Modern Family, Family Guy, Girls creators slam Fox over immigration stance

On Tuesday, Paul Feig, who collaborated with Apatow on Freaks and Geeks in the "90s, threw his lot in with the others, making a stand against Fox News" role in furthering the current administration's agenda. "For now, I will take some time to see where those people land, and at that point, make a decision about my future".

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.

Chris Sosa is the Senior Editor at AlterNet.

In addition, Conservative commentator Ann Coulter, appearing on the channel, claimed children crying at the border after being separated from their parents were "child actors". On Monday, MacFarlane donated donated $2.5 million to National Public Radio. Fox anchor Laura Ingraham compared the detention centers where children are being housed.

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane has lashed out at Fox News amid outcry over the network's sympathetic coverage of the Trump administration's policy of separating immigrant families. "Who has a movie, TV show, sporting event, news show at Fox?" he tweeted.

Seth responded on his Twitter account, "In other words, don't think critically, don't consult multiple news sources, and in general, don't use your brain".




Levitan had tweeted earlier that he was "disgusted" to work for the company.

Hollywood types aren't exactly the favorite of Fox News Channel personalities or viewers, but the developments could have business implications.

MacFarlane was not the only person from Fox's entertainment divisions to express their anger at Fox News recently, as the crisis at the U.S. -Mexico border continues and the coverage of the situation on Fox News diverges sharply from coverage in much of the rest of the news media.

Apatow has called on "employees of all of Fox" to "speak up".

"Just blindly obey Fox News" MacFarlane wrote on Saturday in response to a tweet from CNN's Brian Stelter, who quoted Carlson's plea.

Fox News said Ms Ingraham's "very personal, on-the-ground commitment" to children spoke for itself. He then went on to condemn the company and Fox News. The ownership of the 20th Century Fox television and film studios, which are sister companies to Fox News, are now up for grabs, the subject of a bidding war between Disney and Comcast. The parent company is also in the midst of selling off a large chunk of its entertainment assets, which have received bids from Disney and Comcast.
