Don’t tell Keith Oblermann, but an official Android app for Fox News has arrived in The Android Market. Bill O’Reilly and the gang are now hunting down “pinheads” with “fair and balanced” coverage delivered straight to your Android device.
Though Rupert Murdoch is someone who clearly doesn’t grasp modern technology, he has wisely hired some people who do. Fox News is one of the most popular iPhone apps and you can bet that it will shoot up the Android download charts, too. The Fox News app features show schedules, video clips highlighted by the network, live radio, sharing to Facebook/Twitter, FoxNews.com articles, and breaking news alerts. It also allows readers to mark items as favorites.
We’ve previously covered the launches of other popular news sources like The Huffington Post, New York Times, and NPR, so I feel obligated to mention that one of the biggest names in news is releasing an Android app as well. See, Republicans – we’re fair and balanced, too.
