Tell the FCC to FLUSH FOX!

Here’s how to contact the FCC:


From Robert Greenwald:

Dear activists, colleagues and friends,

Most of you are aware, and most likely have been for a while, that under the guise of “news” Fox has offered its viewers a steady stream of bias pertaining to social and political issues since its inception in 1996. From attacking Black America to pushing for war with Iran, from demonizing bloggers to distorting environmental issues, theirs is quite a record of achievement in spouting propaganda that is neither fair nor balanced.

Today we have a surprise (well at least it surprised all of us at BNF). Thanks to the terrific work of the News Hounds, we bring you Fox and ole’ Billy O’Reilly attacking decency. Yes, you read that right. The self-righteous, pompous, bloviators who deign to lecture on how we should behave in our personal lives, are in fact exploiting women, pandering to the lowest common denominator and pushing smut out on the airwaves on a daily basis!

Watch the video:

And this will definitely raise your hackles. YOU ARE PAYING FOR THIS! Yes, you read that right too. So watch the video and pass it along to as many on your email list as possible. We simply must let the FCC know we are mad as hell about having their smut in our homes and being forced to pay for it. And we’re simply not going to take it anymore.

P.S. Here’s what Gloria Steinem had to say about the video: “Fox News shows more sexualized violence and humiliation than probably any other network — all in the name of condemning it — while under-showing violence in Iraq, all in the name of supporting it. After this video, smart viewers and advertisers will boycott Fox.”

    Wrong. Any attempt to organize a boycott against Fox News will be met by supporters like me who will double and triple our support for the network’s advertisers. The boycott will be turned into a cash cow.

    I do think there is too much T&A snippets on Fox News, but there have also been some pretty tasteless sexual innuendos from Olbermann. And on that note: Do you see conservatives trying to boycott MSNBC’s sponsors because of Bathtub Boy? Nope. Lefty cranks can have Olbermann and his puny little audience to their hearts’ content. We’ll keep Fox News. And you won’t take it away from us.

    Fox News is a network that gives both sides of the story, as opposed to nothing but liberal propaganda like MSNBC and CNN. I don’t understand why liberals hate fox so much. Is it because they speak the truth and give everyone a fair chance?
