The Picus News Network is one of Picus TVs most popular stations. The news is presented by Eliza Cassan and others such as Keith Lighter. As well as bringing viewers up to date on the latest international news, Picus News anchors interview celebrities and moguls such as Hugh Darrow, the cyber-Olympian Sandra Pappenhaus, and David Sarif.

Due to its ties with the Illuminati, Picus TV engages in the spreading of propaganda and misinformation in order to sway the public's opinion about certain issues. In particular, Picus takes on a barely concealed bias against mechanical augmentation. High ranking members of the cabal actively encourage Picus TV to amplify its anti-augmentation stance.[2] It takes every opportunity to present augmentations as dangerous and gives a disproportionate amount of positive coverage to the anti-augmentation lobby.

The CEO of Picus' Montreal branch, who is also a member of the Illuminati, orders Picus TV employees to get the President of Mexico in 2027 removed from power. They have done this previously with other political figures by revealing incriminating information about them. In the case of the President of Mexico, Picus plans to reveal his ties with the Russian Mafia.[3] Much of Picus News Networks reporting on the Australian civil war is biased and unfairly demonises the resistance. Picus employees are concerned that the level of propaganda used when reporting on this topic will lead to the company being officially investigated.[4] Viewers familiar with the events in Australia notice this transparent bias in reporting and write letters of complaint to the corporation.[5] Regardless of this, Picus News continues to put a slant on issues in order to benefit the goals of the Illuminati.

The propaganda and occasionally downright fabrications presented by Picus News Network is often provided by Picus' secretive subdivision, Picus Confidential. Picus Confidential use image editing software to create scenes from scratch which are subsequently presented as news by Picus TV.
