Levitan's comments were in response to Fox News host Laura Ingraham's Monday night remarks that the migrant detention camps housing kids are akin to "summer camps". It is designed specifically to support NPR's Collaborative Journalism Network, which was created to better connect NPR's nearly 1,800 journalists embedded around the world by linking newsrooms within geographical regions to better share resources, cover breaking news more efficiently, collaborate on overall coverage and ramp up investigative reporting, hire and deploy more beat reporters and elevate local and regional stories to the national level, eliminating "news deserts" in the U.S. Family Guy is also produced by 20th Century Fox TV for the Fox network.

Feig's condemnation of the company behind 2013's "The Heat" and 2015's "Spy", both of which he directed for 20th Century Fox, adds to the mounting criticism being directed at the film studio's corporate parent for the way that cable channel Fox News has handled coverage of the child-separation policy aggressively pursued by the Trump administration.

Pardon my generalisation but, with the recent development at hand, it is hard not to lose objectivity. He shared in an interview back in October, "I cried at the end! ".

Levitan was responding to a Sunday tweet from MacFarlane, who express outrage about Fox News' anchor Tucker Carlson saying, "If you're looking to understand what's actually happening in this country, always assume the opposite of whatever they're telling you on the big news stations". Apatow, the director of comedy hits like "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" and "Knocked Up", said that he hasn't worked at Fox since 2002, likely referring to the comedy series he created called "Undeclared", which lasted one season on the Fox network. That family promotes evil ideas and greed and corruption. Just blindly obey Fox News. "The [Murdochs] support these policies!" he blasted.

Joining in the chorus was also Modern Family co-creator Steve Levitan, who likewise made it clear that he stands with MacFarlane - and against Fox, despite the fact that 20th Century Fox Television produces his long-running sitcom. "Where are the Fox stars and executives speaking up?!"
