Tea Partiers boycott 'too liberal' Fox

Why Tea Partiers Are Boycotting Fox News

Why Tea Partiers Are Boycotting Fox News

Is Fox News going soft?

That is what a number of Tea Party activists are saying, and they are organizing a boycott to protest the conservative station’s coverage, especially what they view as the network’s relative silence in investigating the attacks on a diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya.


A leader of the boycott, Kathy Amidon, of Nashville, declined an interview, instead directing The Daily Beast to a website, Benghazi-Truth. The website, a single-page, 23,000-word manifesto complete with multicolored fonts, supposedly incriminating videos of Fox News’s complicity in a cover-up, and communist propaganda photographs, is kept by someone who identifies himself online as “Proe Graphique,” and who other members of the boycott described as someone who works “in New York media.”

By way of explanation, the website reports: “People ask why not all mainstream media? Why just Boycott FOX? The answer, again, is that FOX needs the Tea Party/conservatives more than the conservatives need FOX after FOX turned left, basically selling out the people who made FOX successful in an attempt to earn an extra buck. FOX is extremely vulnerable to these boycotts while the rest of the MSM doesn’t need us at all, to speak of.”

6. This is a RW dog and pony show likely orchestrated by FOX.

They will whine, "See how 'fairandbalanced' we are?"

8. IMO that's BS. Teabaggers are sitting in front of their TVs drooling while they watch Fox.

9. So if not for Faux, where will the mouthbreathers get their news? From BriteFart.com? Drudge? WND?


They're already batshit insane from the misinformation they're getting from Faux. It'll be something else when they start going even deeper into the gutter of RW media.

12. From BriteFart.com? Drudge? WND?

Only the ones who know how to read, probably less than 50%.

But my guess is most of them don't want to put in the effort it takes to read. Much easier to sit in front of a TeeVee, eat cheese doodles, drink beer, and watch Faux news.

14. Well these sites offer their info in hacked up video collages their viewers can easily consume, even


with their limited cognitive faculties.

See also: Acorn, Shirley Sherrod, etc.

11. Once more, the Conspiracy Theory web design template turns up

See http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=247x6742 and the sub-thread from #2. "Benghazi Truth!" is, inevitably, written by a Birther. And it is a multi-coloured mess.

13. Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn. Never thought that I would read logic from fools.

But behold below.

"FOX is extremely vulnerable to these boycotts while the rest of the MSM doesn’t need us at all, to speak of.”
