Fox News shows off new “news deck”, a room filled with 55-inch touchscreen tablets [Video]

What you see in the video above is Fox News’ new “news deck”, fitted with 55-inch touchscreen tablets/computers powered by Windows 8.

Fox says the new “news deck” is designed to appeal to viewers who are “nonlinear” — those who sift through news all day on their phones and computers. “Just like you, we get our news from multiple platforms,” Smith says, “and this is the place where viewers can watch us sort it all out as it happens.”

Okay, I have to make a Fox joke here: No wonder their news is so bad, they are using Windows 8.

    [@New Moon] ha! Both Jon Stewart and Steve Colbert laid into Fox for these ridiculous displays. And yeah I agree, aside from radiation the repetitive stress on those poor news assistants shoulders is going to cost them a fortune in medial bills.

    WTF, I haven’t checked news for a few days, and this happened to be the first news I clicked and watched! Being surrounded by these things means you’re drowned in the sea of electromagnetic radiations. I’m not even saying cell phones cause or do not cause cancer! If you know what I mean. Really sorry for the employees.

    So you hate Fox, and think that news people do not know, yet your source is another News source. Does this make sense to anyone but a leftist?

    Yeah, Fox news is bad for you, yet it crushes any leftist lapdog media with its ratings and quality of both reporters and content. Your MSNBC is about to go bankrupt with their fear mongering demagogue style news, so who is the one laughing now?
    Please stick to facts and not to propaganda. This article was about technology, yet you far left people could not let any mention of Fox news go without hate filled rants that lack basic common sense or fact.s

    Technology is great – but it doesn’t mean that newsrooms are all-knowing, especially Fox. My latest favourite is the one regarding Anna Kooiman (blonde bimbo to some folks) and the asinine assumption that a spoof news story about Obama and an Islamic museum was real. Hilarious!

    tl;dr “Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear” (old US newspaper workers’ motto). Meanwhile, the rest of the world has a damn good laugh at Fox’s expense!

    Rediculous… first off, any news that shows the “news-room” isn’t really reporting the news, they just want to appear to be working on news related stuff. A real station would have reporters on the beat and a closed room for editing. Second, they all look like 5 year olds trying to operate a giant ipad, comical but rather sad when they report serious news and all I can see is some guy in the background in his late 40’s trying to figure out how to operate a ludicrously large tablet.
