    MoveOn et. al. Attack FoxNews Advertisers

    From Foxnews.com,
    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. Once a database is gathered, an organized phone-calling campaign will begin, said Jim Gilliam, vice president of media strategy for Brave New Films, a company that has made anti-Fox videos.


    The groups want to first concentrate on businesses running local ads, as opposed to national commercials.

    "It's a lot more effective for Sam's Diner to get calls from 10 people in his town than going to the consumer complaint department of some pharmaceutical company," Gilliam said.
    Funny, I thought it was the Bush Administration that was silencing critics (although I've never heard how exactly they are doing this). I don't particularly care for Fox News, so I don't watch it. However, these liberal groups are apparently not content to simply not watch Fox News, they feel the need to punish those small businesses that advertise on the network. Of course, Adam Green, the spokesman for Moveon.org says "We're not trying to silence anybody." That is, of course, completely bogus and transparent.

    Remind Fox News' advertisers (and the public) that MoveOn.org itself is an anti-Semitic and anti-Catholic hate organization.

    In 2006, MoveOn had to shut down its Action Forum in disgrace after it was proven that MoveOn exercised editorial control in favor of statements to the effect that Jews control all the media, Jews have divided loyalties between Israel and the U.S., Jews did "something" to deserve the Holocaust, "the Catholics are raping your children," "Catholic Pedophiles of America," prominent African-Americans are "house slaves," and numerous 9/11 conspiracy theories.

    MoveOn itself published a derogatory photomanipulation of Pope Benedict waving a gavel in front of the U.S. Supreme Court, along with a bulletin that cited an anti-Semitic source.
