Comedy Giants Putting Some Serious Pressure on FOX News

Seth MacFarlane Says He’s ‘Embarrassed’ To Work For Fox; Fox Executive Hits Back

Judd Apatow calls for Fox stars to speak up against news division over coverage of Trump administration's zero tolerance immigration policy

Days after Seth MacFarlane's outrage over Fox News host Tucker Carlson's suggestion that viewers should discount any other media besides Fox News ignited the Internet, the Family Guy creator is acting on it with a $2 million donation to NPR and $500,000 to Los Angeles' NPR membership station, KPCC, the top news distribution for NPR content in Southern California.

Given the growing outcry against Trump's ongoing policy, and Fox News's steadfast desire to stand by the president, one can only assume that this is only the beginning of a mounting entertainment-industry backlash against Fox - and the leader it supports.

On Tuesday, Levitan, the co-creator of "Modern Family", which is produced by 2oth Century Fox, bolstered MacFarlane's comments with a tweet expressing his disgust at working for Fox.

Judd Apatow is continuing to put pressure on Hollywood to demand that FOX News discontinue their biased coverage of the news- specifically their recent coverage of Trump's immigration policy.

MacFarlane of course is the creator behind Fox tv's powerhouse shows Family Guy, American Dad! and The Orville. A Fox representative declined to comment on Monday night. He then went on to condemn the company and Fox News. We all choose who to work with.

Apatow released a series of tweets on Monday, slamming Rupert Murdoch for promoting "evil ideas and greed and corruption" with his media empire's coverage of President Trump and his administration's separation of migrant children from their parents.

"Not one new person who works for Fox or at Fox has spoken up strongly about their news channel supporting ripping families apart", Apatow later tweeted. Who is he to criticize anyone? He also produced Netflix's fourth season of "Arrested Development", which originally aired on Fox.

Feig tweeted, "I have made two films for 20th Century Fox and love the people in the movie and TV divisions". "Where are the Fox stars and executives speaking up?!"
