Fox News Launches its iPad App

If 24 hours a day of Fox News coverage of the world isn’t enough for you, Mashable reports that conservatives’ favorite news network is now launching its very own iPad app, promised to be as fair and balanced as the rest of Roger Ailes‘ empire.

According to Jeremy Steinberg, Fox News VP of digital media ad sales and business development, Fox News waited until now to release its app because it was looking for “the critical mass that would support the app financially.”

What you can expect: the app is divided into two key sections: a “Happening Now” section and a story timeline. Also, lots of ExxonMobil advertising, as Exxon is the exclusive launch partner for Fox News’s iPad app. But no live video so far. So don’t give up the cable channel just yet.
