people will be the stars."[1]

The site features news articles, video clips, and links to editorial blogs by noted conservative political commentators like Bill Kristol and Charles Krauthammer, as well as liberal political commentators, like Susan Estrich. In keeping with the site's premise, viewers are invited to post comments about the various topics featured on Fox Nation, which Fox News described as "a new community where all Americans are encouraged to share, discuss, and debate."[1]

Criticism

Fox Nation has been criticized with claims of misrepresenting news stories in order to promote a conservative viewpoint.[2] Karl Frisch, a senior fellow at Media Matters for America, believes that the site "has displayed an uncanny ability to mislead readers, twist the truth, spread wild conspiracy theories, and misrepresent the reporting of legitimate journalists and media outlets."[3]
