Weazel News is a news branch of Weazel that parodies Fox News.

The Weazel News name was first mentioned briefly in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, during a closing dialog in "Coq O Vin" in Liberty City Free Radio. It is in Grand Theft Auto IV, however, when its prominence was elevated, reporting events of Liberty City and the exploits of the player.

In GTA IV, Weazel News is a massive news network, with several divisions, including Weazel Sports, Weazel Weather and Weazel Business. Niko can visit the website, watch it on TV or most commonly, listen to it on the radio.

Reporters

Radio stories

The news on the radio will update itself as the player progresses through the story.

GTA IV

The Lost and Damned

The episode features most stories from the GTA IV storyline in addition to original stories for the new storyline:

The Ballad of Gay Tony

The episode features stories unique to Luis Fernando Lopez' storyline, but references events in the other plots as well.

Trivia

  • As explained above, Weazel News mocks Fox News, as both weasels and foxes are native animals to America and Europe, presuming that it's a Red Fox.
  • 'Weasel' is also used as a word to show cowardice, 'To weasel out of something'
  • Weazel in Weazel News is spelled incorrectly.
  • The Weazel News helicopter is a two-bladed Maverick, a design cut from the final version of GTA IV.
