    Liberals pressure Fox News advertisers

    By DAVID BAUDER

    AP Television Writer

    NEW YORK — 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. 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.

    Just more proof that liberals can’t handle the truth.

    Dems do in a matter of months, what the Publicans couldn’t do in 5.5 years – most of the 9.11 committee report is now FINALLY being enacted. This is a major blow to the Bush regime which fought the commission in the first place, and then stonewalled their report. Dems protect America. Publicans polarize it.

    Anyone here can’t handle the simple truth that doofus @ 1 is hopelessly addicted to right wing lies?

    Nobody? Thought so.

    @1: “Just more proof that liberals can’t handle the truth.”

    True. I’m having extreme difficulty dealing with such dishonesty and mendacity coming from what, to all appearances, is a fellow sentinent human being.

    Sometimes being a liberal is hard.

    My favorite quips from the multimedia extravaganza (both from Colbert):

    “I love this show [Hannity & Colmes]. It’s like watching Dorian Gray and his picture at the same time.”

    and

    “Sean Hannity knows there is no greater threat to America today than Bill Clinton 15 years ago.”

    re 1: “Just more proof that liberals can’t handle the truth.”

    No. It’s proof that a market-driven “news” source responds to market pressure more readily than truth.

    How do you arrive at these idiotic conclusions?

    Truth from Faux News? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

    If you read the *rest* of the articles about this you’ll find that one of the FauxNews slimeballs used exactly the same tactic to put pressure on JetBlue to drop sponsorship of a DailyKos event. Sauce for the goose and all that, you know.

    @8 Seattle Mike – except the campaign against fox sponsors have had no effect. Daily kos lost the “sponsorship” of jet blue. Jet Blue shareholder George Soros funded the 10 tickets.

    If not fear of being asked tough questions why aren’t the dems debating on fox?

    Yeah, the democrats have the balls to stand up to terrorists but not the mean old faux news people.

    SunnyJIM and the moment of silence.

    Please folks, can we have a moment of appreciation that our representative spent his staff’s time finding a quote form Eisenhower, his own time rehearsing the delivery of the quote to the House, the House’s time listening to the quote, and a few seconds of shared time devoted to mourning those who have dies in Iraq.

    Such nobility in a congess has rarely passed through this world before. Cicero himself would have been honored by such a noble speech.

    A memorable moment.

    Well, what the hell…we might as well admit that almost everything on TV is just there for entertainment anyway. Perhaps the next Presidential debate should be on “Entertainment Tonight” or “Access Hollywood”, sandwiched between vitally important bulletins about Paris Hilton’s dog or what color bra Victoria Beckham wore to her driving exam. Better yet, why not have all the candidates appear on “Fear Factor” and talk about the war or fixing health care while they jump from a helicopter and eat live frogs? Fuck Hannity and O’Reilly…put ‘em all in a “Celebrity Roast”, get ‘em drunk and have them trade insults with Don Rickles and Robin Williams.

    Nobody seems to get the point…and the point is, that there’s no point. It’s all bullshit.

    Don Joe spews:

    Well, Coultergeist, in a rare moment of candid truthfulness, admitted that Fox Noise has a vested interest in seeing the Democrats lose the Presidential election. So, which is worse, Democrats boycotting a debate on Fox Noise, or Republicans boycotting a YouTube debate?

    Hm… Democrats refusing to answer questions from the PR outlet of the RNC or Republicans refusing to answer questions from ordinary citizens. I’m sure some wingnut will come up with some twisted logic to explain this one away.

    The left is just pissed that Fox has consistently kicked CNN and MSNBC’s ass in the ratings. They just cannot stomach the fact that the most successful cable news outlet leans conservative. Furthermore, their boycotts should come as so surprise. Trying to silence views they disagree with is standard fare of the left. That is exactly what political correctness is…..muzzling speach and viewpoints they deem to be offensive. Instead of silencing conservative viewpoints, what they should be doing is trying to beat Fox news in the ratings. Since they can’t seem to accomplish that with the likes of childlike Sportscasters masquerading as serious journalists, the crazies on the left try and go after their sponsors.

    RightEqualsStupid spews:

    Actually not that a right wing, inbred turd wants or recognizes truth, but in just about every time period that matters, MSNBC is GAINING viewers and FAUX NEWS is LOOOOOOSING viewers. Continue with your fantasy now.

    If Republicans can’t face Youtube, how can they face the terrorists?

    Oh, and:

    except the campaign against fox sponsors have had no effect.

    As long as you don’t count Lowe’s pulling its ads from O’Reilly’s dog-and-pony show. But let’s ignore that; it can’t possibly count as much as having JetBlue’s logo on the YKos banner.

    If not fear of being asked tough questions why aren’t the dems debating on fox?

    Perhaps to make the point that Fox News (sic) is not a legitimate news organization? Perhaps they don’t want to lend it credibility it has not earned?

    If not fear of being asked tough questions, why aren’t the reps participating in the YouTube debate?

    If not fear of being asked tough questions why didn’t the GOP candidates show up at the NAACP presidential candidate forum? (note: Tom Tancredo was the only one to show up: http://politicalticker.blogs.c.....-at-naacp/ )

    Daily Kos did not lose the Jet Blue account. Jet Blue asked Kos to take the logo off his site but he still funded the tickets. That’s what I heard on Maddow anyway.

    After McDermott loses in the SCOTUS, I hope he is bankrupted by the judgement and accumulated legal bills. Why didn’t he just pay up years ago while the tab was less than 1/3 of what it is now? The scum bag must of actually thought he was going to get away with it.

    More evidence of the left’s inability to tolerate viewpoints that differ from their own. They prance around claiming to have a monopoly on tolerance and openmindedness, but the fact of the matter is they are the most intolerant people on the planet, even rivaling the Taliban.

    Sorry to inform you, Lowes pulling their account wasn’t due to the extreme left complaining. Not that facts matter to liberals. Due to the segment in Jan of the 15 year old boy being “kidnapped.”

    You are mistaken – not that facts matter to conservatives. Lowe’s pulled its ads previously, but later quietly reinstated them. It has since pulled them again.

    Here’s the response to a complaint about Lowe’s and their recent adverstising on the O’Reilly cavalcade of hate:

    Well whoopty fucking do!!! And the point of all this is????

    The only regret I have is that the detained al Qaeda members are not being fed to sharks piece by piece, having white hot rods fulls of spikes shoved up their ass, or other similarly brutal and unimagineable methods. Whatever we are doing to them, it is WAY to humane and we should wratchet up the beatings 1000 fold.

    Mark, you can speak your viewpoints anytime, the only problem is that it is usually just a lot of belly aching hypocricy. Doesn’t change the fact that I am Republican – I am Stupid and an idiot with my head up my ass looking for anything of any significance. I have yet to hear any viewpoints, just whining and crying. For example. A staunch Repbulican in my office (fat piece of shit that he is)- the other day he was crying about NAFTA and how it was President Clinton and the democrats that were the responsible for it. But if he only that George Sr. championed it and more Republicans voted it than Democrats. Now I’m not going to argue the good or the bad of NAFTA, you can do that. The point I make is that this fat piece of shit is just quick to whine and complain and blame instead of looking at his own parties faults – self-righteous bastard that he is.

    Mark, here is an excerpt from the Republican Debate in California.

    Moderator: I’m sorry, we have to go on. We have to go on.

    Governor Thompson, same theme. If a private employer finds homosexuality immoral, should he be allowed to fire a gay worker?

    Thompson: I think that is left up to the individual business. I really sincerely believe that that is an issue that business people have got to make their own determination as to whether or not they should be.

    Moderator: OK. So the answer’s yes.

    Thompson: Yes.

    Does Tommy Thompson want every homosexual on Welfare? Or would he prefer that they just starve to death. Homosexuals don’t have the right to a job like any other human being?

    Have the Republicans forgotten the words to the Pledge of Alligiance, “with liberty and justice for all” God knows every Republican wants the Pledge of Alligiance recited by all, they just don’t believe the words should be applied to all. Makes perfect sense.

    What about the constitution – that states “all men are created equal”. I guess Tommy has an asteric next to that one.

    Vote Tommy – You too can be a stupid, moronic idiot with your head up your ass.
