With the debate around what constitutes fake news continuing to make headlines, Seth MacFarlane has weighed in on how he feels about Fox News' portrayal of other media outlets.

The Rhode Island native has been a mainstay at Fox for nearly two decades, creating shows for the network like "Family Guy", "American Dad", and "The Orville", among others. MacFarlane, whose shows appear on a network owned by the same parent company as Fox News, followed up on Stelter's tweet by calling out the "fringe shit" being peddled by his employer. Whoever winds up with those prizes, Fox News and the Fox broadcast network will remain together as the cornerstones of the "New Fox" corporate entity, along with the company's leading portfolio of local TV stations.

Carlson advised viewers not to believe the word of his rivals by saying that, "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".

MacFarlane derided Carlson's message.

MacFarlane made his comments on a retweet of CNN's Brian Stetler, whose show Reliable Sources is a look at how the media covers the news.

MacFarlane claimed he was "embarrassed" to work for the company following the comments from Tucker Carlson - one of their primary anchors. Disney and Comcast are both bidding for ownership for 20th Century Fox, so he might not become an employee of the Disney Corporation.
