"Fair and balanced" my ass!
Smear politics is something we're sadly becoming all too used to, but for an entire TV network to engage in a systematic and coordinated attack on a presidential candidate is outrageous. There's something terribly un-democratic about this kind of corporate-sponsored TV terrorism. I'm talking, of course, about Fox News.
It may be time to fight back.
Now, I wouldn't ever suggest anyone doing anything that would be illegal, but wouldn't it be ironic (not to mention somewhat funny) for average citizens on the street to hold up signs that says "Fox News Lies" every time a Fox camera was shooting something live?
How about in front of that stupid window for that dumb show "Fox & Friends"? Seems like a nice place to start. After all, "fair and balanced" means you should be subject to the same kind of criticism that you dish out. And if you print your message on the back of a "Ned Lamont" sign, you'll receive extra credit!
And the sign below works good, too, don't ya think? Now THAT'S "fair and balanced!"
Can ya take it, Fox? Huh? Can ya?
And filmmaker/activist Bob Greenwald has been keeping busy with his new website Fox Attacks.Com and the video below that takes a look at how Fox News has already started its deliberate and calculated smear campaign against Barack Obama. Awful.
Really, these people at Fox are beyond despicable. Rupert Murdoch is easily the worst thing that's ever happened to American TV journalism.
UPDATE: Scarce and Matt Browner-Hamlin over at MLN have each posted an article that also covers the Fox Attacks story.
