Victory! Fox News Nevada debate is cancelled.
Date:
March 9, 2007 3:32:45 PM PST

Dear activists, colleagues and friends,
We have a terrific victory to enjoy today. The Fox News sponsored Democratic presidential debate in Nevada has been cancelled. Activists all over the country came together -- from the netroots to grassroots to MoveOn to bloggers to the film we at Brave New Films created -- in a stunning and powerful rejection of the myth that Fox is a news station.

<snip>
Enjoy this important step in making very clear we will not accept propaganda as news any more.

Robert Greenwald
and the Brave New Films team

3. I just saw this over at Think Progress. People should know this. Recommend this sucker up
What great news!

:party:

Ha... FauxNews response

UPDATE II: Fox News attacks: We have not received official word from the Nevada State Democratic Party disclosing a change in debate plans. Rumors are being circulated and if true, news organizations will want to think twice before getting involved in the Nevada Democratic Caucus which appears to be controlled by radical fringe out-of-state interest groups, not the Nevada Democratic Party.

5. Flounder from "Animal House" said it better than I could...
"Oh, boy! This makes me so happy!"

Let's see their logical gymnastics to spin this into a victory; it's gonna take some serious work!

7. Disgusted
FOX is not in my opinion a news program at all, however a huge majority of the voters in Northern NV are Republicans, and yes we wanted them to see our candidates. OK so I hope your happy, great opportunity missed, it was never about FOX, it was about the crossover vote in November, in NV Democrats need Republican voters not the other way around, if we only sing to the choir Democrats LOSE. Congratulations

9. So you want the voters to see Dems being ridiculed by Fauxnews
Faux cannot go ten seconds without being snide and demeaning to Democrats.

But you cry at the the loss of this Fauxnews treatment. Any Democratic candidate who goes on FauxNews will gain no votes. They just gain an opportunity to be ridiculed by Fauxnews talking heads. Sure, Republicans will see these candidates but they will see them being laughed at and talked down to. Vote for these goofy idiots says Faux while rolling their eyes.

10. Agreed
FOX news would spin the debate after the fact for it's personal Republican-based smear capmpaign.
