MoveOn & Daily Kos Go On "Anti-FOX News" Campaign Blitz
The hard Left is obviously not happy with FOX News and Bill O’Reilly for exposing their premier website for what it is… “Hate of the worst order. It’s like the Nazi Party. It’s like the Ku Klux Klan.”
So… They are lashing out at the blasphemous FOX News.
Here is one of the “anti-FOX News” ads a MoveOn.org associate put together that shows FOX News analysts daring to question man-made global warming dogma:
HOW DARE FOX NEWS!
How dare they question Saint Al Gore and the unquestionable global warming dogma!
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.
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 have successfully pressured Democratic presidential candidates not to appear at any debate sponsored by Fox, and are also trying to get Home Depot Inc. to stop advertising there.
At least 5,000 people across the U.S. have signed up to compile logs on who is running commercials on Fox, Gilliam said. The groups want to first concentrate on businesses running local ads, as opposed to national commercials.
Home Depot has not had an unusual number of calls, said spokesman Jerry Shields, and the home improvement chain will not change its advertising strategy.
“We’re not in the business of censoring media,” Shields said. “We need to reach our customer base through all mediums available.”
Groups like the Sierra Club have targeted Home Depot because they believe it’s inconsistent for the company to promote environmentally friendly products while advertising on a network that has questioned global warming.
It looks like the Marxists in the democratic party are rearing their ugly heads.
Good for Home Depot!
What a great excuse for shopping for home and garden supplies!
Obviously… Daily Kos is not happy about being outed as a hate site by FOX News analyst Bill O’Reilly.
And, since they can’t argue with the facts they will resort to the customary Leftard reaction… Attack the messenger and not the message.
It looks like the Left is proving O’Reilly right!
It sort-of reminds you of those former Nazi storm troopers, Huh?
Glenn Reynolds has more.
Let Freedom Ring is not amused with this latest liberal tactic to silence the opposition.
UPDATE: Hatemongers score- Lowe’s yanks ads from O’Reilly Factor.
UPDATE 2: Kos lied— Lowe’s boycotted O’Reilly over the Hornback affair months ago.
