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.
