But I imagine there will be increasing pressure on Fox to do something about this show if Tyson continues to tell the truth without hedging.
Seth MacFarlane (who is one of the producers of Cosmos) was once asked about what it was like working for Fox, where Family Guy is aired.
He actually said there is a huge disconnect between the Fox News divisions and the entertainment division. They basically function as totally separate entities, never interacting with one another. So my guess is that the guys making Cosmos do not need to answer to the folks on the news side of the aisle.
In a funny way, the company is actually gaining on both sides. They produce a show that stirs controversy and then they report on the very controversy they created. Profit on both sides.
And that is ultimately what Rupert Murdoch is all about. Folks that worked for the guy indicated he had little political sway one way or the other, despite what most may think. He is a businessman. If he realized tomorrow that he could generate more revenue turning Fox News to the left of the aisle, he would do it without a moments hesitation.
