Moonbats attacking Fox News advertisers
The liberals have coalesced around their latest cause - attacking Fox News. Specifically, targeting companies, (both national and local), that advertise on the cable network.
Liberal activists are stepping up their campaign against FOX News Channel by pressuring advertisers not to patronize the network.
MoveOn.org, the Campaign for America's Future and liberal blogs like DailyKos.com are asking thousands of supporters to monitor who is advertising on the network, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. ...
The groups seem particularly angry at FOX's Bill O'Reilly, who has done critical reports on left-wing bloggers. On July 16, O'Reilly said the DailyKos.com Web site is "hate of the worst order," and sent a reporter to question JetBlue Airways Corp. CEO Dave Barger about the airline's sponsorship of a gathering run by DailyKos.
He'll never ride on JetBlue again, O'Reilly said.
FOX said JetBlue has since asked that its name be removed from the DailyKos.com Web site.
MoveOn.org is campaigning against FOX because it says the network characterizes itself as a fair news network when it consistently favors a conservative point of view, said Adam Green, the organization's spokesman.
"We're not trying to silence anybody," Green said. "(Conservative radio talk show host) Rush Limbaugh has a right to be on the air - he admits his point of view. FOX doesn't."
Is it just me, or does this remind anyone of the attitude the liberals had when Limbaugh first went national back in the late '80's? It seems to me that their anger stems from the fact that we now have another medium where liberal thought does not enjoy a virtual monopoly.
How dare someone have a news network that brings people on to talk about both sides of an issue, (other than having a conservative outnumbered by at least 3 to 1 if they did so). You can hear them whine know, "make it stop...they're questioning our ideology!" All I can say is welcome to just a little taste of the world conservatives have been living in since the dawn of television.
I think the real bottom line here is that these groups see something like this as an opportunity to raise money and build their mailing lists. Get the moonbats worked up enough to sign those petitions and send in their money!
